Shining as bright as our spirit of innovation, this coin is our largest convex-shaped offering to date.
Superbly crafted in a kilogram of 99.99% pure silver, the reverse features a bouquet of maple leaves
that appears to swell with the collective pride of a nation as it curves outwards — a luminous
representation of Canada!
Designed by artist Stan Witten, senior engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint, the convex-shaped
reverse features an engraved grouping of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves of different sizes,
all positioned to form a unique bouquet of foliage. Together, the five leaves are radiant against
the highly reflective shine of the field’s proof finish, yet each one is set apart by a different finish
that creates a gentle contrast. This gathered arrangement makes full use of the coin’s expansive
surface and unusual curvature; extending out towards the viewer for a more dimensional
presentation, the iconic Canadian symbol appears to swell with the collective pride of a nation.
The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Beautifully crafted in a full kilogram of 99.99%
pure silver, this magnificent piece is the largest-sized convex coin ever produced by the
Royal Canadian Mint.
