About the Design: Your coin pays tribute to the original design that graced Canada's early circulation coins. Bound together by a bow at the bottom of the reverse, two crossed maple boughs gently curve upwards along the coin's perimeter. Cutting-edge sculpting and finishing techniques recreate each of the 21 maple leaves in breathtaking detail, as they lead the eye towards a current creation of the Royal Crown (St. Edward's Crown) at the very top. The reverse's text elements offer added authenticity to this nostalgic nod to Canada's past, with the face value "200 DOLLARS," the word "CANADA" and the commemorative dates "1867-2017" all engraved in a similar font and layout as the original Confederation-era coin designs.
