Together, the six leaves form a winter snowflake. The negative spaces between the leaves are the raindrops of spring.Rays emanating from this central image represent the sunshine of summer. The entire reverse is a full-color hologram, lending movement and light to this highly symbolic image.
The Interconnections series celebrates the relationship between Canada's three natural realms: land, sky, and sea. This first release, dedicated to Land, adopts a beaver as its central motif while ingeniously incorporating Canada's four seasons. This central motif is framed within a wreath of six maple leaves.The iconic importance of the maple leaf to Canada is well known, but this image also points specifically to the season of autumn, when maple leaves are at their most colorful. Arranged in a six-point pattern, the leaves also become a winter snowflake. Nestled between the leaves are six stylized raindrops, celebrating spring. Finally, rays of sunlight emanate from the image, symbolizing summer. Like the seasons themselves, each element of the design blends into the next.
The design's hologram treatment augments this sense of connection and transition. A nod to Canada's pragmatic, hard-working people, the beaver is one of Canada's oldest symbols as well as a key figure in First Nations mythologies.
Canada's exploration and settlement by Europeans was also deeply influenced by this unique animal, who drew the earliest fur traders to Canada's eastern shores. It is highly fitting that an artist representative of the traditional guardians of Vancouver Island's eastern Land of Plenty would design a series celebrating the connection between land, sea, air, and the people whose lives overlap within this environment. Gedzi Everson is a member of British Columbia's K'ómoks First Nation. Through dance, drumming, and art, Everson honors the traditions of his K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestors. He has travelled internationally as a ceremonial dancer, sharing First Nations traditions.
It was through ceremonial dance that Everson began his first serious forays into art, designing pieces for potlatches. Today, he is known for his bold, eye-catching, and thought-provoking designs that often meld traditional motifs with references from popular culture. This coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clam-shell protected by a black beauty box. Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc.
When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just artists conception drawings from the Mint.
We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting.
