A perfect 10! Every Canadian maple is represented on this 10 oz. coin. Order today!

Canada’s arboreal emblem consists of not one but 10 different maple (Acer)species, and that diversity is perfectly illustrated on this 10 oz. pure silver coin. Its engraved design features a clockwise swirl of Canadian maple leaves, each one different from the other and held together by a ribbon that ends in a bow. To top it off, we’ve added selective touches of red and white – Canada’s official colours since 1921 – to transform this Arboreal Anniversary piece into a dual celebration of national symbols.

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Michelle Grant, the coin’s reverse features a leaf arrangement representing the 10 native Canadian maple (Acer) species (clockwise): mountain (A. spicatum), red (A. rubrum), striped (A. pensylvanicum), Manitoba (A. negundo), Douglas (A. glabrum), sugar (A. saccharum), big leaf (A. macrophyllum), silver (A. saccharinum), black (A. nigrum) and vine (A. circinatum). Red enamel highlights the sugar maple leaf at the centre; selective frosting adds a touch of white to the ribbon, bow and banner, which bears the dates “1921-2021” to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Canada’s national colours (red and white). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and a special privy mark in honour of the 25th anniversary (1996-2021) of Canada’s national arboreal emblem, the maple (Acer).

“These maple leaves represent both diversity and unity. Though they all look very different from one another, it amazes me that they still belong to the same species. Their shapes, not only between the species but between individual leaves, are delicate and elegant yet some are more robust, affording a broad range of options for design and movement. These elements are mirrored in our country’s culture, diverse and unified, making me proud to be Canadian."  - Michelle Grant, Artist

The colour red is a defining autumn feature of the leaves of many of Canada’s 10 maple species, which perhaps best explains the significance attributed to the maple leaf by Canadians. On the 25th anniversary of the proclamation of the maple genus (Acer) as Canada’s arboreal symbol, it is inspiring to see the leaves of all the 10 Canadian species presented together, in a celebration of Canada’s national colours and national tree."  - Ken Farr, Author of The Forests of Canada

Did you know?
  • Red and white became our national colours in 1921, as a result of the proclamation of the coat of arms by King George V. Historically, those two colours have also been associated with England and France.
  • Among the maples featured on this coin, the black maple (Acer nigrum)is known to cross with the more famous sugar maple (A. saccharum) where their ranges overlap. The striped maple (A. pensylvanicum) and the vine maple (A. circinatum) tend to be overshadowed by other species (literally) – as both are understory trees. And the mountain maple (A. spicatum) holds the distinction of being our smallest maple species, while the Manitoba maple (A. negundo)produces the most distinctive leaf – it’s the only Canadian maple with compound leaves.

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