Second coin in beautiful maple leaf with colour series!

From backpackers in Berlin to peacekeepers in Pakistan, Canadians are immediately identifiable by a singular image they faithfully sport on pins, badges, and appliqués: the red maple leaf.

This lyrical cipher has symbolized Canada and Canadians for nearly two hundred years. Historians generally recognize the adoption of the maple leaf by Quebec's Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Montreal in 1836 as the first official use of the symbol to represent an element of Canadian culture.

The symbol was soon popularized in print, song, and in the small markers—such as lapel pins—with which Canadian residents of various origins honoured their homelands. The English had their roses, the Scots their thistle, the Irish their shamrocks, and the French their fleur-de-lis—and native-born Canadians quickly chose the prosaic maple leaf.

The idea of including the maple leaf on Canada's national flag took root with Lester B. Pearson in World War I, when he noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, in 1965, under his leadership as prime minister, Canada's famous red-and-white maple leaf flag was born. 

In addition to the maple leaf's presence on various provincial flags and coats of arms, the country's coinage has featured maple leaves, wreaths, and boughs in various forms for most of Canada's history. In fact, the maple leaf was present on all Canadian coins from 1876 to 1901. Since that time, it has always appeared on Canadian pennies until 2012.

    Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Maple Leaf Impression - Mintage: 7500 (2014):

    I knew I had to have this coin as soon as I looked at it. I don't know what it was, the emerald green Maple leaf stood out to me. Perhaps it reminded me of Lucky Charms cereal from when I was a kid, and still endulge it now fro time to time. It really is an amazing coin to look at, almost hypnotic in a way, changes it up from the usual red maple leaf, the green is amazing, whether for a gift or for yourself. An absolute collectors piece for sure, and with a limited montage of 7500, it is guaranteed to be a sought after coin in the tears to come. Keep up the great work RCM!

          Last year i purchased the red coin. I was surprised at the quality of the coin, it met and even surpassed my expectations (which were already quite high). Im sure this coin will have the same wow factor. a touch pricey for the weight and technology involved but the series is a beautiful addition to my collection.

                Excellent design and colouring. The coin looks a lot better in reality then what is pictured. Bought the Red version last year and I hope that the RCM will continue this coin tradition with different colours very year.
