Why add the 2018 Canada 1 oz. Silver Maple Leaf - Incuse $5 Coin GEM Brilliant Uncirculated to your collection?
The Canadian Maple Leaf coins are among the most sought-after issues available in the world today. This 2018 Canada 1 oz. First-ever Incuse $5 Silver Maple Leaf can be yours in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition. For a coin to be incuse, the design elements must be sunken into the surface of the coin, rather than raised above, and this is true for both the Maple Leaf and Queen's Effigy design. This Royal Canadian Mint issue is struck on .9999 fine silver planchets weighing 1 oz. This is a legal tender Canadian $5 coin struck for the 30th Anniversary of this iconic series. The mintage is a low 250,000 coins.
A 30th Anniversary Design Departure
The obverse of the coin features the Susanna Blunt designed portrait of Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II. It has been the standard portrait on Canadian coinage since 2003, now incuse! The reverse of the coin features the iconic Maple Leaf from the RCM engravers but offered in a concave or incused version. This enduring symbol of peace and tolerance has deep meaning to the Canadian people.
