2020 Canadian $10 An Inuk and a Qulliq - 1/20 oz Pure Gold Coin

Meet the newest addition to our range of gold collector coins: a 1/20 oz. pure gold piece that is the perfect mix of art, allure, and affordability. The qulliq on this coin is the hopeful light that burns bright on a dark night — the light that warms the mind, body and spirit. Like the inuksuit landmarks that guide the way, the traditional oil lamp is an important symbol of Inuit culture: it represents hearth and home in the Arctic, where it embodies the strength and care provided by the women who nurture its flames.

An affordable way to add a pure gold piece of the Arctic to your collection. Order today!


ARCTIC GOLD: This Arctic celebration is crafted from 100% Nunavut-sourced gold that comes from two different mines: Agnico-Eagle Mines' Meadowbank Gold Mine located near Baker Lake, Nunavut, and TMAC Resources' Doris North Mine at Hope Bay.
A PROUD CULTURAL CELEBRATION: The Inuit-inspired design is a proud statement on cultural diversity in Canada and features deeply symbolic elements that are important expressions of Inuit identity.
FOR VALUE-MINDED COLLECTORS: The 2018 Symbols of the North and the 2019 20th Anniversary of Nunavut coins were both struck on a thinner (but larger) blank for greater affordability. For 2020, we've taken it one step further by introducing one of the year's most affordable 99.99% pure gold offerings: a 1/20 oz. coin.
NEW SIZE: This is the first time we've struck a stand-alone collector coin on a 1/20 oz. gold blank—a size that, until now, was only available with bullion products or as part of a fractional set.
LOW MINTAGE: Only 4,000 coins will be made availabl worldwide.
A GREAT ADDITION: Ideally priced and impeccably crafted, this coin is the perfect new addition to any gold- or Arctic-themed collection.


The reverse design by Inuk artist Ulaayu Pilurtuut is a contemporary-styled celebration of Inuit culture, identity, and way of life. Surrounded by inuksuit that symbolize community and guidance, the Inuk woman at the centre of the image tends to the traditional qulliq, an Inuit oil lamp that provides light and warmth. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
