Canada Maple Leaf Opal is a collectible coin specially minted from the Royal Canadian Mint, according to the five-dollar Silver Maple Leaf Bullion Coin, designed for connoisseurs of impeccable art. Its 99.99% silver composition makes it one of the best official bullion coins in the world.
The improved design of the coin is issued with the obverse, which depicts the iconic maple leaf, the national symbol of Canada. It represents the "precise" radial lines emanating from the center of the coin on both the front and back sides. The separate maple leaf is made of multicolored opal, expressing almost every color of the visible spectrum. In Ancient Rome, it was believed that this stone could bring good fortune and happiness. Pliny the Elder, describing the beauty of the stone's color, wrote that they combines the living fire of the ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, and all glittering together in an incredible mixture of light." Laser micro-engraving on a small part of the back of the coin adds a textured maple leaf, inside which there is a number "18", indicating the year of issue of the coin, and visible only when enlarged. This is a unique security element that has been introduced on Canadian coins since 2012.
Canada is a monarchical state, so the symbolization of the form of government is reflected in coins and banknotes. The reverse of Canada Maple Leaf Opal invariably bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II.
The background of the coin is bright red, corresponding with opal shimmering maple leaf.
