Grandmother_Moon_Mask_Red_Cedar_Carving_by_Native_American_Artist_Richard_Cochrane quarter turn profile side viewAn Original Work of Art
Renowned Canadian artist Andy Everson has created this coin’s bold and unique representation of a Native American Singing Moon Mask, painstakingly rendered in exquisite detail and ultra high, medallic relief through traditional engraving techniques and vibrant colored enamel. The moon lights up the night sky as it sends its melodic voice in all four directions as depicted by the four oblong shapes positioned along its circumference. In response, the stars twinkle and dance, as represented by the dots and round contours between the oblong shapes. Every curve and detail is imbued with the rich artistic traditions of the K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw Native American in British Columbia.

Ancient Symbol of Sacred Protection
Grandmother_Moon_Mask_Red_Cedar_Carving_by_Native_American_Artist_Richard_Cochrane full on front viewA full moon inspires awe and wonder in all those who gaze at it. Long before recorded history, cultures around the world were charting the moon’s path across the night sky. Its perpetual waxing and waning, vanishing and reappearing, marked the passage of time - not clock time, but the cycles of life; the ebb and flow of the sea; the birth, maturation and migration of animals; the sprouting of new plants and the scattering of seeds.

Unlike the sun, Grandmother Moon does not blaze her power upon the earth. It is subtle, more receptive and reflective. The moon brightens the darkness and is therefore a powerful guide or protector. As the force that rules the tides, it is strongly linked to water. The moon is a sacred symbol that appears in countless Native American. These ancient cultures often carved masks to express the intimate relationship between the invisible forces and spirits above, as well as the people, animals, plants, rocks and earth below.

Investment Note

The Singing Moon Mask $25 Pure Silver Proof Set has a mintage limit of only 3,000 and is certain to be popular, with its high relief format and multiple styles of proof finish. Given this and its Native American theme, we believe that this will be a very scarce issue, highly sought after by collectors in the future.

This photo shows the ultra high relief nature of the 2008 $15 Silver Proof featuring Victoria from CanadaTechnical Note
The Royal Canadian Mint is applying its expertise in the design, engraving and striking of medals and medallic art to these coins, which feature a Native American ceremonial mask struck in ultra high medallic relief. Each planchet or blank is individually hand-polished before it is quadruple-struck. The edge of the coin is plain, not reeded, unlike most Canadian commemorative and collector coins, in keeping with its medallic nature. Slight differences in the frosted cameo relief and proof-like fields are normal for this high-relief striking process, just as they are with high relief medals.
