First-ever 5 oz. silver coin to feature a hologram! More than any other symbol, it’s the maple leaf that says “Canada” to the world. Just as it takes thousands of leaves to create a tree and transform sunlight into life-giving energy; it takes countless individuals to form a community and transform their individual skills, cultures and ideas into a nation of freedom, prosperity and joy.
Canadian artist Michelle Grant has created a show-stopper of a coin design to showcase the maple leaf, Canada’s quintessential national symbol. Two holographic leaves shine from the coin’s centre in a range of colours as they reflect golden hues of sunlight; while individual leaves engraved along the coin’s perimeter form a ring with the inscriptions “Canada“, “2015” and “50 dollars”.
