Climate change, pollution, and garbage are all having negative impacts on some of the most pristine places in the world. Though we may not see it in our daily lives, garbage on beaches, rainforests on fire, and droughts wreaking havoc are changing the landscape around the world for the worse.
The Save the World Edition Four Seasons Coin Set includes special obverse designs for these coins that replace the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II with colorized photographic images of four different ecosystems around the world. On each coin, you will notice a small snapshot of how each ecosystem should look, while the background field offers up the unfortunate reality of changing climate patterns in each of those regions.
On the obverse of 2020 Silver Canadian Maple Leafs in this collection are four unique designs. A tropical beach, African savannah, polar icecap, and jungle rainforest are represented in the designs. You will notice, for example, that the polar icecap coin depicts in its smaller snapshot a mother with her young cubs on large ice flows and deep snowpacks. The harsh reality in some lower regions of the Arctic is featured in the background as a polar bear has but a small block of ice to get out of the water on.
The reverse face of all 2020 Silver Canadian Maple Leafs in this set includes the iconic sugar maple leaf design from Walter Ott. Rather than its usual brilliant silver finish, each coin has its own distinctive colorization to capture a different season. The spring coin shows the promise of new life with a bright green leaf. The summer coin exudes warmth in its dark green colorization. The autumn coin shows maturity in its red, while the winter coin shows the end of the leaf’s life cycle in brown.
These 2020 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Save the World Edition Four Seasons Coin Sets are available with each coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The four coins are packaged together in a natural wooden box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
