The timeless shape of a maple leaf evokes the natural beauty of the Canadian landscape throughout the seasons—particularly in autumn, when maple leaves transform their surroundings with a spectacular burst of red, yellow and gold colours! Celebrate Canada’s most iconic national symbol with a uniquely shaped fine silver coin that captures a si maple leaf’s colourful autumn transformation.
The coin’s extraordinary design captures the beauty of a silver maple leaf in all its autumn splendour. The wavy, irregular nature of the leaf’s edge and the curved sinuses between its palmate lobes are painstakingly replicated through a labour-intensive process, which gives the coin its distinctive shape. Intricate detailing on the reverse brings it all to life, with veins running through the three upper lobes and the two smaller basal lobes. The full application of vibrant colour recreates the brilliant array of red, yellow and orange colours that are famously associated with the silver maple leaf on an autumn day in Canada.
