Why does this limited mintage brilliant uncirculated Tailored Specimen 2021-W Canadian 1 oz. Silver Maple Leaf coin belong in your collection?
The Maple Leaf series has been an annual product of the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) since 1979. The RCM introduced a specially minted burnished variety of the Maple Leaf in 2019 (the coin was dated 2020) featuring the "W" Mint mark of the Winnipeg Mint for the first time ever. The RCM has issued a second numismatic "W" Mint-marked Maple Leaf coin in 2021, with a newly-developed Tailored Specimen finish. The Tailored Specimen is characterized by satin-like design elements, with backgrounds patterned with finely etched 30 degree angled lines that emulate the contemporary architecture of the Winnipeg facility.
Exquisite Canadian Maple Leaf Design
Obverse: The right facing likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II crafted by award-winning Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt in 2003 is centered on the obverse. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II" above, with "5 DOLLARS 2021" below.
Reverse: The reverse depicts a lone maple leaf, Canada's national symbol, with the "W" Mint mark to the left of the stem. The meticulously rendered design by Walter Ott is accompanied by the inscriptions "CANADA," "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR" and "9999." Mr. Ott was the RCM's Master Engraver and Director of Art during the 1979 introduction of the Maple Leaf series.
