Double-incuse coin a new Royal Canadian Mint first
After selling more than 200 million ounces since 1988, setting industry standards for purity and security and leading the market as one of the world’s most sought-after silver bullion coins, the Royal Canadian Mint’s Silver Maple Leaf (SML) is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
In honour of this milestone, the Mint is issuing two 30th-anniversary versions of its iconic one-ounce silver bullion coin. The coins’ reverses are inspired by the theme of its signature maple leaf design: one incorporates an intricate engraving of the signature maple leaf reverse design intertwined with the numeral ”30″ while the other features a Mint-first double-incuse engraving of both the maple leaf reverse and Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy on the obverse.
AVAILABLE SOON IN SINGLES & 500-COIN BOXES
Both of these anniversary issues will be available soon.
“Our Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin has been a standard bearer from its very beginnings, starting with its 99.99 per cent purity and, most recently, leading-edge security such as Bullion DNA anti-counterfeiting technology,” said Chris Carkner, vice-president of sales at the Mint.
SOUGHT-AFTER BULLION COIN
“We are proud of the market leadership the Silver Maple Leaf has achieved over the last 30 years and are excited to launch two anniversary products which embody the same qualities that have made it one of the world’s favourite silver bullion coins.”
Like the 99.99 per cent pure SML bullion coin that they honour, both anniversary coins have a finish consisting of an array of precisely machined radial lines. Their reverses feature a micro-engraved security mark in the shape of a maple leaf containing the number “18” to denote their year of issue.
These coins, to be offered in low mintages, bear a $5 face value and will be available as singles or in a 500-coin monster box.
