The Royal Canadian Mint has released its fifth and final 2016 Geometry in Art silver Proof coin, which features a maple leaf motif rendered with polygon shapes. The new issue is composed of one ounce of 99.99% silver, costs $99.95 CAD, and has a mintage limited to 7,500 pieces.
The reverse design features two stylized maple leaves in silver, with an autumnal forest pictured in color in the background. The image is fashioned in what the Mint’s Web site describes as a “low poly art style,” which utilizes geometric shapes to add texture to the various surfaces depicted. This side of the coin was designed by Calder Moore and includes the inscriptions CANADA, 2016, and 20 DOLLARS along the rim.
The obverse features Susanna Blunt’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II with the inscriptions ELIZABETH II and D.G. REGINA, a Latin abbreviation for “By the Grace of God, Queen,” included along the rim.
