Product Description

How cool is this? The Royal Canadian Mint is the most innovative mint in the world, and proves it with its first ever convex Maple Leaf Forever kilogram with full proof finish, housed in a solid maple wood presentation case! Tiny mintage of just 500, too!

Investment Opportunity!In Canadian iconography, no image is as powerful or illustrious as the beloved maple leaf. Beautiful by nature, its pointed lobes and sharp, irregular teeth give it a shape that is as distinctive as the people it represents, for the maple leaf is the symbol of Canada - the emblem of a nation, the cherished representative of all things Canadian. The Royal Canadian Mint continues its tradition of innovation by celebrating a national icon with the largest convex coin yet: a one full kilo, 99.99% pure silver proof!

Fabulous Design!
Designed by artist Stan Witten, senior engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint, this innovative convex-shaped coin features an engraved grouping of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves of different sizes, all positioned to form a unique bouquet of foliage. Together, the five leaves are radiant against the highly reflective shine of the field’s proof finish, yet each one is set apart by a different finish that creates a gentle contrast. This gathered arrangement makes full use of the coin’s expansive surface and unusual curvature. Extending out towards the viewer for a more dimensional presentation, the iconic Canadian symbol appears to swell with the collective pride of a nation.
