2011 Canadian $5 Hunter's Moon Sterling Silver & Niobium Coin


Timekeeper for the Algonquin people

In North America, the First Nations tribes that comprise the Algonquin people looked to the moon to track time. They assigned a name to every full moon to reflect the seasonal activities that accompanied each cycle. Theirs was a vast territory that extended from Lake Superior to the eastern seaboard, resulting in a variety of names throughout the Algonquin community. The buck, hunter, wolf and pink full moons represent summer, autumn, winter and spring.



• Limited to 7,500 coins worldwide.
• Hand polished! The field (flat background) has a highly hand polished mirror-like finish
• Distinct and innovative minting process: Niobium insert is struck into the core of a sterling silver coin and then selectively colored through a unique oxidization process made possible by the special properties of this metal.
• Unique maple wooden flip case houses each coin



An Algonquin hunter crouches by the light of a full moon, ready and waiting for his quarry to appear while rustcoloured hues selectively applied to the niobium core enhance this coin’s autumn theme.
