The reverse design features images from the National Aboriginal Veterans Monument designed by Canadian artist Noel Lloyd Pinay. As on the statue itself, the image is crowned with a eagle, also known as the Thunderbird, its wings spread. This figure is the symbol of the Creator and the embodiment of the spirit of the Aboriginal people of Canada. Standing beneath the outspread wings of the Thunderbird are four human figures who, on the monument itself, gaze in the four directions of the compass: a First Nations man, an Inuit man, a Métis man and a First Nations woman. The four human figures are accompanied by the four animal spirit guides that stand guard at the four corners of the statue’s base: wolf, bear, elk, and bison. Each of these creatures has characteristics held in high esteem by Aboriginal warrior traditions. Those guided by the bear hope to be granted tremendous strength and healing power. Followers of the wolf value the attributes of intelligence, courage, and love of family. The elk, also known as the red deer or wapiti, is respected for its speed, sharp senses, and power in battle. The massive bison is a model of strength and stability.

The coin’s vast 180-millimeter diameter makes it an ideal canvas on which to capture the extraordinary detail and complexity of Canadian First Nations artist Noel Lloyd Pinay’s symbolically rich sculpture. Only 150 of these coins have been produced, each crafted from a single pour of pure molten silver. The dies were rendered from a digitally sculpted three-dimensional image that took about four weeks to complete. The cutting process, with the die on the milling machine, lasted about 100 hours. The steel model was then polished and textured by hand for two weeks. Finally, the coins were struck under pressures as high as 2,500 tons, up to 8 times.
