This 2011 $10 pure silver coin is a trilogy of beautifully engraved maple leaves inspired by the airy design that has graced Canada’s one-cent circulation coin since 1937. It is sized as an affordable version of the “sold-out” Fine Silver One-Kilo Maple Leaf Forever Coin. Mintage is 100,000 coins. HST/GST exempt.
Specimen finish! A three-fold combination of different finishes. The design (relief or raised area) includes both brilliant and mirrored surfaces and the background (field) are striated using laser etching that results in a matte finish. The distinctive shape of the red maple leaf immediately says, “Canada” to people around the world. Its use as a symbol for all that is Canadian, dates back centuries, but historians generally recognize 1836 as the year when the maple leaf earned its status as an official national emblem. A great way to own and cherish a treasured symbol of Canada.
