2006 Canadian $10 Maple Leaf Silhouette: Canada Geese 1/2 oz Pure Silver 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.

 

Features

• UNIQUE DESIGN AND SHAPE! Two Canada geese and a maple leaf come together seamlessly in this clever design that takes full advantage of the coin's unique sculpted shape to position two geese within the lobes of the leaf.
• DETAILED DESIGN! Every detail of the geese is visible, from the beautiful plumage of their wings to their signature white cheeks.
• QUINTESSENTIAL CANADIAN! 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.
• Third maple leaf-shaped coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint.
• Composed of 1/2 oz 99.99% pure silver, this coin is GST/HST exempt.

 

Design

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.
