Canadians love their Queen. Moreover, for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the affection is clearly mutual. She has visited her “home away from home” 22 times during her reign—more than any other Commonwealth nation. The Queen displayed her affection for Canada once again during her most recent visit in 2010 when she wore a maple leaves brooch that observers did not recognize—a gift originally presented to her grandmother, Queen Mary (then Duchess) during a royal tour in 1901. It is unknown how long the brooch had been hidden away in the royal vault, but one thing is certain, that spray of maple leaves evoked a sense of home so poignant that The Queen was inspired to wear them as an outward expression of the warmth she feels for her second home—the home of the maple leaf. This beautiful coin returns that gesture with an exquisite reproduction of the brooch she wore.

Design:

Royal Canadian Mint engravers replicated The Queen’s maple leaves brooch with exacting detail—six enamel maple leaves in autumn colours and edged with brilliants, all twined together with a single pearl at the end. An engraved floral garland follows the curve of the coin while The Queen’s Royal Cypher shines above in vibrant colour.

Did you know…
  • The brooch was worn twice during The Queen’s 2010 tour: on June 29 at a reception at the Cunard Centre in Halifax (Nova Scotia), and on July 5 while visiting Research in Motion in Waterloo and Pinewood Studios in Toronto (Ontario).
  • Observers of the 2010 tour noted that The Queen flipped the brooch depending upon what she was wearing—the single pearl was at the bottom when the brooch was pinned to a jacket or coat, and at the top when the brooch was pinned to a dress.
  • When the brooch was presented to Queen Mary (then Duchess) in 1901, it was during the first transcontinental royal tour that highlighted the significance of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Lady Strathcona presented the brooch on behalf of Montreal’s Citizens’ Reception Committee.
  • In his book The Royal Tour in Canada, 1901, Joseph Pope described the brooch as, “…a spray of maple leaves wrought in gold and enamel set with diamonds and pearls.” An album of Canadian views accompanied this gift.
  • In May 1902, the brooch was put on display at the Imperial Institute in London (England) alongside more than 870 individual gifts. The Times reported that, “…Canada, like Tasmania, is represented by a beautiful collection of furs and by some jewelry of great value…”
