This 2016 $20 fine silver coin features our national emblem, the maple leaf, and its cycle of life.  The coin weighs just over one half ounce of pure silver.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.   

The Design:

The design features an artistic interpretation of the cycle of life through the evolution of the sugar mapleEach element draws parallels to the artist’s own family tree, with each generation represented by the leaf’s 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.  Around the rim of the coin the word “CANADA”, the date “2016 and the face value of “10 DOLLARS” are engraved.
