Royal Canadian Mint newly released fine silver
coin designed by Métis artist.
Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizen and artist Nathalie Bertin designed the newly released fine silver hologram coin entitled A story of the Northern Lights: The Great Hare by the Royal Canadian Mint.
The coin displays the Odawa legend of Nanahboozho sitting by his fire that creates the northern lights. The colourful lights are highlighted with a uniquely shaped hologram that mimics their movement in the night sky. The reverse is also engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013" and the face value of "20 DOLLARS." The coin depicts the Northern Lights with a variety of finishes to highlight elements of Canada’s northern landscape.
