RCM'S FIRST IN HISTORY MAPLE LEAF SHAPED SILVER COIN! Few icons are as inextricably linked to Canada as the mighty maple leaf. A proud national emblem that is evocative of Canada's natural beauty, it has inspired artists; graced the uniforms of soldiers pursuing peace; given hope to new Canadians looking for opportunities; and continues to evoke a sense of national identity among the millions who call Canada home. THE COIN IS IN PERFECT MINT CONDITION AND COMES WITH.
The obverse of the coin has the classical royal. Mint effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse design by Royal Canadian Mint Engraver Marcos Hallam recreates the familiar shape of a maple leaf - specifically that of the silver maple (Acer saccharinum) species.
The coin's unique shape accentuates the palmate leaf's beautifully serrated edges, and an intricate series of deep veins are rendered with finely detailed engraving, as they run through each of the leaf's five-pointed tapering lobes. Different finishes bring added dimension to the design, enhancing the engraving and lending the leaf a bright natural appearance. The coin - a stunning, one-of-a-kind addition to any collection - is presented in a special wooden case complete with a viewing window in the lid, allowing for the coin to be displayed and viewed anytime.
