2014 Canadian $20 The Seven Sacred Teachings: Truth - 1 oz Fine Silver & Gold-plated Coin

The turtle is one of seven animals featured in the Seven Sacred Teachings practiced by Aboriginal people throughout North America for living a full and happy life. Many groups consider the turtle to be the guardian of Mother Earth's most profound truths of nature. Its back is divided into thirteen sections, one for each of the thirteen lunar cycles that guide the seasons, and reveal the activities and changes that occur during each one; when the sap flows, when berries ripen, when to hunt, when the nights are longest.


Seventh and last coin in this new and exciting series celebrating the Seven Sacred Teachings of love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth practiced by First Nations people across Canada. It is an outstanding collection of Aboriginal wisdom and art.
Features an original design by Metis artist Nathalie Bertin, inspired by the woodland style of her Algonquin ancestry.
Powerful imagery reveals the perpetual lunar calendar that is preserved in the 13 scutes on the turtle's back.
Stunningly crafted in 99.99% pure silver by the Mint's expert engravers, accented with selective gold plating.
A limited-edition work of art with 7,000 coins available worldwide.
Perfect for anyone with an interest in First Nations art, culture and history.


Canadian Métis artist Nathalie Bertin has created a powerful image of a turtle and the perpetual lunar calendar that is preserved on its back, set against a background pattern of oak leaves that symbolize the power of the turtle's teaching's of truth.
