Courage is one of the lessons in the Seven Sacred Teachings practiced by Indigenous people throughout North America for a full and happy life. This fine silver collectable coin with gold plating embodies this sacred teaching. Although the bear is by nature quite gentle and mild, and often more afraid of us than we are of it, it is capable of intense ferocity and rage should her cubs be threatened. This exemplifies the concept of courage in the face of the unknown, as the bear overcomes her own timid nature with mental and moral strength to protect her children. This is a lesson to us as humans that our great challenges and fears must be met with the same vigour and intensity as a mother bear defending her cubs.
