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!Native American legends have been told for centuries. One of the most popular is the Kwakwaka’wakw legend of a man who ventured into the forest and came across a magical frog as large as a man. Copper shone from its mouth, and despite its ability to suddenly disappear, the frog allowed the man to vanquish it. With great effort, the man rolled the frog over and found a stack of copper shields underneath - a luxury reserved for the highest-ranking chiefs, who would display them at potlatches and use them to settle disputes. He returned to his village and was lauded for his wealth and prestige.

This coin is a brilliantly executed work of art that portrays the frog in the distinctive formline style of the Pacific Northwest Indian tribes, complete with copper shield engraved on its tongue - the gift of wealth.
