Product Description

Get the 13th and final release in this ongoing, popular Native American series, Thirteen Teachings from Grandmother Moon! The Big Spirit Moon for December showcases an Indian woman cradling an infant on this beautiful, affordable full color pure silver proof coin!

Grandmother Moon is always ready to share her loving wisdom. This captivating Native American coin series brings you her life teachings with thirteen original woodland Indian designs. Canada’s indigenous peoples view every aspect of nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives. Although variations do exist due to geography and climate, Grandmother Moon is a central figure in their mythos, her kind and gentle ways always a common thread.

For the Anishnabe people, the woodland cultures that extend from the eastern seaboard to the Great Lakes, and the headwaters of the Mackenzie River, Grandmother Moon is ever-present, making 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth’s children and lights up their paths. Every full moon brings a new teaching that is illustrated in each coin design to foster understanding and respect for all of Earth’s creatures - each a stunning work of art with a unique insight into Native American life!

Availability Note - Although announced in November, the Royal Canadian Mint considers this coin a December 2018 New Release, and indicates that it will not be available before December at the earliest. This coin will delay any order on which it is included.

A Native American Inuit Drum Dance PerformerArtwork by a Native American Artist!
Native American Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon behind a leafless tree. A woman stands to the left cradling an infant in her arm that is being purified by a feather overhead. The healing energy of the universe—the teachings, songs and stories—that are given to children by their mothers and grandmothers—flows from the feather to the child with a luminescent glow that bathes the pair in the ethereal beauty of moonlight. The vibrantly colored shapes and dark flowing lines within the composition are signature design elements in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that connects and animates all things.

Big Spirit Moon is a time to reflect upon the healing powers of the universe and create our own vision of the truth. It’s the thirteenth teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishinaabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother Earth’s children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom. The 13th moon marks the beginning of a long spiritual journey to contemplate the universal knowledge we have received, and how to apply it to our individual roles and life circumstances. Like the mother and her child that is being purified by a feather, each one of us must discover our personal truth to live our greatest ideal for the benefit of our family and community.
