Description

Canada has seen a world of change since Confederation in 1867—and from its prominent place on Canada’s coins, the proud maple leaf has borne silent witness to it all! In preparation for Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Royal Canadian Mint pays homage to a well-loved symbol of national pride, identity and spirit, by revisiting the maple leaf’s depiction on a young nation’s first circulation coins. Kick off the celebrations for the nation’s 150th anniversary with a distinctive coin that offers a snapshot of a momentous time in Canadian history! Mintage is limited to 250 coins. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The reverse pays tribute to the original design that graced Canada’s early circulation coins. Bound together by a bow at the bottom of the reverse, two crossed maple boughs gently curve upwards along the coin’s perimeter. Cutting-edge sculpting and finishing techniques recreate each of the 21 maple leaves in breathtaking detail, as they lead the eye towards a current creation of the coronation crown (St. Edward’s Crown) at the very top.

An extraordinary way to celebrate Canada’s milestone anniversary, or let your passionate Canadian pride shine brightly!
