2017 Celebrating Canada's 150th - 10 Ounce $50 Silver Maple Leaf

Canada 2017 Celebrating Canada's 150th - Magnificent Maple Leaves $50 10 Troy Ounce Pure Silver Maple Leaf SML Brilliant Uncirculated Radial Lines Security Specimen FinishCelebrating Canada's 150th Anniversary
Magnificent Maple Leaves 10 Oz Silver Maple

Investment Opportunity!It's been nearly 20 years since the Royal Canadian Mint issued a 10 troy ounce pure silver maple leaf - and this one celebrates the Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation! Get this HUGE national symbol of Canada with two state-of-the-art, enhanced technology security features!

Replacing the basic specimen bullion finish found on earlier Silver Maple Leaf coins, the radial lines in this oversized silver maple's fields have been precisely machined to within microns on the master tooling to ensure reproducibility from die to die and coin to coin. The uniqueness of the line width and pitch gives this beauty a characteristic look, creating a light diffracting pattern that is specific to this coin. Combined with a new visual security feature (a textured maple leaf privy mark, micro-engraved with laser technology on a small area of the maple side, with the numeral “17” denoting the coin’s year of issue), this new, huge 2017 10 troy ounce pure silver SML represents the cutting edge in both security and value!

A 10 Troy Ounce Silver Maple? Really? This is a truly rare opportunity to own a 10 oz silver maple leaf. When will another be struck - another 20 years down the road? Our advice? Get in on the ground floor and lock up one (or more) of these babies now!

Retail Price $299.95 - SALE Price Only $249.95 Each!

2017 Pysanka Traditional Ukrainian Easter Egg $20 Silver Proof with Color

Canada 2017 Pysanka Traditional Ukrainian Easter Egg $20 Pure Silver Proof Egg-Shaped Coin with Color2017 Pysanka Traditional Ukrainian Egg
$20 Egg Shaped Silver Proof
Sold OutGet this second ever egg-shaped coin from Canada! Celebrate spring and Easter with this Pysanka, a traditional Ukrainian Easter Egg, minted in pure silver with gorgeous vibrant color and a tiny mintage limit of just 5,000! Sold out at the Mint almost instantly!

A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", because the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax. In the early 20th century, the art of the pysanka was carried abroad by Ukrainian emigrants to North America, where the custom took hold. Concurrently, the traditional was banished (as a religious practice) by the Soviet regime in the Ukraine itself, where it was nearly forgotten. Museum collections were destroyed both by war and by Soviet thugs. Since Ukrainian independence in 1991, there has been a rebirth of this folk art in its homeland, and a renewal of interest in the preservation of traditional designs and research into its symbolism and history.

Unique Opportunity! Already Sold Out at the Mint, and with an extremely limited mintage of just 5,000, this reasonably-priced beauty will be sought after for generations! The first sold out at the Mint in record time as well, and is now worth many multiples of its issue price!

Canada 2017 Great Halifax Explosion of 1917 $100 Gold Proof

2017 Great Halifax Explosion of 1917 $100 Gold ProofGreat Halifax Explosion 1917 $100 Gold Proof
Ammunition Ships Collision - MINTAGE 1,500
Investment Opportunity!The annual $100 Gold Proof for 2017 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917, during the First World War. The extremely low mintage of just 1,500 virtually guarantees a sell-out, just like last year!

It was the largest man-made explosion of the pre-nuclear era. On the morning of December 6, 1917, the Norwegian ship SS Imo and the French ammunition ship SS Mont-Blanc collided as they made their way through Halifax, Nova Scotia’s busy harbor. The impact ignited Mont-Blanc’s explosive cargo, resulting in an catastrophic blast that instantly leveled the entire district, killed almost 2,000 people, and triggered a tsunami.

The gold proof design commemorates the event by combining two powerfully symbolic elements associated with this maritime disaster: the final view of the munitions ship SS Mont-Blanc at the moment she exploded, sailing westward into history; and the melted face of a clock retrieved from the wreckage, its hands forever frozen at the exact moment of the detonation, 9:04 am. To this day, the Halifax Explosion remains one of the worst North American tragedies of all time.

Lowest mintage limit ever for this series - only 1,500! (That's down from 3,000 in 2011!) The $100 Gold Proof Series is highly collected, and this year's edition proudly celebrates the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917 during the First World War! Last year's Great Parliament Fire $100 Gold Proof sold out quickly at the Mint! We therefore recommend this as a buy-and-hold investment and predict another fast sell-out!
