2013 Canadian $25 Grandmother Moon Mask - Fine Silver Coin (Ultra-High Relief)


To many First Nations tribes, the moon is a sacred symbol. Because it brightens the darkness and rules the tides, the moon is seen as a powerful protector, grandmother, and matron of the earth. First Nations often carved masks to express the intimate relationship between nature and people—such as the Grandmother Moon, artist Richard Cochrane’s interpretation of the moon smiling down at him and onto the earth.

The Royal Canadian Mint has recreated the Grandmother Moon mask in ultra high relief to translate this beautiful hand-carved mask into a fine silver coin. Order yours today!


Features

Your coin recreates the wood grain of the Red Cedar that was used to carve the actual wooden moon mask in incredible details.
Your coin was created through a minting technique that builds the apex of the silver relief image to the extreme heights usually found only in Medallic art, where dimensional images are created through the casting processes of sculpture.
Crafted in 99.99% fine silver and GST/HST exempt.
Low mintage of only 6,000 coins.


Design

Your coin is a faithful reproduction of a wooden moon mask created in the mid-2000s by renowned Aboriginal artist Richard Cochrane. It recreates the wood grain of the old-growth Red Cedar used to carve the mask, preserves the two dark growth lines and the protective ring of eight New Zealand abalone shells. The reverse also features the word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “25 DOLLARS.”


Packaging

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with a black flock and protected by a black sleeve.
