2013 Canada $5 Contemporary Aboriginal Art - Ice Fishing Father (No Tax)

Second coin in a new series featuring contemporary aboriginal art incorporated in a colorful design using niobium technology.

This coin is certified to be 99.99% fine silver with a diameter of 28 millimetres and a metal weight of 8.5 grams.

It features an innovative minting process that incorporates a niobium insert struck into the coin's silver core. The niobium is selectively coloured using a unique oxidization process produced naturally by niobium's distinct properties. The coin's reverse design is by Inuit artist Ulaayu Pilurtuut. Pilurtuut's design shows a joyous fisherman celebrating his latest catch. In the background stands the fisherman's protective igloo. Rendered in a contemporary Inuit style, it captures the lighthearted spirit and humour commonly associated with this ancient practice.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
