A FIRST! A selectively gold-plated, pure silver piedfort coin! Order today!

The beaver and the maple leaf are the defining images of a nation: one speaks of the past, when the fur trade helped shape a nation; the other predates the flag as an emblem of this land, its people, and our hope for the future. The Royal Canadian Mint reflects on a nation's 150-year journey—and beyond—through the fusion of two iconic symbols that continue to inspire admiration by proudly representing all that is Canada.

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin carries great meaning on this 150th anniversary of Confederation, by paying tribute to Canada's evolving history through the two foremost national icons. A transition marks the centre of the field, with classic depictions on the left to represent the nation's past (1867), and more contemporary versions on the right to represent both the present (2017) and beyond. Both icons are resplendent in selective gold plating. Foremost is the beaver, the industrious mammal that is symbolizes Canada's sovereignty. Its tail and back half are texturally detailed, as it has appeared on previous coin designs, while the front portion transitions into a stylized silhouette that offers a more modern take on this Canadian icon. Behind it is the iconic maple leaf, whose serrated edges and deeply veined lobes are fixtures throughout the design. The left features a more natural and life-like appearance that evokes the reverse of the beloved Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin, while the right portion places a strong emphasis on symmetry and conveys a sense of strength.


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