A single maple leaf can make Canadians swell with pride no matter where we find ourselves, but when viewed along with scores of other maple leaves? That feeling is increased a hundredfold. Thanks to glow-in-the-dark technology, this affordable fine silver coin shines the light on the radiant red leaf that is at the heart of a special celebration of Canada.

A powerful symbol of Canadian identity, the maple leaf is front-and-centre in this reverse design by Royal Canadian Mint engraver, JosŽ Osio. A finely engraved mix of different-sized maple leaves fills the field and conveys a sense of spirited celebration behind the large, red-coloured maple leaf that is at the heart of the design. The reverse is transformed in the dark, where photo-luminescent technology adds a backlit effect to the prominent maple leaf and a bright green glow to select leaves that surround it. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Photo-luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) technology provides a second viewing experience in the dark: a backlit effect highlights the red maple leaf, which is surrounded by several green-glowing leaves.
