Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo your coin depicts a young girl on a tree swing in a grand old maple tree. In the lower left segment of the image, a young girl with pigtails holds merrily onto the two ropes holding her board swing, smiling gaily down at the viewer, who sees the scene from the point of view of someone looking up from below. The swing's ropes are tied to a thick, sturdy bough, leading the view upwards through the dense canopy of the iconic sugar maple. The scene is framed on the lower right side of the image by a group of maple leaves rooted close to the ground.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
