Description & Design

This silver coin is the sixth in the Royal Canadian Mint’s renowned series of Asian-inspired coins that bear a hologram of a maple leaf. Unique selective hologram and captivating style make this an excellent addition to any collection.

At the centre, two cranes are viewed in profile as they stand with outstretched wings on a grassy mound. The revered birds are flanked by a pair of tortoises at the bottom left of the image, and two chrysanthemums – the flower of immortality – at the right. Stylized flowers that bloom throughout the seasons surround these symbolic elements, thereby extending this blessing for the entire year. The foremost crane’s outstretched wings and neck encircle a selective hologram of a maple leaf above it. The coin's obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
