That is a gorgeous version of that legend. I've seen one by Silver Shield, but without all that detail. I'm not surprised you pounced on it.

Fingers crossed for Hildegard, and I hope you enjoy the Tiger and the Oak Leaf. I love mine. Anyway, you've inspired me in one regard - I've just bought the Pheli Mint version of 'Two Wolves'. There was one on sale over here so I went for it.

Which legend is that out of interest?

It is a Cherokee legend says "the wolf you feed is the wolf that wins"

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”



He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”



The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”



The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Hi @kimchi Standard Niue obverse with HM in profile and a two dollar denomination. Tray gave you a good recounting of the Cherokee legend.
