Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The maple leaf has long been an internationally recognized emblem of Canada, its people and the land itself. Canada has had a long relationship with the maple leaf, one that harkens back to the beginning of the 18th century, when the maple leaf was adopted by French Canadians who dwelled along the St. Lawrence River; it was described by the first mayor of Montreal as "the symbol of the Canadian people." By the mid-1800s, it came to be included in the Coat of Arms of both Ontario and Quebec, and by 1921, was included in the federal Coat of Arms of Canada. In 1965, Canada's flag was changed from the Canadian Red Ensign to the maple leaf flag we know and love today.�This $5 pure gold coin was struck in 1/10th of an ounce of pure gold and designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, with a fresh and light new perspective on the exemplary Canadian maple leaf. One could almost imagine looking up into an autumn sky to watch these gentle leaves fall slowly to earth! Engraving adds depth to the image by showcasing the maple's deeply cut veins and serrate leaf margins. A proud addition to any collection of Canadiana-themed gold coins.
