    Storytelling has long been a rich oral tradition for Aboriginal cultures.  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 Aboriginal Peoples, these tales - and the messages they convey - form deep connections to who they are, how they relate to the world, their ceremonial rituals, and everyday life.

    Often, these stories revolve around characters that possess physical and personality traits akin to humans, animals, plants, and the elements.  For the Anishinaabe, an important cultural character is Nanaboozhoo.  As a shape-shifting spirit, he teaches right from wrong through his adventures, while offering lessons on how to live in harmony with the natural world.

    Special features:

    ·        This coin was designed by Cyril Assiniboine.  He is a renowned self-taught Ojibwa artist and a pow-wow dancer who enjoys illustrating the cultural traditions of his people.  (The spelling of "Nanaboozhoo" varies among bands of the Ojibwa.  "Winaboozhoo" is found among the Lake Superior Chippewa bands.  Chippewa is an Anglicized variation of the tribal designation: Ojibwe, which also has the variant spelling, Ojibwa.  "The Walleye War" by Larry Nesper provides a wealth of information about the Lake Superior Chippewa Bands and their struggle for Ojibwe spearfishing and Treaty Rights in late 20th Century Wisconsin.)

    ·        This coin is 99.99% pure silver with gold-plating!  The gold plating continues around the serrated edge!

    ·        Each coin in this unique new series pays homage to the time-honored cultural tradition of Aboriginal storytelling through its depictions of the beloved Ojibwa Legend of Nanaboozhoo.

    ·        Limited worldwide mintage of only 8,500 coins.


    Designed by Canadian artist Cyril Assiniboine, who is Ojibwa, this coin presents his interpretation of a key scene from the Legend of Nanaboozhoo.  After climbing the highest cliff to reach the Thunderbirds’ nest, Nanaboozhoo has incurred the horrible wrath of these majestic birds by plucking feathers from their young to strengthen his arrow.  The imposing figure of one Thunderbird looms large in the background as it closes in on Nanaboozhoo, with lightning crackling from its eyes and thunder rolling from its beak.  A full-face view of Nanaboozhoo allows for his traditional Western Ojibwa dress to be seen in greater detail.
