Careful sculpting and finely detailed engraving capture the natural beauty of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves in all their intricate beauty.A true-to-life recreation of the leaf's silhouette, the coin's unusual shape provides a fitting canvas for this celebration of a Canadian icon, whose irregular edges and five palmate lobes have been painstakingly replicated through a labour-intensive process.

The scattered positioning of these leaves deliberately evokes an autumn day, when the leaves have softly tumbled to cover the ground.

Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins.
Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered.
Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may result in one side being slightly out of focus. Please review all of the photos provided to obtain the best understanding of the coin's actual appearance.
Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting.
