It has been over 30 years since our Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin made its debut, yet its signature design still resonates with investors and collectors worldwide. In honour of the SML’s 30th anniversary, this exquisite tribute “lifts” the bullion coin’s iconic maple leaf off its engraved reverse and gently deposits it here as a 3D design element. Mintage is limited to 375 coins. HST/GST exempt.
The reverse is adorned with an iconic maple leaf that has been a fixture on the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin since 1988. The engraved surface of the gold coin features a reverse proof finish, along with the words “CANADA” and “30 YEARS/ANS”, the face value “200 DOLLARS” and the double dates “1988-2018” that commemorate the SML’s 30th anniversary. But the star of the coin is the silver-cast maple leaf; highly intricate casting reproduces each lobe’s sharply pointed edges and the deeply imprinted veins that give this undulated leaf a natural look and feel, as though it has gently come to rest after tumbling down from a tree. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
A special celebration to mark the 30-year history of our Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin, whose familiar design is re-imagined in more dimensional detail than ever.
