Full Moons of the Algonquin 2011-12 Canada Sterling Silver & Niobium 4-Coin Set. By undertaking the technical complexities of producing a niobium coin, these Royal Canadian Mint “firsts” set the bar high for unmatched colour and lustre. Each niobium core was selectively oxidized to create a unique finish-no two coins are exactly alike! In North America, the First Nations tribes that comprise the Algonquin people looked to the moon to track time. They assigned a name to every full moon to reflect the seasonal activities that accompanied each cycle. Theirs was a vast territory that extended from Lake Superior to the eastern seaboard, resulting in a variety of names throughout the Algonquin community. The buck, hunter, wolf and pink full moons represent summer, autumn, winter and spring. Coins are encapsulated and presented in a wooden flip case, lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve. 15% in NS, NB, NL & PEI 13% in Ontario 5% in the rest of Canada.
