The mighty sugar maple (Acer saccharum) has borne witness to Canada's prehistory, its political birth, and its development as a nation committed to peace. Enhanced by an elegant touch of gold plating, this Maple Leaf Forever platinum coin is a numismatic tribute to a powerful Canadian symbol that represents our history. Our identity. Our pride. Our home. Like previous Maple Leaf Forever coins, this offering is limited to just 250 coins worldwide. HST/GST exempt.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc captures the natural beauty of the sugar maple leaf in outstanding detail. The smaller-sized leaf in the foreground is resplendent in platinum as it gently overlaps a larger leaf, whose gold-plated gleam easily catches the eye. The rim is also gold-plated on both sides, where it elegantly frames the reverse proof finish. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Like previous Maple Leaf Forever coins, this offering is limited to just 250 coins worldwide, and is just as likely to sell out quickly!
