OUR LARGEST CANOPY-THEMED COIN YET! Order today!

Standing tall in our eastern forests, the sugar maple is as hardy as the people it represents. Canada’s arboreal emblem is magnificent in the summer, when branches that have weathered wild winds and cold winters reach ever higher into the sky. Its broad leaves form a dense canopy that filters the sun’s warm rays on your coin’s design, allowing light to spill down through the gaps and create an inspiring view from the ground.

Step into a maple grove where you look “up” in awe overhead! Order your coin today!

Special features:
  • AN IMMERSIVE VIEWING EXPERIENCE! Your coin pulls you into the summer scene by creating the impression of standing beneath the towering maple trees and looking up at the vaulted canopy of leaves overhead!
  • INSPIRED BY A NATURAL PHENOMENON! A thin gap in the coloured foliage allows the proof silver finish to mimic the effect of filtered sunlight, which forms a maple leaf among the leaves!
  • OUR BIGGEST CANOPY YET! Your coin’s 50 mm diameter makes it the largest of all our canopy-themed coins to date!
  • A STUNNING MIX OF ENGRAVING AND COLOUR! While finely detailed engraving adds life-like texture to the tree trunks and branches, the coin’s polished surface stands in for sunlight shining down between the coloured foliage.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 3,500 coins worldwide.
  • 2 OZ. OF PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from two ounces of 99.99% pure silver and has no GST/HST.

Design:

Designed by artist Emily Damstra, your coin showcases the picturesque beauty of the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum) on a bright summer day. The unique perspective creates the impression of standing at the base of an iconic Canadian tree, and looking up at the engraved trunks and branches that reach ever higher into the cloudless sky. Inspired by the natural phenomenon of crown shyness, the coloured maple canopy is marked by thin borders of light that form a distinctive shape among the leaves, where the shine of a proof finish stands in for sunlight. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Crown shyness is a natural phenomenon that occurs when the crowns of closely spaced trees (often of the same species) do not touch each other. Instead, a thin border of light forms around each tree’s upper foliage, dividing the canopy into fragments. One theory suggests that this type of gap is formed when branches sway in the wind, collide, and then break.
  • Although the maple leaf first appeared on Canada’s flag in 1965, the symbol has been associated with Canada and Canadians for far longer. Surprisingly, the ubiquitous maple leaf isn’t an official Canadian emblem, but the maple tree (representing the ten species of maple native to Canada) was recognized as our national arboreal emblem in 1996.
  • The largest-sized maple leaf was found in 2010 in Richmond, B.C. It measured 53 centimetres wide and just over 52 centimetres long, or more than double the size of a typical maple leaf!

Packaging:

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

A magnificent gift or addition to your nature lover’s collection! Order today!
