How many maple leafs do you count? 110? 120? 125? Or more? The Mint says that there are over 100 in this unique tableau by Royal Canadian Mint engraver José Osio! This artist has continued the exceptional design craftsmanship for which the RCM is known with this unique, translucent green enameled maple leaf, both created by and surrounded by a myriad of mini minion maple leafs! No legends are present on this obverse, to preserve the singular impact of the design. Struck in one troy ounce of pure silver, as you would expect of a Silver Maple Leaf, the low mintage limit of just 7,500 (and even-lower price point) virtually assure a fast sell out! A very quick sell out at the Mint is expected!

Investment Note - Last year, when the first, Red Enamel Maple was announced, the Royal Canadian Mint has not released a new Enameled coin since 2010. All previous sold out quickly. With its vibrant green enamel, larger format, iconic theme and even lower mintage this year (only 7,500), we highly recommend this one troy ounce, pure silver proof finish maple leaf! A fast sell out at the Mint is expected!

A branch of beautiful red, orange & yellow maple leaves in the autumn or fall - leaf. For investment-minded coin collectors, we note the low mintage limit of just 7,500 - far lower than the annual mintage for any standard edition specimen finish Silver Maple, and lower even than last year's Red Enamel Maple Impression! This ensures that this one troy ounce, pure silver proof finish maple leaf will be difficult to locate in years to come.

The Maple Leaf Forever - Symbol of a Nation's Spirit
From backpackers in Berlin to peacekeepers in Pakistan, Canadians are immediately identifiable by a singular image they faithfully sport on pins, badges, and appliqués: the maple leaf. This botanical symbol has represented Canada and Canadians for nearly three hundred years.

Historians generally recognize the adoption of the maple leaf by Quebec’s Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Montreal in 1836 as the first official use of the symbol to represent an element of Canadian culture. The symbol was soon popularized in print, song, and in the small emblems (such as lapel pins) with which Canadian residents of various origins honored their homelands. The English had their roses, the Scots their thistle, the Irish their shamrocks, and the French their fleur-de-lis - but native-born Canadians quickly chose the sturdy yet ornate maple leaf.

The idea of including the maple leaf on Canada’s national flag took root with Lester B. Pearson in World War I, when he noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, in 1965, under his leadership as prime minister, Canada’s famous red-and-white maple leaf flag was born.

In addition to the maple leaf’s presence on various provincial flags and coats of arms, the country’s coinage has featured maple leaves, wreaths, and boughs in various forms for most of Canada’s history. In fact, the maple leaf was present on all Canadian coins from 1876 to 1901. Since that time, it has always appeared on Canadian pennies, and numerous other Canadian numismatic coins.
