Inspired by the iconic maple leaf design that has graced Canada’s one-cent circulation coin since 1937. You can now own this beautifully engraved design enhanced on ½ oz of 99.99% pure silver. 


A trilogy of maple leaves inspired by the airy design that has graced Canada’s one-cent circulation coin since 1937.

The distinctive shape of the red maple leaf immediately says, “Canada” to people around the world. Its use as a symbol for all that is Canadian dates back centuries; Historians generally recognize the adoption of the maple leaf by Quebec’s Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Montreal in 1836 as the first official use of the symbol to represent an element of Canadian culture. The symbol was soon popularized in print, song, and in the small emblems (such as lapel pins) with which Canadian residents of various origins honored their homelands. The English had their roses, the Scots their thistle, the Irish their shamrocks, and the French their fleur-de-lis - but native-born Canadians quickly chose the sturdy yet ornate maple leaf.

This coin features the uniquely-Canadian "specimen" finish, a three-fold combination of different finishes. The design (raised area or relief) includes both brilliant and mirrored surfaces, while the fields (background) are subtly striated, resulting in a contrasting, matte appearance. No other mint in the world employs the specimen finish.

Graded a perfect 70 by ANACS, America’s oldest grading service, this coin is the the very finest.
