Canada 2017 Kaleidoscope of Canadiana #3 - Maple LeafAn Otherworldly, Psychedelic Design!
The design by Canadian Calder Moore has created a full-sized kaleidoscope design for the coin’s extra-large surface. Countless maple leavesin myriad sizes come together in a complex pattern of amazing beauty. Fiery leaves lead the eye towards the center while many, many more fill the still-green canopy above. It’s a beautiful portrayal of the maple’s annual spectacle as its leaves turn from green to shades of red, orange, yellow and gold. Rendered with vibrant color, it has the added effect of light streaming through the design.
