Description

The story of Canada spans millennia, and this coin takes you back in time to First Peoples that have made Canada the amazing place it is today. The Algonquian people were one of countless communities that existed in North America long before the Europeans arrived. These Indigenous people lived in perfect harmony with nature, moving in rhythm with the seasons to access new food sources and to find refuge from the treacherous weather that would settle over the Great Lakes in winter.

Canadian artist Alan Daniel has created a stunning visual narrative of an Algonquian hunter returning to his winter camp with a rabbit and an otter. His community greets him with enthusiasm as these animals will provide precious food and materials to make clothing and tools, some of which they will be able to trade with other indigenous peoples the following spring. If game became scarce, the community could easily re-locate to new hunting grounds by dismantling their wigwams and rolling the birch bark covering for easy transport. Also incorporated into this design are two depictions of daily Algonquian lifeÑtwo men ice fishing, and a woman preparing an animal hide.

Celebrate the rich history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Collectors of all kinds will cherish this coin on its sheer merits as a work of art that opens a privileged window on the rich cultural heritage of this great country.
