The glorious Canadian maple and our beloved Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of CanadaÑtwo 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.

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 ÒCANADAÓ the date Ò2016Ó and the face value of Ò10 DOLLARSÓ. The obverse design features the fourth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to appear on Canadian coinage in 2003, when she was 77 years old. The effigy is reminiscent of that of her father, His Majesty King George VI, who acceded to the throne in his later years and also chose to be portrayed not wearing the Crown. It is encircled with the Latin legend ÒELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA,Ó which means ÒElizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen.Ó

A limited mintage of 1000 means that this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.
