Product Description

Celebrate the first-ever ULTRA HIGH RELIEF MEDALLIC 5 Ounce Pure Silver Maple Leaf with an unique, one-year-only-design and a mintage limit of only 2,500!
 
Sold out at the Mint!When Canada introduced the first Silver Maple Leaf in 1988, who knew that these would become the most popular and collected series of Canadian coins in history? Now, twenty-six years later, the mint is again making history with this stunning, ultra high relief, medallic pure silver proof with an unique design of three maple leaves gently drifting on an autumn breeze! The Mint's first five troy ounce SML minted in high relief, this coin features a handsome, one-year-only maple leaf design, commissioned specifically by the Mint from Canadian artist Luc Normandin! Even more significant is the tremendously low mintage limit of only 2,500, creating a exclusive opportunity for the savvy investor! This coin will sell out quickly at the Mint!

Investment Note - Because of the popularity of Silver Maple Leafs, the huge size, and the very low mintage limit, a quick sell out is expected. We recommend immediate action if you wish to secure one of these proof five ouncers for your collection. Do not delay!

A single, golden maple leaf!Unique Ultra High Relief and Medallic Qualities!
This coin features the highest relief the Royal Canadian Mint has achieved on a five troy ounce planchet. Such ultra high relief  requires that each coin be struck multiple times, using enhanced tooling and hand-polished dies developed specifically for the excruciatingly high pressures. The results are truly stunning: the exceptional sculptural qualities of high relief, an age-old technique normally reserved for large medals and medallions. The maple leaves on this coin literally rise from the coin’s surface, like sculptures.

The Orange Sugar Maple
Orange_Maple.jpg The pride and joy of maple syrup producers in Vermont, Ontario and Quebec (but present as far east as Nova Scotia and as far south as the state of Georgia), the Orange Sugar Maple (Acer Saccarum) is recognized around the world as the source of the sweetest, clearest maple syrup. It takes a great deal of work to produce this tree’s sweet, golden bounty: one quart (one liter) of syrup requires boiling down 10 gallons (40 liters) of sap!

A large-leafed, long-lived tree that often tops 115 feet (35 m) in height, the sugar maple can live for 200 years! The shape of its five-lobed leaf is recognizable around the world; a stylized version of its leaf is found at the center of the Canadian maple leaf flag!

Autumn in a forest dominated by sugar maples is an extraordinary sight. Intense rainbows of yellow, orange, red, and purple seem to set the countryside aflame in regions where sugar maples grow. Native American peoples were long attracted to the sugar maple for its savory sap, sweet flowers, and close-grained hardwood.

But the leaves and sap are not the only prized features of the Sugar Maple. Sugar Maple wood is exceptionally hard, making it a material of choice for furniture-makers and producers of hardwood flooring, as well as makers of other notable products, including bowling pins and alley floors, basketball courts, baseball bats, violins, guitars, and drums.
