Product Description

This immersive viewing experience, struck in 2 troy ounces of pure silver with full color, allows you to step into the Canadian sugar maple forest and gaze up at the beauty of the canopy far overhead. Low mintage, too - get yours soon!

Investment Opportunity!Standing tall in the eastern forests, the sugar maple is as hardy as the people it represents. Canada’s arboreal emblem is magnificent in the summer, when branches that have weathered wild winds and cold winters reach ever higher into the sky. Its broad leaves form a dense canopy that filters the sun’s warm rays on your coin’s design, allowing light to spill down through the gaps and create an inspiring view from the ground.

An Original Work of Art!
Designed by artist Emily Damstra, the design showcases the picturesque beauty of the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum) on a bright summer day. The unique perspective creates the impression of standing at the base of an iconic sugar maple tree and looking up at the aged trunks and branches that reach ever higher into the cloudless sky. Inspired by the natural phenomenon of crown shyness, the colored maple canopy is marked by thin borders of light that form a distinctive shape among the leaves, where the shine of a proof finish stands in for sunlight.

Crown shyness is a natural phenomenon that occurs when the crowns of closely spaced trees (often of the same species) do not touch each other. Instead, a thin border of light forms around each tree’s upper foliage, dividing the canopy into fragments. One theory suggests that this type of gap is formed when branches sway in the wind, collide, and then break.
