Honours the vision quest that began in the fall! Order today!

Bear Moon teaches us patience and to honour the vision quest that began in the fall. It's the second teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishnabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth's children and lights up their paths with her gentle wisdom.

In February, the bear may come out of hibernation after a long slumber, or a she-bear may emerge with her cubs. Months earlier, both were able to see beyond the darkening days of autumn, and never doubted that life would return to the forest. Bear teaches us to see beyond "what is," and to trust in our vision and dreams. Like the bear, there is no need to growl loudly and dominate others to get what we want. There is far more power in silent confidence and steadily moving toward our goals.

An ideal coin for someone who enjoys Indigenous art. Order today!

Design:

Algonquin artist Frank Polson creates a captivating image of a full moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a leafless tree. To the left, a bear stands on its hind legs like a human as it stretches after its long hibernation and reaches for its dreams. The use of bold lines, and the insertion of vivid colour within black areas as if to reveal what lies within, is a signature design element in woodland art.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
