Canada's dearest symbol tells many stories: the story of an indigenous civilization that found in its dense wood and sweet sap two excellent resources. The story of an emerging nation that adopted the maple leaf as its prime identifier. And the story of this beautiful tree's annual cycle, from early springtime's sap run to the final rainbow of fall colour before winter's sleep. The maple has been an important Canadian resource from time immemorial, its leaf a Canadian symbol for nearly 200 years, and the vast forests it dominates a favourite place for Canadians to enjoy and explore.

Your 5 oz. pure silver coin features a unique convex shape, making the reverse rise toward the viewer. Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo's design of a swirling storm of maple leaves bolsters the sense of depth and dimension. The concave obverse reproduces one of the reverse leaves in a repeating pattern. The reverse features the date "2018" and the word "CANADA". The obverse features a concentric repeating leaf pattern along with the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a beautiful red-lacquered collector's case and encapsulated in a black beauty box.
