This pure gold collectable coin features an Inuk woman, surrounded by inuksuit, as she tends to the traditional qulliq, an Inuit oil lamp that provides light and warmth. Like the inuksuit landmarks that guide the way, symbolizing community and guidance, the traditional oil lamp is an important symbol of Inuit culture: it represents hearth and home in the Arctic, where it embodies the strength and care provided by the women who nurture its flames.
This Arctic celebration is crafted from 100% Nunavut-sourced gold that comes from two different mines: Agnico-Eagle Mines' Meadowbank Gold Mine located near Baker Lake, Nunavut, and TMAC Resources' Doris North Mine at Hope Bay.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
