The caribou and the maple leaf are the defining images of a nation: one is a national icon and a symbol of Canadas North, the other predates the flag as an emblem of this land, its people, and our hope for the future. The Royal Canadian Mint reflects on a nations 150-year journeyand beyondthrough the fusion of two iconic symbols that continue to inspire admiration by proudly representing all that is Canada. Our second selectively gold-plated, fine silver piedfort! Almost twice as thick as a standard 1 oz. A distinctly Canadian celebration: Two proud national symbols the caribou and the maple leaf combine to represent Canadas past, present and future in one outstanding design that fuses traditional imagery with contemporary depictions. The reverse features an outstanding level of detail, as seen in the texture of the caribous fur and the maple leafs veins. The use of selective gold plating adds elegance and an extra layer of dimension that allows the maple leaf and the rim to be admired individually or collectively as part of the overall design. The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc pays tribute to Canadas evolving history through the two foremost national icons. A transition marks the centre of the field, with classic depictions on the left to represent the nations past, and more contemporary versions on the right to represent both the present and beyond. Both icons are resplendent on this coin. Foremost is the caribou, the majestic animal that symbolizes Canadas north. Its back half is texturally detailed, while the front portion transitions into a stylized silhouette that offers a more modern take on this Canadian icon. Behind it is the iconic maple leaf, whose serrated edges and deeply veined lobes are fixtures throughout the design. The left features a more natural and life-like appearance that evokes the reverse of the beloved Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin, while the right portion places a strong emphasis on symmetry and conveys a sense of strength. Also featured on the reverse are the engraved word CANADA, the face value 25 DOLLARS and the year 2018. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
