The splendour of Canada’s landscape is a point of year-round pride for Canadians, but it is arguably at its finest in autumn when the nation’s maple trees put on a dazzling display of colour.

DESIGN:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra utilizes a unique vantage point to capture the awe-inspiring autumn splendours of a beautiful setting. There’s a towering sense of height as the viewer’s gaze sweeps along the trunk of the mighty maple tree, moving upward from the base over the intricately engraved fissures and ridges, to the branches that seem to spread out overhead and across the sky. There, a lush canopy of fall foliage blazes brightly with rich hues of red, orange and yellow that have been painstakingly applied over the engraving to recreate nature’s autumnal palette. Adding to this immersive viewing experience, the coin’s surface lends itself naturally to recreating the waning sun’s golden rays, which filter through the gaps among the colourful leaves on a magnificent autumn day in Canada. mint
