A totem pole before coastal mountains.
CANADA BRITISH COLUMBIA
Engraver: Stephen Trenka
The reverse shows the design of a Northwest Coast First Nations totem pole with mountains in the background. An apocryphal but widely circulated story holds that the top element in the pole is Raven, used by some First Nations to symbolize death. As a result, it was rumored that those First Nations disliked the dollars, causing them to be called "DEATH DOLLARS." However, the figure with upright ears, a distinct nose, long claws, and what may be a tongue sticking out is not Raven, but more likely Bear, beneath her her cub. This motif appears on many totem poles. Further, neither Bear nor Raven is associated with death; the former is a common clan-owned crest, the latter is a celebrated Trickster and Creator figure central to hundreds of stories of the peoples of the Northwest Coast.
