For our Canadian customers, this coin is GST/HST exempt. The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc draws its inspiration from Canada's national flag, which is seen in the background as it flutters in the wind. From its centre emerges a sugar maple leaf, which served as the original inspiration for the flag's stylized centrepiece. Finely detailed engraving recreates the leaf's five veined lobes and creates a natural, life-like appearance, which is further enhanced by the use of multiple finishing techniques.The adoption of a national flag was proposed as far back as the late nineteenth century, but to no avail - that is, until the idea was raised again in 1964 by Prime Minister Lester B. After much divisive debate, the National Flag of Canada was approved by Parliament in 1964. At the stroke of noon on February 15, 1965, the Canadian Red Ensign (Canada's previous flag) was lowered on Parliament Hill and replaced by the National Flag of Canada!
The official way to describe the flag is by explaining it as a red flag with a white square in its centre, which is adorned with a red maple leaf. The design is symmetrical - if you fold the flag from one red edge to the other, both halves should be the same! Although often assumed to be a sugar maple leaf because of its color, the leaf on the flag is in fact a stylized leaf intended to represent the several species of maple that grow throughout Canada. Now, in a unique twist, the leaf is featured in a design that is inspired by the flag!The sugar maple leaf is depicted emerging from a fluttering flag to fill the centre of the image field. Finely detailed engraving recreates the leaf's veined lobes to give the leaf a natural, life-like appearance that celebrates both the flag and the national symbol! Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clam-shell protected by a black beauty box. Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched.
