Description

The Strawberry Moon brings the first succulent berries of the year, and teaches us peace and reconciliation. This is the sixth in the Grandmother Moon series, 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 filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a tree that is bursting with the vivid colours of fresh new growth. A cluster of three strawberries appears on the left, their succulent flesh portrayed in vibrant red. Flowing lines represent the strawberry’s network of runners, each leading to a new offshoot and the potential for new fruit. The large black circle beneath the berries represents the universal life force that animates all things, and the ever-diminishing size of the particles that give them form.

  

Grandmother Moon:

For the Anishinabe people, the woodland cultures that extend from the eastern seaboard to the Great Lakes, and the headwaters of the Mackenzie River, 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 Indigenous life.
