Maple: The Tree of Hope
Thousands of years ago, Canada's aboriginal people cherished the maple for its wondrous delicacy that hailed the warming days of spring. Centuries later, the Europeans treasured the maple for its wood that enabled them to build their homes and find comfort in the warmth of its flame. Today, the challenges may have changed, but the maple's message remains the same. It is a beacon for Canada's newest generation of immigrants, inspiring them to believe in their dreams and find hope in the shade of a maple tree.
The lovely Silver Maple Leaf of Hope coin contains 1 oz of .9999-fine Silver and comes to you in a box with a red velvet clamshell-style presentation case complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity!
