Why does this limited mintage Reverse Proof Ultra High Relief 2022 Canadian 5 oz. Silver Maple Leaf coin belong in your collection?
The Silver Maple Leaf series has been a popular annual product of the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) since 1988. This 2022 dated reverse proof release marks the first time ever in the history of the series that the coin has been minted with an Ultra High Relief strike. On the five ounce silver coin, the cherished Maple Leaf graphic rises a colossal 3.0 mm above the surface of the coin. Comparatively, that is ten times the relief height of the standard bullion issue one ounce Silver Maple Leaf coin! The original Maple Leaf design was created for the introduction of the Gold Maple Leaf series in 1979 by the late Walter Ott (1920-2020), the RCM's Master Engraver and Director of Art from 1977 until 1985. The metamorphosis of the relatively flat design to the stunning Ultra High Relief format was performed by Susan Taylor, an apprentice of Mr. Ott in the early 1980's, who served as the Mint's Senior Engraver from 1999 until her retirement in 2017.

Reverse: Canada's national symbol, a lone sugar maple leaf, is illustrated on the reverse.
