An Inukshuk is an enduring Inuit tradition and a proud symbol of the Canadian North. These sculptures of unworked stone form distinctive monuments, which were traditionally used to communicate direction for hunting or navigation along difficult terrain, or to warn of potential dangers ahead; wherever there are vast, open spaces, an Inukshuk says "I was here" or "You are on the right path" to those who may be far from home. Building an Inukshuk, whether small or large, is a selfless act that leaves a sign for travellers; one that offers meaning and guidance, and ultimately mirrors the community spirit for which Canadians are renowned. As such, this timeless, spiritual symbol of the Arctic and its people has become a universal symbol for hope and friendship, with meaning and history that are a fundamental part of our Canadian values.

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin features magnificent reverse gold plating, which creates a striking gold background and contrasts beautifully with the silver coin's engraved elements. The Inukshuk on the reverse is of the Innunguaq variety, with a "human-like" shape created by stacking multiple stones of different sizes, from large flat boulders that form the arms to the rounded boulders that form the legs and head. Meticulous engraving gives the stones a remarkable life-like quality, while the silver of the coin gives it a majestic, awe-inspiring shine. The gold-plated obverse features the silver effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, with an added "P" mark to indicate the plated nature of the coin.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
