A FIRST! Our first ever half ounce maple leaf shaped coin! Order today!

The maple leaf is the centrepiece of the Canadian flag and is arguably the nation's most recognized symbol at home and abroad. And, with ten different maple species growing across Canada, there are bound to be maple trees near every lake or pond where Canada geese live. Just like the widespread maple, the Canada goose is another icon that's found from coast to coast, even flying as far north as the Arctic during the summer.

A unique design, sure to be the talk of your coin display! Order today!

Special features:
  • UNIQUE DESIGN AND SHAPE! Two Canada geese and a maple leaf come together seamlessly in this clever design that takes full advantage of the coin's unique sculpted shape to position
    two geese within the lobes of the leaf.
  • DETAILED DESIGN! Every detail of the geese is visible, from the beautiful plumage of their wings to their signature white cheeks.
  • QUINTESSENTIAL CANADIAN! This design is a quintessential Canadian scene of waterfowl feeding in the shallow water at the edge of a pond or lake. Ripples in the water enhance the leaf's texture while a branch in the background doubles as the leaf's veins.
  • THIRD MAPLE LEAF-SHAPED COIN EVER ISSUED BY THE MINT! Order yours today before they're all gone!
  • HALF OZ. OF 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!

About the Design:

Two Canada geese and a maple leaf come together seamlessly in this clever design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant that takes full advantage of the coin's unique sculpted shape to position two geese within the lobes of the leaf. Every detail of the geese is visible, from the beautiful plumage of their wings to their signature white cheeks. This design is a quintessential Canadian scene of waterfowl feeding in the shallow water at the edge of a pond or lake. Ripples in the water enhance the leaf's texture while a branch in the background doubles as the leaf's veins.

How many more leaf shape coins the mint is planning to make? Is it going to be one or two maybe each year? Thanks.

There are two reverses pictured; what's the story? Which one gets shipped if the coin is ordered?

GeoReg

There is only one reverse image for this coin, featuring two geese. There are two images showing the reverse shown here. One image shows the coin on its own, while the other shows the coin in its unique leaf-shaped capsule. Please see the product video for a full 360 degree view of the coin.

Just click the 2nd thumbnail image and you'll see the larger version appear in the main image area.
