Designed by Canadian artist Cyril Assiniboine, who is Ojibwa, your coin presents his interpretation of a key scene from the Legend of Nanaboozhoo. After climbing the highest cliff to reach the Thunderbird's’ 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.

Special features:

Designed by Cyril Assiniboine, a renowned self taught Ojibwa artist and a pow wow dancer who enjoys illustrating the cultural traditions of his people.

Coins are struck from 99.99% pure silver.

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.
