An incredible first in the history of the Royal Canadian Mint! This fine silver coin is uniquely shaped as a beautiful maple leaf, an impressive achievement in minting. The dies used for this coin necessitated an exacting minting process, including the use of specialized equipment to shape the dies.
This coin is presented in a special wooden case complete with a viewing window in the lid. Limited mintage of only 15,000 coins. Obverse: The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II appears in the middle of the leaf.
Reverse: The familiar shape of a maple leaf-specifically that of the silver maple (Acer saccharinum) species. Here, the coin's unique shape accentuates the palmate leaf's beautifully serrated edges.
An intricate series of deep veins are rendered with finely detailed engraving, as they run through each of the leaf's five pointed, tapering lobes. A stunning, one-of-a-kind addition to any collection. This coin exemplifies the Royal Canadian Mint's continuing spirit of innovation, along with the remarkable craftsmanship and artistry for which it is internationally renowned.
