The year 2018 marked the 30th anniversary of our iconic Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin—the standard against which other silver bullion coins are measured. This very special numismatic release includes a Royal Canadian Mint first: incuse-struck images on both sides of the coin. Mintage is limited to 6,500. HST/GST exempt.
The reverse features Walter Ott’s iconic maple leaf design from the original Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin release in 1988. The realistic sugar maple leaf is incuse-struck into the surface of the coin. The reverse features the words “CANADA” and “FINE SILVER 1OZ ARGENT PUR” as well as the purity standard of “9999”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Her Majesty’s image is incuse-struck. The obverse features the date “2018” and the face value of “20 DOLLARS.”
The coin also bears commemorative edge lettering with the number “30” flanked on both sides by a maple leaf. This coin commemorates the 30th year of the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin’s production.
