Description

Introduced in 1988, the Royal Canadian MintÕs Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin remains one of the most recognized and sought-after investment pieces in the world. This selectively rose gold-plated quartet is a tribute to the SMLÕs solitary maple leaf as a true mark of excellence, one that wordlessly signifies quality craftsmanship and incomparable value for both collectors and investors.

This quartet pays tribute to 30 years of history through its creative take on the idea of a fractional set. Each of the four fine silver coins is square-shaped, and features a ÒfractionÓ of a reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc. When placed together to form a larger square, the four reverse images come together as one: a sugar maple leaf (Acer saccharum), whose likeness has graced the reverse of the Royal Canadian MintÕs Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin since 1988. A reverse proof finish and selective rose gold plating colourfully enhance the elegance and brilliance of the engraved leaf, which is near life-like thanks to the precise rendering of fine details such as the leafÕs deeply etched veins. Also engraved on the reverse are the commemorative years Ò1988Ó and Ò2018Ó, the word ÒCANADAÓ, and a Ò9999 AgÓ purity notation. The obverse features the rose gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The setÕs limited mintage (6,500), its theme, and its beautifully artistic design will make this quartet a sought-after collectibleÑorder today!
