2013 Canadian $5 Tradition of Hunting: Bison - Fine Silver Coin

Bison have sustained Canada’s Aboriginal peoples for thousands of years. For young boys, joining the hunt for the first time was a celebrated milestone and rite of passage. One can only imagine the excitement they must have felt as they listened to spellbinding stories of hunts past, their impatient eagerness as they spent hours making arrows, an exercise designed to teach patience and discipline—and to foster the understanding that it takes a carefully crafted arrow and a focused mind and eye to hit the mark. Finally, nature would signal that the time had come, and with bellies pressed against the ground, the boys’ first hunt would begin.

Your coin features a beautiful vignette of the bison hunt with an unexpected twist—a sacred white bison in the herd. Share the legends, the wisdom and the history of this ancient tradition with this must-have coin. Order yours today!
