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.

                        Hi Aldo,

                        The 'Canadian Maple Leaves 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin (2016)' is a collector (numismatic) coin, not bullion. The Royal Canadian Mint does not provide investment advice.

                        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).

                        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".
