Mini Maple Leaf Studs
Appearing alongside the iconic beaver design by George Edward Kruger Gray (KG), the Canadian nickel incorporates two tiny maple leaves to the left and right above of the beaver. These are the smallest leaves, they are teeny tiny! Each leaf is carefully hand cut from the coin, then soldered to a sterling silver earring post.
