It’s a maple-themed celebration… with a twist! The 2021 fractional set celebrates the maple tree’s 25-year (and counting) reign as the national arboreal emblem of Canada. All five coins feature the Silver Maple Leaf bullion design on the reverse, where an array of precisely rendered sub-millimetre-scale mirrors gives the impression that the maple leaf is pulsating—like a heart swelling with national pride.

Each reverse features the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin design, rendered using engineered surface mirror (“pulsating”) technology developed in collaboration with the Centre for Research in Photonics at the University of Ottawa. All five coins are doubled dated (“1996 2021”) in honour of the 25th anniversary of the proclamation designating the maple tree (Acer spp.) as the national arboreal emblem of Canada. The reverse and obverse field pattern reproduces an expanded, non-pulsating version of the pulsating pattern on the maple leaf. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
