PREVIOUS COIN IN SERIES SOLD OUT! Add to your stunning Maple Leaves in Motion collection! Order today!

Never before have we applied two platings to the same coin using selective intricate plating technology. Our beloved maple leaf takes centre stage in gold plate that pops against the black rhodium that fills the entire background with a dark, fluid transparency—even the finest details shine through! Two more maple leaves round out this spectrum of precious metals with the cool shine of pure silver. This coin is a long-standing favourite among collectors, but with this year's double-plating breakthrough, it's bolder and more beautiful than ever—a work of art in its own right anyone would be proud to own!

"I wanted to showcase the maple leaf in a totally new way, and experimented by drawing white over black. I had seen the Mint's coins with black rhodium, and was pleasantly surprised when they applied it here, plus gold plating. It's beautiful!" Joel Kimmel, Illustrator

Design:
A gold-plated maple leaf is the commanding focal point of this striking design that also features black rhodium plating to deliver a stunning contrasting effect. The central gold leaf overlaps two silver maple leaves at its base, while a background of finely engraved maple leaves is visible through the black rhodium plating. Maple sprigs and buds in solid black serve as a filigree ornamentation that frames the leaves within the circumference of the coin. Designed by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel. The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt in silver with the background leaf pattern and black rhodium plating filling the remainder of the field.

"I've wanted to combine gold plate with black rhodium for a long time, but having two metals bump up against each other in this way is a huge technical challenge. Our team, combined of engineers and the sole engraver Eric Boyer, rose to the occasion and the result is more breathtaking than I could have imagined." Matt Eggink, Product Manager

Did you know…
  • Black rhodium is a rare member of the platinum group of metals. It is uniquely dark and shiny, and has traditionally been valued by jewellers for the avant-garde impact it can bring to engraved designs.
  • 10 native maple species grow throughout Canada, but the National Flag features the leaf from the sugar maple, the best source for Canada's world-renowned syrup. Maple syrup was a staple in Indigenous communities. Algonquian people collected sap in birchbark baskets (makak) before transferring it to 380 L moose-skin reservoirs.
  • Like the three metals of this coin that range from light to very dark, maple syrup has its own colour spectrum. The darker the colour, the stronger the taste. Gold syrups are the classic treat for pancakes and desserts, amber is best for cooking, while very dark maple syrup is used as a commercial ingredient. 

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a beautiful red-lacquered collector's case and encapsulated in a black beauty box.
