Hardy like the people it represents, the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) is adept at surviving in a variety of soils; but it needs rain to help it flourish as a celebrated part of this nation’s natural heritage. This fine silver coin showcases the dazzling colours of a Canadian icon while highlighting the importance of water as a life-sustaining element throughout Canada’s varied landscapes.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan combines artistry with technical precision to convey the serenity and peacefulness of an autumn day in Canada. A babbling brook winds its way through this tranquil woodland setting, where the gently rippled surface of the water beckons the viewer to explore its rock-lined edge. True to its appearance in nature, the autumn colours of the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum) on the reverse design are breathtaking, where the selective application of colour immediately draw the eyes towards the red and golden foliage above the stream. One can almost hear the cadence of a gentle rain falling onto the leaves and rolling off their serrated tips, as beautifully conveyed by the glittering, raindrop-shaped Swarovski® crystal.
