2013 $20 Canadian Maple Canopy - Spring (#1) Fine Silver (No Tax)

This coin is the first in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new series showcasing Canada's magnificent maple trees from an entirely new and unique perspective, adding creative interest to this ever-popular Canadian icon.

This coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 38 millimetres and a metal weight of 31.39 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra presents the classic Canadian maple from a novel angle, looking upward at the trunk and tree canopy from below.

The lower half of the reverse image is dominated by the gnarled trunk of a massive maple tree. Its thick branches reach upward and outward toward the canopy which, in the perspective of the image, appears in the distant background against the sky. Trunk, branches, and leaves are rendered in textural and tonal detail to reinforce the image's sense of height and depth.

The design fills the entire reverse field and is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '20 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
