Maple Leaf
The maple leaf is the characteristic leaf of the maple tree, and is the most widely recognized national symbol of Canada. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the settlements located in New France had attained a population of about 18,000. By this time, the maple leaf had been adopted as an emblem by the French Canadians along the Saint Lawrence River. Since 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint has produced gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bullion coins, which are officially known as Maple Leafs, as geometric maple leaves are stamped on them.

The coin reverse features two Canada geese and a maple leaf that come together seamlessly in this clever design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant that takes full advantage of the coin’s unique sculpted shape to position two geese within the lobes of the leaf. Every detail of the geese is visible, from the beautiful plumage of their wings to their signature white cheeks. This design is a quintessential Canadian scene of waterfowl feeding in the shallow water at the edge of a pond or lake. Ripples in the water enhance the leaf’s texture while a branch in the background doubles as the leaf’s veins. On the reverse face, the inscriptions: “10 Dollars” - face value and “2016” - year of issue. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the issue country – “Canada”.
