Description

Shining as bright as our spirit of innovation, this coin is our largest convex-shaped offering to date. Superbly crafted in a kilogram of 99.99% pure silver, the reverse features a bouquet of maple leaves that appears to swell with the collective pride of a nation as it curves outwards, a luminous representation of Canada!

Designed by artist Stan Witten, senior engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint, the convex-shaped reverse features an engraved grouping of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves of different sizes, all positioned to form a unique bouquet of foliage. Together, the five leaves are radiant against the highly reflective shine of the field's proof finish, yet each one is set apart by a different finish that creates a gentle contrast. This gathered arrangement makes full use of the coin's expansive surface and unusual curvature; extending out towards the viewer for a more dimensional presentation, the iconic Canadian symbol appears to swell with the collective pride of a nation. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Beautifully crafted in a full kilogram of 99.99% pure silver, this magnificent piece is the largest-sized convex coin ever produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.
