2011 Canadian $15 Maple of Happiness Proof 1 oz Silver & Hologram Coin

 

Maple of Happiness

The pursuit of a more prosperous, happier life has produced a strong Chinese presence throughout Canada, its ancient culture infusing Canadian cities with vibrant customs and traditions.

Happiness is one of China’s great blessings symbolized by numerous animals and plants. One of the most potent symbols is the magpie (xi que). Its name translates directly to the bird of happiness. Two magpies are often depicted together at weddings to express a wish for 'double happiness.'

The lotus flower is another visual and auditory symbol for happiness. The pronunciation of its name (lian) sounds identical to the word 'continuous.' Hence, the use of lotus flowers in design represents prolonged happiness, luck and success.

 

Features

- Canadian artist Simon Ng has created a beautiful design featuring a magpie, China’s “Bird of Happiness,” flying above a tapestry of lotus flowers, with a selective hologram of a maple leaf at its centre.
- Part of the Royal Canadian Mint’s stunning Hologram Maple Series celebrating the history and traditions of Canada’s Chinese communities.
- Unique selective hologram and captivating style make this an excellent addition to any collection.
- Low mintage of 8,888 coins worldwide also reflects the Chinese cultural importance of the number '8' as a token of good fortune.
