Raspberry Moon brings a time of great change as the raspberry's flowers turn to fruit, and teach us to be gentle and kind. It's the seventh teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishinaabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother Earth's children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom.

In July, raspberries begin to ripen, and if we tear them from their branches, we will feel the sting of the thorns. Raspberries must be harvested with gentleness. In doing so, we honour the plant and ensure it continues to flourish. Raspberry Moon teaches us to raise our family the same way. Children thrive when treated with loving kindness. And life will encounter fewer barbs.

Grandmother Moon is always ready to share her loving wisdom, and this captivating coin series with 13 original woodland designs, brings you her life teachings. The Anishinaabe people view every aspect of nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives. And although variations do exist due to geography and climate, Grandmother Moon is a central figure, her kind and gentle ways always a common thread.

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.

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a tree at the height of its lush summertime growth. A cluster of four raspberries appears on the left, their succulent flesh portrayed in vibrant red. Black, sliver-like thorns protect the plant's fresh new blooms that are illustrated with a series of concentric round shapes in black, green and red. These vibrantly coloured shapes, and those on the leaves, represent the spirit world, the universal life force that lies within and animates all things.

7th issue in this captivating series of original woodland designs illustrating the 13 teachings from Grandmother Moon according to Anishinaabe tradition.
