On September 9, 2015, the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surpasses that of Queen Victoria (63 years 7 months and 3 days) to become the longest reigning Sovereign in modern Canadian history (only exceeded in our history by the reign of His Majesty King Louis XIV). Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, has served as a constant symbol of duty, service, continuity and affection for Canada and all Canadians. This set of beautifully engraved silver coins in one-ounce and fractional denominations brings together two images that evoke Canada's pride, strength and rich history in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty's historic reign, which reflects so much of this country's accomplishments as a modern, dynamic and proud country. Recreating the leaf's appearance in a natural setting, three different sizes of maple leaves are joined at the stem and gently splay out to fill the entirety of the reverse.
Each leaf's distinctively serrated edge and deep veins are given a life-like quality by meticulous engraving, which shines brilliantly thanks to the reverse proof finish against the frosted background. There is pink gold plating on the largest of the three maple leaves, on the Queen's effigy and on the rim. The obverse pays tribute to the historic reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a recreation of the 1952 effigy of Her Majesty wearing the Imperial State Crown (worn at her Coronation).The coins are presented in a clamshell case with a custom outer box showing an image of Her Majesty on her Coronation day, wearing the Imperial State Crown shown on each of the coins. Only 7500 of these coins (in sets) were minted. Lending historical context to this celebration of Her Majesty's reign is the 1952 effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Imperial State Crown on the obverse. Yellow and pink gold plating on the one-ounce coin add a beautiful contrast to the silver while enhancing the precision engraving.
The other coins have pink gold plating on both the reverse and the obverse. The reverse proof finish gives the leaves a beautiful, natural shine against the frosted background.
