Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The whispering movement of maple leaves is Canada’s summer song: a peaceful yet invigorating sound that softly rolls through the air in gentle waves. This 3 oz. fine silver coin captures the beauty of maple foliage swaying in a warm breeze, with the addition of reverse gold plating to mimic the golden glow of a summer day. It’s our first 3-ounce reverse gold plated coin! Your coin’s large diameter (55 mm) provides a large canvas for the contemporary design on the reverse, where even the smallest engraved details shine!

The reverse design by Canadian artist Calder Moore presents a contemporary, stylized take on the traditional depiction of Canada’s most beloved national emblem. Intricate engraving re-creates a grouping of maple leaves, with each leaf comprised of geometric-based shapes that give it a more multi-faceted appearance, to convey a swaying motion in the warm breeze. Beautiful reverse gold plating fills the reverse in a way that mimics the golden glow cast by the summer sun. Only the effigy on the obverse, and the central leaf on the reverse, offer a glimpse of the coin’s silver surface—its polished surface adds an exquisite shine, like that of direct sunlight illuminating each engraved detail within the leaf’s serrated tips. The reverse gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The coin’s silver surface is only visible in the central leaf on the reverse, and the effigy on the obverse! The effect is a stunning contrast—one that greatly emphasizes the geometric-based shapes that give each leaf a multi-faceted appearance.

A poetic ode to Canada's natural beauty on the 150th anniversary of Confederation! It’s an eye-catching gift for any nature or art lover, or an exquisite addition to any collection—particularly those with strong nature or Canadiana themes.
