The 2017 Proof Canadian Iconic Canada: Sugar Shack 1/2 oz Silver Coin is a beautiful addition to the collection of coins released by the Royal Canadian Mint. The Canadian Iconic Canada series of coins features some of the scenes that are purely Canadian. This colorized coin, like other colorized silver coins, is a popular choice with collectors and investors both. The coin contains Troy oz of .9999 pure silver and has been issued a face value of $10, backed by the Canadian government.
Spring in Canada is an exciting time of the year, for a number of reasons. Not only does the icy grip of winter finally begin to let go a bit, but in Canada, the maple syrup sap starts to flow. Maple syrup has long been appreciated as a topping for waffles and pancakes, but it has a history that goes back to before Europeans arrived to colonize the land. Canada is the leading nation in the production of maple products, accounting for 71% of the pure maple syrup in the world.
This coin is a colorized proof. The background of the coin is beautifully mirrored, with several aspects of the design being colorized and frosted.
The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian Iconic Canada: Sugar Shack 1/2 oz Silver Coin features the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy was designed by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003. Her Majesty has appeared on Canadian coinage since she ascended to the throne.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian Iconic Canada: Sugar Shack 1/2 oz Silver Coin features the design from Tony Bianco that captures a maple syrup harvest. A child is depicted checking on the tap on a maple tree, while holding a bucket. In the background design, there is a large red barn where the syrup is refined into everybodys favorite pancake topping.
