2010 $20 Fine Silver Coin - Maple Leaf Crystal Raindrop
The maple is an endless source of beauty throughout the year. People most readily associate it with the breathtaking crimson and gold hues of autumn, but those with an observant eye will also recall the clusters of tiny flowers that burst forth with vibrant freshness every spring and early summer and carpet roads and driveways with drifting yellows and greens as blossoms fall to the ground.
As summer progresses, seeds will form where female flowers once were; winged samaras rotating like tiny propellers as they drift to the ground or when playful hands toss them into the air.
The maple is dynamic; always in perfect harmony with the rhythm of nature. Sun, snow and fertile earth are its inspiration, the life force that creates a world of majesty and beauty through the power of a single water droplet.
