Canada's most revered national emblem shines bright in 99.99% pure silver-and selective gold plating!

Your coin is a fitting way to celebrate Canada through its beloved national emblem-particularly on the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Adding to the complexities of recreating the maple leaf shape, the coin's layers intricate engraving, multiple finishes and stunning gold plating technology-all in one stunning coin that stands as a true feat of engineering! The use of selective gold plating on your coin creates a magnificent contrast between the plated elements and your coin's 99.99% pure silver surface, and further enhances the outstanding craftsmanship. Only a limited number of coins will be made available worldwide. ONE-OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Careful sculpting and finely detailed engraving capture the natural beauty of sugar maple. Leaves in all their intricate beauty. A true-to-life recreation of the leaf's silhouette, the coin's unusual shape provides a fitting canvas for this celebration of a Canadian icon, whose irregular edges and five palmate lobes have been painstakingly replicated through a labour-intensive process. Designed by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel, your coin includes multiple engraved maple leaves that fill the entirety of the reverse. The scattered positioning of these leaves deliberately evokes an autumn day, when the leaves have softly tumbled to cover the ground. While the reverse also features the engraved face value "20 DOLLARS" and the year "2017", the spotlight shines brightly on the three gilded maple leaves that each represent 50 years of Canadian history-a symbolic nod to the 150th anniversary of Confederation. The selective application of gold plating technology further enhances the deeply engraved veining, while giving each leaf a rich golden hue that shines as bright as a sunny autumn day.
