Why purchase this 2018 Canadian 1 oz. Silver Incuse Maple Leaf coin?
The Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Silver Maple Leaf in 1988. Throughout the series, special low-mintage editions have been released with varied finishes and/or privy marks. This 2018 issue features a first-ever incuse strike, representing a first for the series in its 30th year of production. This means the design elements are sunken into the coin on the obverse and reverse. The stunning coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver with a 250,000 coin limited mintage.
Incuse Strike Maple Leaf Design
The reverse features the iconic sugar maple leaf, Canada's national symbol, as envisioned by Walter Ott. Inscribed with a maple leaf security mark beside the stem, "CANADA" and "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR," with "9999" flanking the incredibly detailed incused leaf
The obverse depicts the incused image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by artist Susanna Blunt. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "5 DOLLARS" and "2018" in a radial lined field area. The RCM has announced a new process called MINTSHIELD to reduce the appearance of milk spots, a concern for many Maple Leaf customers.
