Why should you purchase this flawless Ultra High Relief Reverse Proof 2022 1 oz. Gold Maple Leaf coin with a signed First Day of Issue certification label?
The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) has issued the Gold Maple Leaf series for more than four decades. This 2022 dated Maple Leaf coin represents the first release in the history of the series to feature an Ultra High Relief strike, which translates the historic design to an astounding height of 1.8 mm! Paired with a reverse proof finish, the result is a breathtaking numismatic work of art. Acclaimed sculptor Walter Ott (1920-2020), the Mint's Chief Engraver and Director of Art from 1977 until his 1985 retirement, created the time-honored maple leaf graphic in 1979 for the introduction of the Gold Maple Leaf series. The iconic design was transformed into a highly sculptural Ultra High Relief masterpiece by Susan Taylor, a currently retired RCM Senior Engraver who began her career as a Mint Engraver apprentice to Mr. Ott in 1981.
Classic Maple Leaf Design in Ultra High Relief
Obverse: The inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "200 DOLLARS" and "2022" encircle the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that is located on the obverse. This right facing likeness of the longest reigning monarch in British history was designed in 2003 by award-winning Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt.
Reverse: A meticulously detailed Ultra High Relief sugar maple leaf is centered on the reverse. The leaf is surrounded by the inscriptions "CANADA" and "FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR," with the coin's "9999" metallic purity positioned on the right and left sides of the leaf.
