9999 Fine Silver Coins (total 2oz pure silver). The coins are in brand new condition! Beautiful translucent maple leaf set amongst 100 others! For almost 300 years, the red maple leaf has symbolized Canadian identity and values. Today, Canadians are recognized worldwide by this singular image, which they faithfully sport on pins, badges and appliqués. And of course, there is the popularized Canadian flag. However, the inclusion of the maple leaf on our national flag only happened within the last century: during World War I, future prime minister Lester B. Pearson noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, the maple leaf flag was born. This fine silver coin showcases our nation’s iconic symbol and celebrates the robust Canadian spirit. Coin captures in 99.99% pure silver the beauty and variety of the iconic maple leaf. Over 100 maple leaves captured within one coin! Larger than the previously released Maple Leaf Impression! Meticulously presented in a beautiful proof finish. Limited mintage of 10,000.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve. Your coin is a select addition to any coin collection that celebrates not only the robust Canadian spirit, but the exceptional craftsmanship offered by the Royal Canadian Mint. 99.99 % fine silver. José Osio (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse). Second coin in beautiful maple leaf with colour series! From backpackers in Berlin to peacekeepers in Pakistan, Canadians are immediately identifiable by a singular image they faithfully sport on pins, badges, and appliqués: the red maple leaf. This lyrical cipher has symbolized Canada and Canadians for nearly two hundred years. Historians generally recognize the adoption of the maple leaf by Quebec’s Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Montreal in 1836 as the first official use of the symbol to represent an element of Canadian culture. The symbol was soon popularized in print, song, and in the small markers-such as lapel pins-with which Canadian residents of various origins honoured their homelands. The English had their roses, the Scots their thistle, the Irish their shamrocks, and the French their fleur-de-lis-and native-born Canadians quickly chose the prosaic maple leaf. The idea of including the maple leaf on Canada’s national flag took root with Lester B. Pearson in World War I, when he noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, in 1965, under his leadership as prime minister, Canada’s famous red-and-white maple leaf flag was born. In addition to the maple leaf’s presence on various provincial flags and coats of arms, the country’s coinage has featured maple leaves, wreaths, and boughs in various forms for most of Canada’s history. In fact, the maple leaf was present on all Canadian coins from 1876 to 1901. Since that time, it has always appeared on Canadian pennies until 2012. A beautiful keepsake for someone you know visiting Canada! Third coin using this maple leaf design, second coin in our series of coloured maple leaves-this year: green.
