Description
 
2010 The Sun Olympic $1 Commemorative Coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint.

HANDCRAFTED ARTISTRY! The design has been crafted in ultra-high relief, an exceptional level of sculpting that requires significant hand crafting and polishing. Slight inconsistencies in the quality of the surface are normal for this ultra-high relief process.
- Second ever proof dollar struck in the ultra high relief long associated with ancient medallic art.

Since time immemorial, the sun has been a powerful symbol for people throughout the world. It has also been a cornerstone in the culture of Canada's many First Nations communities, representing life, abundance, healing and peace. The sun was carved on masks and totem poles and is the symbol that currently crowns the world's tallest totem located in Alert Bay (British Columbia).

One First Nations legend recounts how Raven released the sun from a box. People believed the Sun Chief could be reached by climbing a chain of arrows, and that he descended from the sky each day by sliding down the sun's long rays
