Description

Meet the newest addition to the range of gold collector coins: a 1/20 oz. pure gold piece that is the perfect mix of art, allure, and affordability. The qulliq on this coin is the hopeful light that burns bright on a dark night — the light that warms the mind, body and spirit. Like the inuksuit landmarks that guide the way, the traditional oil lamp is an important symbol of Inuit culture: it represents hearth and home in the Arctic, where it embodies the strength and care provided by the women who nurture its flames.

The reverse design by Inuk artist Ulaayu Pilurtuut is a contemporary-styled celebration of Inuit culture, identity, and way of life. Surrounded by inuksuit that symbolize community and guidance, the Inuk woman at the centre of the image tends to the traditional qulliq, an Inuit oil lamp that provides light and warmth. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
