The Eagle: Hand-carved Western Red Cedar Kwakiutl panel, re-created in silver. Order today!

From the West Coast to your collection—this 2 oz. 99.99% pure silver selectively gold-plated coin 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 coin’s design is inspired by hand-carved Western Red Cedar panels 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.
