Product Description

Gold maples are always popular, and this gem will be no exception! With a mintage of just 1,500, extremely affordable price, and sporting 5 different iconic animals of the Arctic, the Symbols of the North Gold Maple Leaf is a must-have!

Investment Opportunity!Far from a barren land of snow and ice, the Canadian Arctic is home to a beautifully diverse wildlife that embodies the spirit of this region. Species such as the polar bear and narwhal are uniquely adapted to life in this often-harsh environment, where they have long played a role in the culture and survival of Indigenous communities. Symbols of strength, beauty and resilience, the animals of the North are the proud emblems of our Arctic region, and are among Canada’s most cherished and widely recognized icons. This gold coin is a celebration of Canada’s North, represented by wildlife that ties together land, sea and sky.

A quick sell out at the Mint is anticipated.

The Majestic Maple
Orange_Maple.jpg To perch on a moss-covered boulder in the heart of the woods, lean against the broad trunk of a towering sugar maple, and gaze up at the green vault above: this is to experience the Canadian forest at its finest. Idling away a few careless moments in the presence of this wise old species allows us to journey backward in our own memories, to explore a daydreamed future, and to rest in the serenity of the present. The maple canopy connects land and sky, shade and light, tree and tree, human and heavens.

In a land dominated by vast woodlands, it is no surprise that the maple is considered a national treasure and symbol of a people. It has played a key role in Canada’s development as a nation. From the earliest Native Americans to the European explorers, the settlers and, ultimately, those who manage today’s forestry and tourism industries, Canadians have always found the maple to be a beautiful and important resource.

For approximately 200 years, the maple leaf symbol has been associated specifically with Canada and Canadians. In 1965, the maple leaf became the centerpiece of Canada’s most important national emblem - the Canadian flag. On April 25, 1996, the Deputy Registrar of Canada proclaimed the maple tree (genus Acer, representing the 10 species found in Canada) the country’s official arboreal emblem, citing the maple leaf’s historical role as a symbol of national identity, the important part the maple has played in the country’s historical and commercial development, its aesthetic importance to Canadians, and the tree’s role as an important environmentally sustainable economic resource.
