2014 Canada $20 Nanaboozhoo & the Thunderbird's Nest Fine Silver (No Tax)

A celebration of the time-honoured tradition of Aboriginal storytelling through a series of beautifully detailed coins that depict a beloved Ojibwa tale: the Legend of Nanaboozhoo.

Designed by Canadian artist Cyril Assiniboine, who is Ojibwa, the reverse image is an artistic depiction of the Legend of Nanaboozhoo. In the foreground, a side profile of Nanaboozhoo (facing left) shows the cultural hero in flight. He is wearing a traditional Western Ojibwa dress and in his right hand, a wooden arrow is already adorned with the feathers he has snatched from the Thunderbirds. In the background, an adult Thunderbird soars on outstretched wings as he angrily pursues Nanaboozhoo.
