About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Donna Kriekle, your coin features an artistic interpretation of the cycle of life, which is exemplified by the evolution of a sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaf. Each element draws parallels to the artist's own family tree, with each generation represented by the leaf's different stage of growth: the winged maple key known as a samara (bottom left) represents the children, and the promise of new life; the curved appearance of the branch follows the progression of time, as gentle flowers turn into young leaves; the deeply veined appearance of the mature leaf then gives way to the broad, elder leaf in autumn.

Packaging:

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

      Comments about Canadian Maple Leaves 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin (2016):

      Love this coin. It is simple, classic, and a well weighted asymmetrical design. I really like how there's a little maple helicopter in there too! Great contrast between the polished and matte areas that make the design stand out. It is nice on it's own, but I will likely go back and order other 1/2 ounce silver maple leaf coins from previous years which match this one. Very nice for the cost as well.

                      Hi Matthew,

                      Thanks for your questions. This is the 2016 issue of the Canadian Maple Leaf 1/2 oz silver coin. The mintage is and will always remain 30,000 on this coin; we will never sell more than 30,000 coins with this design. Anyone who purchases this coin will receive a serialized certificate of authenticity stating which number coin out of 30,000 they have received (ie 2,456/30,000).

                      A:

                      COA - commonly stands for "Certificate of Authenticity". This is the certificate that comes with serialized coin products.

                      Hi Turkey,

                      Serialized coins come with a certificate of authenticity that includes product details and a unique serialized # for that specific coin.

                      As for COA, there's no reference to that on the product page for the Canadian Maple Leaves 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin (2016) so I'm unable to provide a definite answer to this. It can mean Coat of Arms, but there's not a coat of arms on this coin. Please submit another questions where you're seeing "COA".
