The glorious Canadian maple and our beloved Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada – two icons that for more than sixty years have symbolized our country and our collective sense of identity. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates the remarkable reign of our Queen with a new series featuring the four effigies of Her Majesty that have appeared on Canadian circulated coinage since 1953. This is the third coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s new series celebrating the Canadian coinage effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. A limited mintage of 1,500 means that this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.

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 features the third obverse of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to appear on Canadian coinage in 1990, when she was 64 years old. Her Majesty wears a grand jewelled tiara and a beautiful string of pearls. The effigy is encircled with the Latin legend “ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA,” which means “Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen.”
