2011 Silver & Niobium Canadian $5 Full Hunter's Moon (W/Box&CoA)

Product Details

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.

    Comments about 2011 Silver & Niobium Canadian $5 Full Hunter's Moon (W/Box&CoA):

    Raw coins are always a roll of the dice. In this case, the Royal Canadian Mint falls short in production quality. I've purchased examples directly from both RCM and APMEX. None have graded 70, and some weren't worth grading at all because they were marginal 69.

    Another aspect making the quality issue harder to overlook is the small size in execution of these designs. You would think the petite footprint would make perfection easier to achieve. Unfortunately, that correlation doesn't seem to apply here.

    I'm a big fan of silver/niobium coins (particularly those from the Austrian Mint) but sadly this series falls short in size, quality, and value.
