Design:

Your large-sized numismatic coin honours 30 years of history through its enhanced re-creation of the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin. Your coin features the now-iconic image of a single maple leaf, whose superb shine and intricately etched details have remained unchanged since the SML's debut in 1988. As an added commemorative element, a gold-plated scroll banner is gently wrapped around the base of the leaf; it bears the engraved words "30 YEARS/ANS", which are centrally positioned between the dates "1988" and "2018". The gold-plated rim on the reverse and obverse adds a luxurious gleam to the overall design, while the field is filled with a repeating pattern of a micro-sized maple leaf with the number "30". This background pattern echoes one of the SML's security features, and its unique way of diffracting light results in a hologram-like effect that adds to the beauty of this extraordinary keepsake. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Following its own debut in 1979, the success of our Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin paved the way for the SML's successful introduction in 1988. 
  • All SML coins are minted in one troy ounce of .9999 pure silver, making it one of the world's purest silver bullion coins!
  • While the SML's signature leaf design hasn't changed much over the last 30 years, several commemorative and special editions have also been issued throughout the coin's history, including those featuring unique technology (holograms, colour applications), privy marks, and different themes altogether!
  • In 2014, we introduced a number of cutting-edge security features that confirm the authenticity of each SML, including a micro-engraved maple leaf with the year of issue—an idea echoed in the laser-engraved, repeating pattern on this coin's obverse AND reverse!

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
