Mintage of only 7,500 coins!
This coin is from the 2011 Full Moon series of .925 sterling Silver and niobium $5 bimetal coins and is among the first of its kind from the Royal Canadian Mint! The reverse design features an orange niobium North American Indian brave, armed with spear, creeping stealthily in front of the full Hunter's Moon of October, which appears huge and low on the horizon. The obverse shows Susanna Blunt's profile of Queen Elizabeth II of England. This highly collectible coin is attractively housed in the original wooden display case of issue. The included certificate of authenticity is numbered and tells the tale of the full Hunter's Moon.
In North America, the First Nations tribes that comprise the Algonquin people looked to the moon to track time. They assigned a name to every full moon to reflect the seasonal activities that accompanied each cycle. Theirs was a vast territory that extended from Lake Superior to the eastern seaboard, resulting in a variety of names throughout the Algonquin community.
