To recognize Kaska art and the Kaska Nation, the Yukon Mint™ Corporation will produce an ongoing series of gold coins with annual contests ‘My Kaska Nation’ where Kaska artists are asked to submit designs. The winning design then gets transformed into a gold coin. The gold coins will be minted in a variety of sizes that could range from ¼ ounce to 10 ounces.
The First Design Contest took place in 2017 and the Winner was Kaska artist Ms. Miranda Lane with her submission: True North Moose. The Company held a ceremony to unveil and celebrate her winning design on May 30, 2018.
