• Fifth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s unique hologram maple series, celebrating Chinese Canadian history and traditions.
• Your coin features unique selective hologram with two colourful maple leaves.

• Low mintage of 8,888 coins worldwide—reflecting the Chinese cultural importance of the number “8” as a symbol of good fortune.
Your coin is designed by Canadian artist Simon Ng and features a striking design of an elephant in traditional dressing. Its riding blanket bears a central medallion containing a hologram of two maple leaves. Every detail of your coin is symbolic: the elephant’s long coiled trunk reflects longevity; and its ear, decorated with a chrysanthemum in full bloom, depicts ease and good fortune. Engraved beneath the animal’s belly are the Chinese characters for “peace.” Each type of flower engraved on your coin—for example, on the vase—blooms at a different time in a year. As such, your coin’s motif is designed to extend a blessing of peace throughout the year. Your coin is also engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “15 DOLLARS.”
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve.
