Product Description

Vibrant full color is further enhanced by a liberal application of 24-karat gold plating on this one troy ounce, pure silver proof to create a phenomenal design - the Tree of Life!

While we celebrate the differences that define our multicultural society, North Americans also revel in the cultural elements we share - particularly those that transcend time, such as the mystical tree of life. The image of a flourishing tree has held different philosophical and spiritual meanings throughout history. Today, this fine silver coin celebrates it as a powerful symbol and a beautiful expression of living a fulfilled life.

An Elaborate, Creative Design - And An Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn offers a beautifully artistic interpretation of a tree of life as a representation of the different aspects of our existence. Spreading out beneath the earth, the gold-plated roots anchor the tree and provide a solid foundation for its trunk, which represents one’s identity and core beliefs. The curled branches that represent growth as an individual strike a golden contrast next to the painted leaves, which represent the fruits of our labor in life. With all of its curved branches and intertwined roots, the complexities of this engraved design necessitate the application of more selective 24-karat gold plating than ever seen before.
