World-leading technology in a pure silver coin! Order today!

To create this unique take on the classic Silver Maple Leaf design, the Royal Canadian Mint Research and Development Team collaborated with the University of Ottawa’s Centre for Research in Photonics. Together, these innovators created a new technology that generates dynamic optical effects on coins. The technology works by creating sub-millimeter-scale mirrors on the coins. These mirrors are engineered to exact dimensions and orientations, then engraved on the coining dies used to strike the mirror array into the pure silver blanks. The result: the Silver Maple Leaf on the coin’s reverse appears to expand and contract when you tilt the coin, giving the impression that the maple leaf is pulsating.

Brand new technology and a classic design—all in one beautiful coin. Order today!

Special features:
  • THIS FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND COIN MERGES LEADING-EDGE PHOTONICS WITH CLASSIC COIN DESIGN! The iconic Silver Maple Leaf design on the reverse of this unique silver coin seems to pulsate when you tilt it, thanks to technology developed by the University of Ottawa Centre for Research in Photonics and the Mint’s Research and Development Team. Tiny mirrors designed to precise specifications create the illusion.
  • RE-CREATED USING ENGINEERED SURFACE MIRROR TECHNOLOGY! The latest coin in our popular series of 2-ounce fine silver collector coins based on the iconic Silver Maple Leaf design found on our sought-after bullion coins, re-created using engineered surface mirror technology.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 3,000 coins worldwide.
  • 2 OZ. PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from two ounces of 99.99% pure silver.
  • NO GST/HST!

Design:

The reverse image features the Silver Maple Leaf design from the Royal Canadian Mint’s bullion coinage, rendered using newly developed technology developed in collaboration with the Centre for Research in Photonics at the University of Ottawa. The reverse and obverse field pattern reproduces an expanded, non-pulsating version of the pulsating pattern on the maple leaf. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The maple leaf design on this coin was first introduced on Royal Canadian Mint silver and platinum bullion coins in 1988.
  • Although this is a collector (numismatic) coin and not a bullion coin, the bullion coins from which the design is taken represent some of the world’s most sought-after gold, silver, and platinum bullion. The Mint’s refinery is one of the most technically advanced for gold and silver in particular. This refinery has produced a number of world firsts, including being the first to introduce a 99.99% pure gold bullion coin (in 1982) and the first to unveil a 100-kilogram 99999 pure gold bullion coin with a $1 million face value (in 2007).
  • This coin design was created using a sub-millimeter-scale modified corner cube array. The shape, size, edge angles, and orientation of each individual mirror facet were carefully engineered to create the visual perception of a dramatically pulsating shape.  This is an application of photonics, which is the science of generating, detecting, and manipulating photons (light particles). This far-ranging physical science has numerous impacts across fields ranging from better understanding the universe to improving our knowledge of diseases. It affects the daily life of people around the globe in the form of electronics, telecommunications, manufacturing, and more.

Packaging:

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