An American Eagle and a Silver Maple Leaf are the two designs featured on the forthcoming Pride of Two Nations - a collaboration between the mints of the United States and Canada.
This first ever joint coin set commemorates the links between the two nations, celebrating their status as allies and neighbours.
The obverse (heads) of the American Eagle One Ounce Silver Coin features Adolph A. Weinman’s full-length figure of Liberty in full stride enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. The coin’s reverse (tails) features a heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.
The obverse of the Canadian One Ounce Silver Maple Leaf Coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt on a radial lines background with a pattern of stars and maple leaves on the perimeter.
The set comes with the first bilingual Certificate of Authenticity produced by the United States Mint and contains a United States Mint American Eagle One Ounce Silver Coin with an enhanced reverse proof finish and a Royal Canadian Mint One Ounce Silver Maple Leaf Coin with a modified proof finish.
