An innovative take on a familiar Canadian icon—the maple leaf! Order today!

Basking in the golden glow of a fading sunset, an autumn landscape provides the perfect natural setting to showcase the most recognizable Canadian emblem of all: the mighty maple leaf. In keeping with the low poly art style, individual polygons come together to form the trees, while the use of bold colour variants conveys the colourful splendour of the fall foliage as two maple leaves fall gently onto the river's surface.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Calder Moore, your coin features an artistic representation of a Canadian forest in autumn, which provides a natural setting for Canada's most famous emblem: the maple leaf. Geometry, technology and art intersect as the entirety of the image is presented in a low poly art style, with multiple polygon shapes coming together to form the mix of coniferous and deciduous trees on both sides of the river. A rich colour gradient in the background recreates the fading sunset as it casts a golden glow on the fall foliage, while the use of rich colour variants throughout the landscape alters our perception of shadow and light. The eye is naturally drawn to the two engraved maple leaves in the foreground, where extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques showcase the individual polygons within each form. The geometric lines and corners lend themselves beautifully to recreating the maple leaf's stem and serrated edges, as a gentle breeze brings both leaves tumbling onto the water's surface to float above the rocky riverbed.

Packaging:

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

                      LOVE this coin and the series. This coin is by far the best in the series. I love the facets and the way it stands out. Bravo to the designers, I would highly recommend this coin. It is a beautiful set, and a definitively wonderful and playful display of Canada's everyday circulation coinage.

                            The entire "Geometry" set has been fantastic and this is the best coin yet.
                            I can't believe these aren't selling out in a day.
