The maple tree has long been associated with the Canadian identity. For centuries, it has provided valuable lumber and syrup, while its presence in Canada's forests adds to the year-round beauty of the landscape. The symbolic value of its leaves is immeasurable, for a maple leaf appears on Canada's flag and in its songs, poetry and literature. The maple is deeply rooted in the sense of national pride and identity shared by Canadians—a sentiment that is beautifully celebrated in an outstanding platinum coin that features selective dual plating!

A magnificent platinum coin that pays tribute to a national icon with three maple leaves—each from a different species that is native to Canada! Order yours today!

Special features:
  • FEATURES PINK AND GOLD SELECTIVE PLATING! In the centre is an engraved silver maple leaf; on the left is a red maple leaf, with pink gold plating that is reminiscent of its crimson autumn foliage; on the right is a sugar maple leaf, known for autumnal hues of gold that are represented by yellow gold plating.
  • LAST YEAR'S ISSUE SOLD OUT! Don't be disappointed, hurry and order yours today!
  • 99.95% PURE PLATINUM!
  • Your coin has a limited mintage of only 250 coins worldwide and is GST/HST exempt.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Lilyane Coulombe, your coin features a stunning design that celebrates Canada's mighty maples. Meticulous engraving recreates each leaf in astounding detail, with deeply cut lobes and serrated edges that add a sense of texture and depth. The leafy trio is representative of three maple species that are native to Canada, with selective gold plating to convey their most famous colours. In the centre is an engraved silver maple leaf; on the left is a red maple leaf, with pink gold plating that is reminiscent of its crimson autumn foliage; on the right is a sugar maple leaf, known for autumnal hues of gold that are represented by yellow gold plating.

Did you know…
  • The sugar maple is named for the sweet sap it yields in late winter/early spring, when it is boiled to make maple syrup.
  • The silver maple gets its name for the silvery underside of its leaves in the summer.
  • The red maple is named for the red colour of its leaves in autumn; the sugar maple leaf will either be yellow, orange or red, while the silver maple is rarely red—most often yellow or rusty brown.
  • How can you identify each maple species? Look at the shape of their leaves: the red maple leaf has sharp, irregular teeth and narrow V-shaped valleys between its three pointy lobes; the sugar maple leaf is larger, with fewer teeth and curvier valleys between its lobes; the silver maple leaf's five lobes are narrower than other maple species, with deep, narrow notches.

Packaging:

Your coin comes elegantly presented in a red wood lacquered case with a custom black beauty box.

      I'm a collector, first and foremost, of beautiful looking coins. The fact that mintage is low and that it is a rare/uncommon issue, is only a bonus! Thank RCM!

          A:

          Hi Mymi,

          This coin is 30mm. At this time we do not sell pendant kits for 30mm coins. We only sell ones for 27mm coins. You may find what you're looking for on www.bezel.com. Hope this helps.
