The Silver Maple Leaf's (SML) namesake design perfectly embodies the pride and beauty of Canada, and when enhanced with new engraving techniques and/or technologies-as it is on this showstopper-it also represents our endless spirit of innovation. This is our first ever 5 oz. An elevated take on a treasured classic, this gorgeous showpiece boasts an extraordinary relief height of 3 mm on its reverse, resulting in a more dimensional rendering of the iconic maple leaf than ever before.
Behind the scenes, there's a personal connection, too: the relief was sculpted by retired Senior Engraver Susan Taylor, who previously worked under the tutelage of the late Walter Ott, creator of this world-famous leaf portrait. Elevating a classic: The SML, now in ultra-high relief.This is the first ultra-high relief (UHR) 5 oz. Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin ever issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. Of 99.99% pure silver, this premium collectible offers a more dimensional view of the SML's namesake leaf than ever before. The reverse features a peak relief height of 3 mm-that's significantly higher than the standard 0.80 mm you'd normally see on a piece this size (65.25 mm). The relief was sculpted by retired RCM Senior Engraver Susan Taylor, who worked under the tutelage of the late Walter Ott, RCM Master Engraver and creator of the GML/SML design.
Set against a frosted field, the ultra-high relief dazzles thanks to a mirror-like shine that reflects maximum light.
