Why purchase this specially labeled 2018 Incused Silver Maple Leaf 1 oz. coin?
The Royal Canadian Mint's 1 oz. Silver Maple Leaf coin celebrates its 30th Anniversary in 2018 with a first for the series: an incuse strike of the classic coin on both the obverse and reverse. The 2018 Incused Maple Leaf is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver measuring 37.97 mm in diameter, with a mintage limit of 250,000 coins. The RCM has rolled out a new process called MINTSHIELD to reduce the appearance of milk spots, a concern for many maple leaf customers.
Iconic Maple Leaf Design
The reverse masterfully replicates the classic maple leaf design by Walter Ott, produced with an outstanding incuse strike. The field area is adorned with a radial pattern and includes a maple leaf security mark, along with the inscriptions "CANADA," "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR" and "9999."
Canadian artist Susanna Blunt's gorgeous right facing portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is incused on the obverse, accompanied by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "5 DOLLARS" and "2018."
