This 2018 $3 proof fine silver coin is the eighth in the Grandmother Moon series.  After three years of growth, the thimbleberry’s branches produce the greatest bounty of fruit before dying out. But even as these branches appear lifeless, the spirit world is creating new stems to provide more berries. As one of the first plants put on Mother Earth, thimbleberry reveals the unseen force of Creation and teaches us to preserve the sacred circle of life. The coin 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 behind a tree. A thimbleberry stem appears on the left with various stages of growth: a flower, an unripe fruit, and succulent berries. A new sprout on the lower left of the stem is connected to the unripe fruit by a blackline and a rounded shape of concentric rings—signature design elements in woodland art that represent the energetic relationship between “beings”—the spirit world that animates all things and preserve the sacred circle of life.


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.
