A powerful symbol of the Canadian experience, the maple leaf has the ability to evoke a swelling
sense of national pride while reminding us of the beauty of the landscape. This beloved icon is
celebrated in the latest Maple Leaf
innovative use of colour technology.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi features outstanding full colour over the
engraved depiction of a maple leaf, which is seen here as part of Canada’s stunning autumn
landscape. In a wooded area, the cool autumn breeze has already caused brightly coloured maple
leaves to tumble down to the ground. Each leaf is brought to life through careful engraving and a
vibrant mix of red, yellow, orange and green colours; these give the leaf pile a natural look and feel
while providing a colourful backdrop to the fallen tree. Detailed engraving masterfully recreates the
rough texture of the fissured bark, upon which lays the beloved Canadian icon: a maple leaf. It,
too, is resplendent in full colour against the muted colours of the tree trunk, while shadows subtly
infuse the breathtaking design with a sense of light, depth and dimension.
This is an exclusive collecting opportunity for those
seeking to own a one-of-a-kind coin that is
breathtaking from both an artistic and technical point-of-view.
