A MORE AFFORDABLE GOLD COIN! Outstanding amount of detail! Order today!

Beautifully diverse, Canada's native maple trees inspire reverence wherever they're found! Each species is typically identifiable by the shape of its foliage—particularly the deeply cut "V" sinuses that define the leaf of a silver maple. Stately and elegant, this fast-growing tree can grow up to 35 metres tall in moist soils, such as those that line the waterways of Eastern Canada. It's aptly named for the leaf's striking silvery-white underside, which seemingly shimmers on this exquisite gold coin!

  • 99.99% PURE GOLD! Your coin has no GST/HST!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Margaret Best, your coin captures the lifelike beauty of an iconic Canadian maple by bringing together not one but two silver maple leaves. Both are depicted in a downward position, as they often appear naturally when attached to a branch. The view of the leaf's upper surface (foreground, right) dominates the field; slightly curling at the tips, it bears the deeply veined pattern that produces an intricate, almost lace-like appearance. The crossover of the two stalks adds a sense of layering as the focus transitions to the second leaf (left), which presents its silvery underside. Where the veins are sunken on the first leaf, they are raised and prominent on the second—another example of the characteristic differences between a leaf's two sides, which are further enhanced by the use of matte and polish finishes that recreate the striking visual contrast between the two.

Packaging:

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