Product Description

An incredible first, with a mintage of just 375! How do you celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Silver Maple Leaf? The Royal Canadian Mint struck a 1 troy ounce, pure gold Maple Leaf coin with reverse proof finish, and then embellished it with a 3-D, pure Silver Maple Leaf charm!

Investment Opportunity!It has been 30 years since the Royal Canadian Mint's Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin made its debut way back in 1988, and its signature design still resonates with collectors and investors worldwide. How do you celebrate the 30th anniversary of the SML? Well, if you're the Royal Canadian Mint, why not strike a 1 troy ounce, pure Gold Maple Leaf coin, and then embellishes it with a Pure Silver Maple Leaf charm?!

That's exactly what the good folks at the Mint did! This exquisite tribute “lifts” the bullion coin’s iconic maple leaf off its engraved field and gently deposits it here as a 3D design element - a pure silver, 3-D charm! This revolutionary beauty is presented in a luxurious, solid wood presentation case, allowing for this national symbol to be displayed with pride. The perfect coin for arborists, nature enthusiasts and maple syrup lovers - as well as all savvy, investment-minded numismatists!

A quick sell out at the Mint is anticipated.

Autumn leavesAn Technological Tour-de-Force!
This revolutionary coin re-imagines the iconic maple leaf that has been a fixture on the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin since 1988. The engraved surface of the gold coin features a reverse proof finish, along with the legends CANADA and 30 YEARS/ANS, the face value 200 DOLLARS and the double dates 1988-2018 that commemorate the SML’s 30th anniversary. But the star of the coin is the silver-cast maple leaf. Highly intricate casting processes reproduce each lobe’s sharply pointed edges and the deeply imprinted veins that give this undulated leaf a natural look and feel, as though it has gently come to rest after tumbling down from a tree. The pure silver charm embellishes an already-outstanding design. Also outstanding is the tiny, tiny mintage limit - just 375, so don't drag your feet on this one!

The Majestic Maple
Orange_Maple.jpg To perch on a moss-covered boulder in the heart of the woods, lean against the broad trunk of a towering sugar maple, and gaze up at the green vault above: this is to experience the Canadian forest at its finest. Idling away a few careless moments in the presence of this wise old species allows us to journey backward in our own memories, to explore a daydreamed future, and to rest in the serenity of the present. The maple canopy connects land and sky, shade and light, tree and tree, human and heavens.

In a land dominated by vast woodlands, it is no surprise that the maple is considered a national treasure and symbol of a people. It has played a key role in Canada’s development as a nation. From the earliest Native Americans to the European explorers, the settlers and, ultimately, those who manage today’s forestry and tourism industries, Canadians have always found the maple to be a beautiful and important resource.

For approximately 200 years, the maple leaf symbol has been associated specifically with Canada and Canadians. In 1965, the maple leaf became the centerpiece of Canada’s most important national emblem - the Canadian flag. On April 25, 1996, the Deputy Registrar of Canada proclaimed the maple tree (genus Acer, representing the 10 species found in Canada) the country’s official arboreal emblem, citing the maple leaf’s historical role as a symbol of national identity, the important part the maple has played in the country’s historical and commercial development, its aesthetic importance to Canadians, and the tree’s role as an important environmentally sustainable economic resource.
