A single, golden maple leaf!A Visual Feast For The Eyes!
Artist Tami Mayrand presents a symbolic homage to Canada through the classic images that broadly define what it means to be Canadian. Each engraved icon represents a Canadian theme or idea. United by an application of red paint, together they form the distinctive silhouette of a predominant Canadian symbol: the maple leaf.

Within this majestic maple leaf, Canada's definitive geography, flora and fauna are well represented by various symbols and icons: a mountain peak; small maple leaves; pine cones; an evergreen tree; birds in flight; a wolf; a moose; polar bear; squirrel; sea lion; bear; bison; a Canadian Inuit or Alaskan Husky dog; and the national symbol, the beaver.

A blade of wheat and a bottle of maple syrup highlight some of Canada’s most famous agricultural exports, while a hatchet alludes to the forests that have shaped the nation’s history. Inukshuks and a tepee pay tribute to the history and richly varied cultural traditions of Canada’s Native American peoples, while a schooner, whale tail, salmon, and orca are a nod to Canada’s coasts.

Canada’s innovative spirit is well represented by an icon of the aeronautic industry, and the CN Tower that defines Toronto’s skyline. Also prominent is Canadians' love for the great outdoors, and the pastimes they enjoy through the seasons, as illustrated by: snowflakes; a snowman; a curling stone; a snowmobile; sprig of holly; a canoe; a Muskoka or Adirondack chair; figure skates; winter gear; and ski equipment. A puck, helmet and skate are included to reflect a nation’s fervent passion for its national winter sport, including a hockey stick that forms the maple leaf’s petiole. The obverse also includes the engraved word CANADA, the commemorative dates “1867-2017” and the official Canada 150 privy mark.
