Description

Stunning coins available in 99.99% pure silver.
Awesome power at sea.
The Orca Whale 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 First Nations communities of the Northwest Coast, the powerful Orca is increasingly threatened by pollution and habitat loss.

Express your passion for the Canadian wilderness—treasures to cherish and preserve.

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.

2011 is the International Year of Forests—a time to reflect on the significant role the wilderness plays in reducing global warming and preserving the earth’s environmental balance.
