J & M Coin and Jewellery. How many Canada geese do you see in the 2 oz. Pure silver coin's design? They are the telltale signs of fall; of a time when one Canadian icon changes colour and another takes tothe skies.
The second coin in this year'sCanadian Canopy series invites you to step into a maple grove-this time, during Canada's mostcolourful season. A proof finish shines like sunlight between the coloured treetops. The gaps in the foliage are also a tribute: they form the shape of a national symbol known for its fall migration and "honking" farewell, which gives us another reason to look up in awe. Coin that celebrates the sights and sounds of fall!
This is the same size as the first Canadian Canopy coin issued in June 2018.

Designed by artist Emily Damstra, your coin showcases the fall beauty of a classic Canadian maple species, the sugar maple. The view from the base of the trees offersa unique perspective on the engraved trunks and branches as they reach towards sunlight. Inspired by the natural phenomenon of crown shyness, the gaps in the coloured maple canopy reveal a proof finish and form the outline of Canada geese.
The reverse includesthe engraved word "CANADA" and the year "2019". The obverse features the face value "30 DOLLARS" and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The maple isn't the only one toexhibit shyness. Crown shyness occurs with many mature tree species found in our forests, including thelodgepole pine.It is most frequently observed among trees of the same species-but not always. For decades, the maple leaf was at the centre of national debate. While the maple leaf first appeared on our flag in 1965, it was an early contender back in 1896 when the issue of a national flag was first raised. Canada geese aren't necessarily snowbirds. Most northern populations of Canada geese fly south for the winter, but some geese are year-round residents of Canada-especially in our more southern regions.
