Germaine Arnaktauyok Inuit Art Coin

Since the posting of the Arctic Inuit Art On Coins article, I have been asked whether Free Spirit Gallery Inuit Art sells these coins or not, particularly the Inuit drum dancer coin commemorating the creation of Nunavut by Germaine Arnaktauyok . Our online gallery doesn't deal with coins but I have seen some of these Inuit art coins as well as Canadian Native art coins for sale on websites that specialize in collector coins. The Royal Canadian Mint is the original source of all these Canadian coins so they would also be a logical contact.

The 1999 $2 Canadian coin with Germaine's design is actually quite common up here in Canada as it is widely circulated. I currently have a few in my pocket change right now. Visitors to Canada should really have little problems getting one while they are up here during shopping as receiving one in change would be very likely especially during an stay of several days. This particular coin is shown below.
