Shipping calculated at checkout.

No other symbol strikes a deep, emotional chord for Canadians than the iconic maple leaf. It has become synonymous with a vast expanse of land, which is filled with stunning sights and places that are as diverse as the nearly 35 million people who call Canada “home.” Now, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the iconic maple leaf — and the rich diversity of all that it represents — with this finely detailed coin.

Special features:
•  This beautiful coin offers a creative portrait of an iconic Canada. It pays tribute to the maple leaf as a national icon and all that it represents–as depicted through the use of symbols that represent Canada and its different regions.
•  This stylized design has been enhanced with 5 different finishes that showcase the dynamic line work and interplay between each element that makes up the maple leaf.
•  This $10 coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver, and features pure gold plating that enhances and highlights the design's intricate details.
•  Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Your coin represents a map-like representation of Canada through the use of symbolism. The maple leaf's outline mimics Canada's geographical shape, stretching out to cover the far reaches of Canada. As though travelling from one coast to another, the Canadian Rocky Mountains and a white-tailed deer in the leaf's left-most point represent the rugged wilderness of the western provinces. Behind the deer, wheat symbolises the grain-growing Canadian prairies. The fishing industry and the Eastern provinces are represented in the right leaf point by a fish, a boat and the famed Peggy's Point Lighthouse. A partial map of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut — home to many of Canada's native peoples — dominates the leaf's middle point, while the Tower of Peace at the base symbolises the government and the tie that binds all Canadians together.

In his first design for the Royal Canadian Mint, Toronto-based artist Kwame Delfish has opted to look beyond the maple leaf as the sole representation of Canada. “The inspiration for my art comes to me as I go through life viewing the world–looking beyond what's directly in front of me.” His use of symbols for each region creates a unique portrait of Canada, and offers an interpretation of what the maple leaf represents when used as a national icon.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
