Landsharkz are proud to present the 2010 British Columbia geocoin.
Sgang Gwaay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on Haida Gwaii on BC's west coast.
This is the fifth and final coin in a 5 coin series of British Columbia coins. This green-ringed coin is 45mm x 3.5mm 2D and 3D and displays a Golden Eagle on the front and a Haida Gwaii (islands of the people) scene with the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve village of SGang Gwaay on the shore on the obverse.
This is Haida village that famed BC painter Emily Carr made famous in her paintings of her visits to what was then the Queen Charlotte Islands. The coin is polished nickel with imitation hard enamel and soft enamel paint. This coin has a custom icon and is trackable on geocaching.com.
Thank you once again to our friend Tom Spetter (www.cyandesign.ca) for creation of the lovely First Nation art and to local BC artist Tracy Courtemanche for creating the SGang Gwaay scene.
