This coin is part of the popular O Canada series by the Royal Canadian Mint, which focuses on classic Canadian imagery; it harkens the childhood joy of swinging underneath an old maple tree, a past time enjoyed by many Canadian children for generations. The image depicts a young boy pulling himself up onto a sturdy plank of wood that serves as a perfect seat. The branches and leaves of the maple tree in the background and foreground of the image make one feel as if they were standing there themselves, a faint breeze ruffling the leaves around them. The engravers at the Royal Canadian Mint have used a variety of techniques and finishes to bring depth and texture to the bark and leaves of the tree, as well as bringing an animated, life-like quality to the happy child. This sweet coin is struck in a full ounce of 99.99% fine silver, and features a proof finish. This would make a charming addition to any collection of fine silver coins.
