Description

To Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Canada is her "home away from home", that she has visited 22 times during her reign, more than any other Commonwealth nation! During her most recent visit in 2010, she displayed her affection for Canada by wearing a maple leaves brooch that was originally presented to her grandmother, Queen Mary (then Duchess) during a royal tour in 1901.

It is unknown how long the brooch had been hidden away in the royal vault, but one thing is certain; it evoked a sense of home so poignant that The Queen was inspired to wear it as an outward expression of the warmth she feels for her second home, the home of the maple leaf. This beautiful coin returns that gesture with an exquisite reproduction of the brooch she wore.

On the reverse design by Maurade Baynton, Royal Canadian Mint engravers have replicated The Queen's maple leaves brooch with exacting detail, six enamel maple leaves in autumn colours and edged with brilliants, all twined together with a single pearl at the end. An engraved floral garland follows the curve of the coin while The Queen's Royal Cypher shines above in vibrant colour.
