Description

Unchanged since the very first issue in 1988, the solitary maple leaf that adorns the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin is widely regarded as a symbol for unparalleled artistry, craftsmanship and value. This signature design is given the royal treatment on a 2 oz. fine silver coin, as the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the 30th anniversary of one of the world's most sought-after bullion offerings.

This large-sized numismatic piece honours 30 years of history through its enhanced re-creation of the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin. The reverse features the now-iconic image of a single maple leaf, whose superb shine and intricately etched details have remained unchanged since the SML's debut in 1988. As an added commemorative element, a gold-plated scroll banner is gently wrapped around the base of the leaf; it bears the engraved words "30 YEARS/ANS", which are centrally positioned between the dates "1988" and "2018". The gold-plated rim on the reverse and obverse adds a luxurious gleam to the overall design, while the field is filled with a repeating pattern of a micro-sized maple leaf with the number "30". This background pattern echoes one of the SML's security features, and its unique way of diffracting light results in a hologram-like effect that adds to the beauty of this extraordinary keepsake. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

DOUBLING UP ON SILVER: The signature symbol of Canada, the iconic maple leaf is exquisitely engraved in 2 ounces of .9999 fine silver, double the silver of the actual bullion coin.
