Its name is a proud declaration that means “our land” in Inuktitut. To mark the 20th anniversary of Nunavut’s entry into Confederation, the Royal Canadian Mint proudly presents a commemorative piece that is crafted from Nunavut-sourced gold. It features the design that graced the $2 circulation coin in 1999—the year that redrew the map of Canada.

Designed by Inuk artist Germaine Arnaktauyok, the reverse is a reproduction of the image that graced Canada’s 1999 $2 Circulation Coin, to mark the creation of the newly formed territory of Nunavut. It features an Inuk drum dancer bearing an outline map of the territory. Within the map, a traditional stone oil lamp (qulliq) is a source of warmth and security, and represents a beacon of hope for the future. Beneath the dancer is the lettering “NUNAVUT ᓄᓇᕗᑦ“ (“Nunavut” in Inuktitut).

Fittingly, this celebration of Nunavut is crafted from 100% Nunavut-sourced gold. It was sourced from two different mines—Agnico-Eagle Mines’ Meadowbank Gold Mine and TMAC Resources’ Doris North Mine—and refined in the Royal Canadian Mint's state-of-the-art facility.
