Selective gold plating lights up this re-telling of age-old legend.

Preserved and passed down by generations of storytellers, Indigenous creation stories—like the one enshrined in this 1 kg fine silver coin—explain how things came to be, so that the listener may better understand the world and their place in it. This stunning piece brings you one such story, as interpreted by Tahltan artist Alano Edzerza. Styled like a wood-carved panel, your coin’s depiction of Raven bringing light to the world is enhanced with gold-plated rays, which also serve as an inspiring metaphor for shared knowledge and the power of ancestral teachings.

A spectacular ode to Indigenous storytelling. Make this 1 kg fine silver coin a part of your collection.

How Raven Brought Light to the World

In the beginning, all the light in the universe—the stars, moon and sun—was kept inside an old man’s brush house. The Raven, who had tired of flying in the dark, desired this treasure and decided to steal it. After transforming himself into a piece of dust, the trickster was swallowed by the old man’s daughter, to be born as her son. The ravenchild grew up fast, and one day, he begged his grandfather to be allowed to hold the light. Seizing it, he took off suddenly, flying up through the smoke hole and into the dark sky. He watched as light illuminated the world for the first time, sending all the animals scurrying to the places they now call home.

  • A mix of frostings. Various frostings were combined in order to create maximum contrast between the brilliant and matte elements that stand in for light and darkness.

Shines like sunlight

A selective application of yellow gold plating deepens the storytelling and highlights the rays of light that illuminated the world for the first time. Gold plating also highlights the coin’s edge and the effigy on the obverse.

Tahltan art style

Your coin’s reverse is rendered in the traditional style of Tahltan sculptural art and features an original design by Alano Edzerza, a well-known Tahltan multimedia artist.


Raven plays a key role in a number of traditional Indigenous tales and creation stories, though each First Nations community may have its own version of a common story, like the one featured on this coin. A powerful trickster, Raven usually ends up transforming the world through his actions.

Designed by Tahltan artist Alano Edzerza, your coin’s reverse features the artist’s take on the well-known creation story of how Raven brought light to the world. The depiction is styled like Tahltan sculptural art and shows Raven in the once-dark sky after stealing light. Selective gold plating highlights the rays of light that illuminated the world for the first time; these gleaming rays also serve as an inspiring metaphor for shared knowledge and the power of ancestral teachings. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
