CANADIAN CANOPY: THE MAPLE LEAF. Canadas arboreal emblem is magnificent in the summer, when its broad leaves form a dense canopy that filters the suns warm rays. Fine silver coin is a beautiful invitation to step into a Canadian maple grove on the reverse, where sunlight spills down through the foliage and creates an inspiring view from the ground. The reverse image by artist Emily Damstra showcases the picturesque beauty of the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum) on a bright summer day. The unique perspective creates the impression of standing at the base of an iconic Canadian tree, and looking up at the engraved trunks and branches that reach ever higher into the cloudless sky. Inspired by the natural phenomenon of crown shyness, the coloured maple canopy is marked by thin borders of light that form a distinctive shape among the leaves, where the shine of a proof finish stands in for sunlight. The reverse includes the engraved word CANADA. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. AN IMMERSIVE VIEWING EXPERIENCE: The reverse pulls the viewer into the summer scene by creating the impression of standing beneath the towering maple trees and looking up at the vaulted canopy of leaves overhead. INSPIRED BY A NATURAL PHENOMENON: The design purposely highlights the summer beauty of the classic sugar maple, with an added patriotic touch. OUR BIGGEST CANOPY YET: This coins 50mm diameter makes it the largest of all our Canopy-themed coins to date. A STUNNING MIX OF ENGRAVING AND COLOR: While finely detailed engraving adds life-like texture to the tree trunks and branches, the coins polished surface stands in for sunlight shining down between the coloured foliage.
