Canadians abide by the seasons of our land. We flourish here: families grow and communities blossom, as each generation of Canadians strives to create a better world for those who follow. This cycle of life is beautifully exemplified by the tree that bears our national emblem, the maple leaf, whose growth and regeneration is poignantly depicted on this fine silver coin.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Donna Kriekle features an artistic interpretation of the cycle of life, which is exemplified by the evolution of a sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaf. Each element draws parallels to the artistÕs own family tree, with each generation represented by the leafÕs different stage of growth: the winged maple key known as a samara (bottom left) represents the children, and the promise of new life; the curved appearance of the branch follows the progression of time, as gentle flowers turn into young leaves; the deeply veined appearance of the mature leaf then gives way to the broad, elder leaf in autumn.

A superb addition to your own growing collection, or a memorable memento that can be lovingly passed from generation to generation.
