2011 1/25oz Pure Gold Coin - Orca Whale

Regular price $155.00
/

The Orca Whale, represented on this pure gold collectable fractional coin, is among the most intelligent mammals with the rare ability to pass its knowledge onto its young. It hunts in pods of up to three dozen individuals and is a spectacular sight at sea. Long revered by Indigenous communities of the Northwest Coast, the powerful Orca is increasingly threatened by pollution and habitat loss. The design is based on traditional Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit forms.

Celebrated First Nation’s artist Corrine Hunt has brought her distinctive vision of traditional Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit forms to create these special-edition collectibles. Every design is visual poetry that gives the time-honoured traditions of conservation and respect a contemporary voice with powerful lines and well-honed economy in composition.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
