First ever half ounce (сontains 1/2 oz of .9999 fine Silver) maple leaf shaped coin.

The maple leaf is the centrepiece of the Canadian flag and is arguably the nation's most recognized symbol at home and abroad. And, with ten different maple species growing across Canada, there are bound to be maple trees near every lake or pond where Canada geese live. Just like the widespread maple, the Canada goose is another icon that's found from coast to coast, even flying as far north as the Arctic during the summer.

The dies used for this coin necessitated an exacting minting process, including the use of specialized equipment to shape the dies.

This coin is presented in a maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.


The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears in the middle of the leaf.

Dei Gratia Regina (often abbreviated to D. G. Regina and seen as D·G·REGINA) is a Latin title meaning By the Grace of God, Queen.

Artist: Susanna Blunt.



Two Canada geese and a maple leaf come together seamlessly in this clever design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant that takes full advantage of the coin's unique sculpted shape to position two geese within the lobes of the leaf. Every detail of the geese is visible, from the beautiful plumage of their wings to their signature white cheeks. This design is a quintessential Canadian scene of waterfowl feeding in the shallow water at the edge of a pond or lake. Ripples in the water enhance the leaf's texture while a branch in the background doubles as the leaf's veins.
