Variations of dreamcatchers are representative of cultures across each Canadian province, but they all have the same intention: to trap bad dreams and thoughts, and let good dreams pass through the hole at the web’s center, and into the mind of the dreamer. Each coin unites First Nations tradition with modern-day technology: a dreamcatcher set against a shiny holographic field. Each coin is a unique work of art! Rare theme brings together ancient First Nations heritage and modern technology. This amazing coin combines two technologies: a colored central image and a hologram background.

Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They “cherry-pick” the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
