The First Silver Maple Leafs Ever Released at the Winnipeg Mint!
Ever since the series inception in 1979, the Canadian Maple Leaf Series has always been struck at the Ottawa Branch of the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM). That changes in 2020 with the release of the first-ever Silver Maple Leaf struck at the Winnipeg Branch of the RCM and bearing its "W" Mint mark. To honor this historic issue, this limited mintage run will feature a gorgeous burnished finish on the .9999 fine 1 oz. silver coin, reminiscent of the United States Mint's Burnished American Silver Eagle series that began being issued in 2006. Just 10,000 of these first year of issue burnished Maples will be issued.
Same Design, Different Mint
The obverse of the 2020 Burnished Silver Maple features Susanna Blunt's iconic effigy of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which has appeared on Canadian coinage since 2003, albeit with a satiny finish this time around. The face value, "5 Dollars," year of issue, "2020," and "Elizabeth II" are inscribed on the obverse.
The reverse also features a familiar icon, Walter Ott's emblematic Sugar Maple Leaf, which has appeared in the Canadian coin series for over four decades. It is on the reverse that the "W" Mint mark of the Winnipeg Mint which appears to the left of the Maple Leaf's stem.
