2016 Maple Leaf Silhoutte Canadian Geese 15.67g Silver
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 Canada Goose is steadfast and strong, and fiercely loyal with breeding pairs remaining together for life.
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.
