Why buy this 2020-W $5 Canada Burnished 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf?
The Royal Canadian Mint brings an exciting new issue to collectors with this first ever Silver Maple Leaf from the Winnipeg Mint. Up to now, the iconic coin was only struck at the Ottawa Mint, and it never had a mint mark. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the series, the Royal Canadian Mint flew specialists from Ottawa to Winnipeg to retool the mint for collector coins, as it had only struck coins for circulation prior to this issue. The coin was struck on a burnished blank of .9999 fine silver and is part of a mintage of just 10,000 pieces. The Winnipeg Mint's "W" mint mark is set to the left of the stem on the reverse. This first of its kind issue is available outside of Canada exclusively from MCM.
Exquisite Maple Leaf Design by Walter Ott
The coin's obverse bears a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed by Susanna Blunt, the effigy is unique among those of the monarch around the world in that it shows her with neither a crown nor a tiara. She does, however, don earrings and a necklace as she faces right with her shoulders open to the holder.The monarch's name, "ELIZABETH II," arches over the image. Inscriptions on the bottom portion of the rim note the coin's face value, "5 DOLLARS," and its date, "2020."
On the reverse is Walter Ott's iconic sugar maple leaf design. Although simple in concept, the design is intricate in execution, as Ott brings the leaf to life through intricate detail. The coin's purity, "9999," is inscribed to both sides of the leaf, while the name of the issuing country, "CANADA," is provided on the rim at the top. Inscriptions on the bottom half of the rim provide the coin's weight in English and French, together reading, "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR."
Impeccable MS70 FDI with Black Core Holder and Exclusive Taylor Signed Label
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification by awarding it their highest grade, Mint State 70. They also labeled it First Day of Issue, which means that it was submitted to them through an exclusive process. This information comes provided on a label that has been hand signed by Susan Taylor, a retired Senior Engraver of the Royal Canadian Mint, and the coin comes set in a sleek black core holder.
