Description

The Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates the remarkable reign of Queen Elizabeth II with a new series featuring the four effigies of Her Majesty that have appeared on Canadian circulated coinage since 1953. This coin, struck in pure gold, has a reverse that features a beautiful and symbolically powerful design of two sugar maple leaves; the Canadian maple and our Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II– two icons that for more than sixty years have symbolized our country. A very limited mintage of only 1,500 coins worldwide makes this a unique collecting opportunity or a generous gift to any Canadiana-lover you know. As a pure gold coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST / GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse image by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features two sugar maple leaves. Pointing downward, the overlapping leaves are attached by their stems to a single twig at the top of the image. The leaves are engraved with careful precision using a variety of textures to lend depth to the image. The reverse is engraved with the words “CANADA” the date “2015” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS”. The obverse design, originally by British sculptor and artist Arnold Machin, features the second obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to appear on Canadian coinage in 1965, when she was 39 years old. Her Majesty wears a jewelled tiara and an elaborate gown. The effigy is encircled with the Latin legend “ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA,” which means “Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen.”
