Product Description

This stunning original work of art recounts one of the best-known legends of the Pacific Northwest, minted in solid gold with selective color and a proof finish that enhances the dramatic Native American design!

Investment Opportunity!This breathtaking work of art recounts one of the best-known legends of the Pacific Northwest - how Raven brought light to the world. It’s a story that has been told over thousands of years and while regional variations do exist, this exceptional masterpiece captures the climatic moment when Raven is in possession of the light. The Chief of the Heavens keeps the daylight ball in a box. The Raven tricks him, takes the luminous ball, and flies skyward. The ball breaks apart, creating the moon, the stars, and the sun. No other metal captures the essence of light like gold, and this spectacular gold coin has been selectively colored to create dramatic contrast between Raven’s black plumage and the shining ball.

An Original Work of Art - By A Native American Artist!
K’ómoks and Kwakwa ka 'wakw artist Andy Everson has combined classic formline shapes and modern graphic elements to create a powerful portrait of raven holding the light in its beak. Two side profiles come together to form a frontal view of raven’s face, while its wings sweep down along the outer edges of the coin to cradle the shining ball of light, its luminescence radiating outward in all directions.
