DESIGN
The reverse image by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features two sugar maple leaves. Pointing downward, the overlapping leaves are attached by their stems to a single twig at the top of the image. The leaves are engraved with careful precision using a variety of textures to lend depth to the image. The reverse is engraved with the words “CANADA” the date “2016” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS”. The obverse design features the fourth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to appear on Canadian coinage in 2003, when she was 77 years old. The effigy is reminiscent of that of her father, His Majesty King George VI, who acceded to the throne in his later years and also chose to be portrayed not wearing the Crown. It is encircled with the Latin legend “ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA,” which means “Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen.”
