    "Storytelling has long been a rich oral tradition for Aboriginal cultures," a description states on the Royal Canadian Mint website. "It is said that from the first snowfall to the first clap of thunder, elders impart history, traditions and life lessons to the younger generation through rich narratives filled with allegories and imagery."

    "For the Anishinaabe, an important cultural character is Nanaboozhoo; as a shapeshifting spirit, he teaches right from wrong through his adventures while offering lessons on how to live in harmony with the natural world."


    A celebration of the time-honoured tradition of Aboriginal storytelling through a series of beautifully detailed coins that depict a beloved Ojibwa tale: the legend of Nanaboozhoo.

    Each coin in this unique new series pays homage to the time-honoured cultural tradition of Aboriginal storytelling through its artistic representation of the beloved Ojibwa legend of Nanaboozhoo.

    This coin captures a pivotal scene within the story, in which the hero is pursued by angry Thunderbirds after he has taken feathers from their young.

    The intricately detailed design exemplifies the Royal Canadian Mint’s world-class artistry and craftsmanship.

    An excellent gift for collectors and appreciators of First Nations folklore!


    A key scene from the legend of Nanaboozhoo is depicted in a reverse image designed by Canadian artist Cyril Assiniboine, who is Ojibwa. Nanaboozhoo has climbed the highest cliff to get to the Thunderbirds’ nest, where he has plucked feathers from the young birds (seen in the upper right side of the image). But the fully grown Thunderbirds have since returned to the nest and are angered by Nanaboozhoo’s actions. With lightning flashing from a Thunderbird’s eye and thunder rolling from its beak, Nanaboozhoo quickly flees from the Thunderbird’s wrath while clutching the feather-adorned arrow in his right hand.
