$20 Fine Silver Coin - Maple Leaf Impression (2013)
Beautiful translucent maple leaf set amongst 100 others!
For almost 300 years, the red maple leaf has symbolized Canadian identity and values. Today, Canadians are recognized worldwide by this singular image, which they faithfully sport on pins, badges and appliqués. And of course, there is the popularized Canadian flag. However, the inclusion of the maple leaf on our national flag only happened within the last century: during World War I, future prime minister Lester B. Pearson noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, the maple leaf flag was born.
