From the West Coast to your collection—this 2 oz. 99.99% pure silver selectively gold- plated coin from the Royal Canadian Mint pays homage to the rich artistic heritage of the Kwakiutl (Tsaxis) peoples of the Kwakwaka’wakw nation by showcasing a contemporary work of art that is rooted in traditional knowledge.

The design is inspired by a hand-carved Western Red Cedar panel by Kwakiutl artist Jason Henry Hunt, including the wood-grain pattern and rope frame adorning both sides of this coin. Rendered in the Northwest Coast formline style and selectively plated with yellow gold on this coin, the carved work inspires awe for the high-flying Eagle, as he hunts in the skies above the Pacific Ocean, home of the Orca.

Coin Highlights:

  •  Crafted in 2 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, with selective gold plating highlighting the formline design style that is characteristic of Northwest Coast art.
  • On both the reverse and obverse, an engraved wood-grain pattern fills the field and a rope frames each design, mimicking the look of a Kwakiutl wood panel.
  • No easy feat: A decorative rim resembling a cedar bark rope frame is engraved on both sides of the coin.
  • Artist Jason Henry Hunt comes from a long line of internationally renowned Kwakiutl carvers and artists who have been instrumental in the survival and resurgence of Kwakiutl art.

2024 $30 Fine Silver Coin - The Hunter has a limited mintage of 4,500 coins.
