  • This spectacular coin exemplifies the innovative craftsmanship for which the Royal Canadian Mint is world-renowned.

DESIGN :

The reverse design by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features two silver maple (Acer saccharinum) leaves. With their five deeply divided lobes and dentate leaf margins, each silver maple leaf is an image of delicate natural beauty as one leaf lies superimposed over the other, their long petioles crossed, as though each had softly fallen to the ground on a beautiful autumn day. A struck hologram across the entirety of the engraved leaf’s undulating surface; allows natural light to be refracted from different angles as the coin is tilted from side to side, creating an iridescent rainbow effect that has been enhanced by the use of multiple polishes. The overall effect is an exquisite coin that is brimming with dynamic movement, dazzling colour and remarkable depth.
