Comox Valley artist Andy Everson will be on hand Wednesday, Nov. 26 at Canada Post Comox for a signing of the Royal Canadian Mint three-coin gold series which he designed.

The first is a pure gold coin bearing the image of a beaver, dedicated to the theme of land. The second coin bears a thunderbird, representing air. The third shows a whale, symbolic of the sea.

The post office has ordered some new coin sets soon to be available for purchase.

Everson — a K’ómoks First Nation drummer and ceremonial dancer — will sign certificates of those who have purchased a coin.

The signing takes place from 10-11 a.m. The post office is at 1812 Comox Ave.
