This Canadian Collage Proof Silver Coin's reverse design by artist Caitlin Lindstrom-Milne features several engraved maple leaves in the breeze; these form a backdrop to a larger maple leaf, which gives shape to a colour-over-engraved collage of iconic Canadian landscapes and fauna. These famous sights are, clockwise from top: the aurora borealis; the Canadian Rocky Mountains; a forest in autumn; Niagara Falls; the red cliffs of Prince Edward Island; wheat fields representing the Prairie Provinces; Arctic glaciers; and a quiet lake setting. The animals from Canada’s circulation coins (the caribou, beaver, polar bear and loon) are also depicted in their natural habitat, while the bottom of the design is edged with wildflowers—bunchberry (Cornus canadensis), fireweed (Chamerion angustifolium) and the western red lily (Lilium philadelphicum). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
