From coast to coast, Canada’s natural landscape offers up endless possibilities where one can find beauty and tranquility—even in the smallest of movements. In a moment that could be easily taken for granted during a hike through Canada’s many forests, this stunning coin poignantly captures a peaceful sight featuring the much-loved maple leaf.
Micro engraved detail showcases Canada’s beloved symbol, the maple leaf, in a remarkable design that captures a tranquil moment in a scene that can be appreciated from coast to coast. The micro engraved leaf and laser frosted text are reflected in the water, marking the first time that a design has combined traditional and micro engraving with the addition of laser frosting techniques in such a unique and innovative way.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Lilyane Coulombe features a natural scene with timeless appeal: here, a single maple leaf has fluttered down from a branch above onto the still waters below it. Canada’s beloved symbol is showcased in stunning detail thanks to finely detailed engraving that recreates the veins which run along its lobes. Gently piercing the water’s mirror-like surface, the tip of the leaf’s lobe has set off a wave of soft ripples; and yet the leaf’s micro-engraved reflection remains, bouncing with the water’s movement in a serene moment that would be all too brief–had it not been forever suspended in time with this coin.
