Description of obverse and reverse
Canadian artist Margaret Best has created a breathtaking design of a maple tree at its springtime best. Its dynamic and unexpected viewpoint begins at the base of the trunk and leads the eye upwards towards the tree’s magnificent canopy beautifully enhanced in vivid hues of springtime green. A branch in the foreground provides the added perspective to bring the maple leaf’s distinctive shape into view. Texture and tonal detailing in the trunk, branches and leaves emphasize the sense of height and depth in this innovative design. Expertly crafted in 99.99% pure silver and enhanced with vibrant hues of green to bring the true beauty of maple’s springtime foliage to light.
A brief annotation
Every season has its gifts, but none explodes with life quite like spring. It is one of Canada’s most exciting seasons simply for its explosion of fresh new life. The land seems to change by the hour as new buds and leaves burst forth to soak up the sun. The air is fresh and full of life. Yet, one of spring’s most spectacular sights is a towering maple tree with its canopy of fresh, vivid leaves. Open your eyes and savour the vivid colours. Listen to the lively chatter and song. Feel the pulse of life flowing through the maple’s majestic trunk and breathe in the crisp, fresh scents of spring.
