Haida Gwaii is a place of astounding natural beauty, a land of ancient legends where mythical beings move about in the guise of familiar animals from our three-dimensional world.
This mesmerizing coin series portrays three of the most powerful supernatural beings from the realms of water, earth and sky. This is the third and final coin in this series showcasing Haida art and culture.
- Contains 5 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
- Comes in a maroon clamshell with a custom outer box along with a certificate of authenticity.
- Obverse: Right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Reverse: A mesmerizing image of a bear holding what appears to be a human child in his arms. The word “appears” is used here because this supernatural being is known to marry human beings, and the cubs of these unions, by removing their cloaks, can live as human beings. This is the Bear Mother Myth.
- In this design, Bear is protecting his child. His extended tongue represents communication as he shares his wisdom with his offspring under the light of a full moon, teaching him bear songs and stories as he prepares him for life without his father.
Stunningly enhanced with red and black enamel to re-create the distinctive artistic style of Haida formline imagery, hailed as one of the most popular art forms from the Pacific Northwest. A limited work of art! Only 1,500 coins are available worldwide, highly collectible!
