25 CENT QUARTER
SPECIAL FIRST RELEASES BLUE LABELNGC MS67
This auction includes a NGC certified First Releases Life in the North (Orca Whale) Quarter from the Canadian Royal Mint in MS67 condition. � Designed by renowned Inuit artist Tim Pitsiulak, your coin includes a beautifully detailed design that combines animal and human imagery. A traditional whaling boat and three kayaks wrap around the image along the rim to depict a traditional bowhead whale hunt. Two beluga whales swim alongside a bowhead whale – animals that have long been a source of inspiration to the artist. The bowhead is adorned with several elements drawn from the Inuit culture. To honour the Tuniit people who first crossed the Bering Strait from Siberia, Dorset ivory masks adorn the bowhead’s lower jaw and its back. A Thule ivory comb lies across the top of the whale’s head, representing the Inuit expansion across Canada. The pattern on the whale’s side mimics the walls of an igloo, while the amauti design that graces the whale’s tale symbolises the clothing worn by Inuit women
