Arguably the most popular symbol of Chinese culture and philosophy is the yin yang. The name is often translated as “dark-bright” or “negative-positive,” but the overarching meaning behind the yin-yang symbol depicts the complementary nature of two seemingly-contradictory forces. One swirl with black with a white dot, while the other is white with a dark dot.
The Yin-Yang privy mark featured on these 2016 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Reverse Proof coins originated from Taoism-Daoism in Chinese culture and speaks to a greater sense of duality found in Chinese belief systems.
On the reverse side of the 2016 1 oz Yin Yang Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is the iconic sugar maple leaf design first created by Walter Ott in 1979 for the Gold Maple Leaf coin. Included markings on this face of the coin denote the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin. The Yin Yang privy mark is found below the sugar maple leaf to the left of its stem.
The obverse of the 2016 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Reverse Proof bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Shown in right-profile relief, this portrait of Her Majesty was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt as the fourth-generation image of the Queen on Canadian coins, and just the second from a Canadian artist.
All 2016 1 oz Yin Yang Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins in this listing are reverse proof specimens. A reverse proof coin has strong, frosted matte elements for the background field which are offset by the stunning brilliance of deeply-mirrored, clear elements to the design sets.
