2017 Canadian $10 Celebrating Canada's 150th: Drum Dancing - 1/2 oz Fine Silver Coin

 

Beneath the North Star (Niqirtsuituq) in the sky and on the territorial flag, Nunavut's unspoiled wilderness casts a spell with its promise of solitude. Here where the boreal forest transitions to tundra and the polar desert of the Arctic Archipelago, one moves to the rhythm of the land rather than measured time…

The Celebrating Canada's 150th series concludes its collectible cross-country journey in Canada's youngest territory, Nunavut, which was founded on April 1, 1999. In this arctic wonderland steeped in Inuit culture, the photo-like design pays tribute to the timeless traditions of the Nunnavummiut.

A beautiful addition to your Canadiana coin display!

Design

Based on a photograph by Canadian photographer Michelle Valberg, the reverse features vibrant colour over detailed engraving that captures an Inuit drum dance on Devon Island, Nunavut. Artist Mathew Nuqingaq of Iqaluit, Nunavut, is dressed in traditional clothing as he lifts up a large frame drum (a qilaut) while performing a traditional song. The sun adds a vibrancy to the Arctic landscape behind him, where the golden colours of the tundra stand out beneath the clear blue sky. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
