This 2018 $3 proof fine silver coin is the eleventh in the Grandmother Moon series.  Freezing Moon reminds us to prepare for the spiritual path that lies ahead during this season of fasting. The coin is dated 2018 with a $3 denomination and weighs just over one quarter ounce of pure silver.  Adding to its collectability, the mintage is extremely limited to just 4,000.  As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon behind a leafless tree. A human figure stands to the left, arms outstretched, holding a drumstick and drum to the Star Nation. The drum doubles as a medicine wheel to represent the sacred teachings that are being expressed through song. The vibrantly coloured shapes within the figure are a signature design element in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that animates all things.


Grandmother Moon:

For the Anishnaabe people, Grandmother Moon is ever-present, making 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth's children and lights up their paths. Every moon brings a new teaching that is illustrated in each coin design to foster understanding and respect for all of Earth's creatures-a stunning work of art with a unique insight into the Anishinaabe way of life. 

In November, the Star Nation is closest to Earth, and all the creature beings prepare for the lean winter ahead. People gather around the elders to learn the sacred songs and teachings that will sustain them. Freezing Moon is an important time of sharing that strengthens our connection to each other and to Creation. It nourishes our spiritual and physical wellbeing, so we can endure.
