Description

The maple leaf is the centrepiece of the Canadian Flag and is arguably the nationÕs most recognized symbol at home and abroad. With ten different maple species growing across Canada, there are bound to be maple trees near every lake or pond where Canada geese live. Just like the widespread maple, the Canada goose is another icon thatÕs found from coast to coast, even flying as far north as the Arctic during the summer. In true Canadian fashion, the Canada goose is steadfast and strong, and fiercely loyal with breeding pairs remaining together for life. Two of CanadaÕs most widely recognized icons broughttogether in the frame of a fine Canadian silver maple.

Two Canada geese and a maple leaf come together seamlessly in this clever design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant that takes full advantage of the coinÕs unique sculpted shape to position two geese within the lobes of the leaf. Every detail of the geese is visible, from the beautiful plumage of their wings to their signature white cheeks. This design is a quintessential Canadian scene of waterfowl feeding in the shallow water at the edge of a pond or lake. Ripples in the water enhance the leafÕs texture while a branch in the background doubles as the leafÕs veins.

This beautiful coin is a must-have acquisition for collectors of all kinds, and will appeal to bird watchers, nature lovers, and people who appreciate the beauty of art,particularly when it has a distinctive all-Canadian flair!
