About the Design:

The reverse design brings together the use of colour, precision engraving and an innovative design to create a one-of-a-kind numismatic maze. A small brass ball rolls freely along the engraved circular pathway that forms the maze, while multiple paths provide the challenge of getting the ball to the bull's eye in the centre of the reverse. In the background is a partial view of a Canadian icon that is recognized worldwide: the beautiful red maple leaf that proudly adorns our national flag. The reverse includes the engraved word "CANADA" and the year "2016". The obverse features the face value
"20 DOLLARS" and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

For your safety: Keep the coin securely in its capsule at all times to ensure you don't risk losing the small ball, which could pose a choking hazard for young children.

Did you know…
  • Mazes have appeared in ancient Greek texts as far back as the 5th century BCE. In fact, it appears in one of the best-known Greek myths, Theseus and The Minotaur, in which Theseus becomes a Greek hero by navigating this maze and defeating the creature. From there, the idea spread and the puzzle has since been widely used around the world, from the architecture of early Christian churches to the lavish gardens at the Palace of Versailles in France. 
  • What's the difference between a labyrinth and a maze? A labyrinth is said to have a single path that winds its way into the middle, which forces you to retrace your path to get back out; a maze has dead ends or many different paths and directions to choose from.
  • The first maze recorded in history was the Egyptian Labyrinth visited by the Greek writer Herodotus, but little remains of it today.
  • Hedge mazes date back to Roman times and had spread to England by the 16th century.
