This privately minted 1 oz copper round pays tribute to Canada’s official bullion coin, the Canadian Maple Leaf.

Displayed on the front of the round is Canada’s national symbol, the maple leaf. Although this iconic piece of foliage initially stood for the predominance of maple trees that the first Canadian settler encountered, it soon came to embody Canada’s core ideals of peace and tolerance. From the pattern of its netted veins and the points of its blades, artists have impressively replicated each detail of the original Maple Leaf Coin’s design. They have even engraved the name, “Canada” with the round’s weight and purity in the same position that the coin’s weight and purity used to appear.
While the reverse of the original Maple Leaf Coin might serve as a symbol of Canada’s continued allegiance to the British, the back of the commemorative round speaks to the pride and spirit of the American people with its stylized rendition of the heraldic eagle. The design features a star spangled shield that bears the wings of an eagle. It is depicted in flight, hovering over the abbreviation, “USA” and a scroll. There is also a US flag, which waves above the shield, and a series of six stars, which are positioned to its left and right.
