1 oz 2023 Maple Leaf Forever Reverse Proof Platinum Coin | Royal Canadian Mint
Buy with Confidence
A maple anniversary bouquet in celebration of the Platinum Maple Leaf’s 35 years.
One of the world’s most coveted platinum offerings, Canada’s Platinum Maple Leaf (PtML) bullion coin turns 35 this year (2023) and this exquisite maple bouquet is our way of marking the happy occasion. On your coin’s reverse, four sugar maple leaves—the same maple species so elegantly featured on every Platinum Maple Leaf issued since 1988—form an eye-pleasing, symmetrical arrangement that is further enhanced with touches of yellow gold. The double dates “1988-2023” commemorate the anniversary of the coin’s big debut, as does Arnold Machin’s historic effigy, which looks resplendent in 99.95% platinum.
A platinum-themed pairing: the 1988 effigy and an anniversary bouquet.
- An anniversary arrangement. Crafted in 99.95% pure platinum, the 2023 edition of our annual platinum maple celebration commemorates the 35ᵗʰ anniversary of the first 1 oz. Platinum Maple Leaf bullion coin issued in 1988.
- Reverse proof finish. Thanks to the coin’s reverse proof finish (frosted field, brilliant relief), the focus is entirely on your coin’s maple bouquet.
- Rare and prestigious. Previous Maple Leaf Forever coins sold out quickly, and for 2023, the mintage is limited to just 375 coins available to collectors worldwide.
- Includes serialized certificate. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
- No GST/HST.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a black Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
Platinum and gold
Your coin features a sophisticated bouquet of maple leaves. All four leaves have been polished to a high shine and two opposing leaves have been plated with yellow gold for a luxurious colour contrast, resulting in a visually stunning composition that immediately catches the eye.
The 35ᵗʰ anniversary of the Platinum Maple Leaf is indicated by the double dates “1988-2023”.
Your coin’s obverse features the effigy designed by Arnold Machin. This is the effigy that appeared on the very first Platinum Maple Leaf issued in 1988.
DID YOU KNOW?
Since its first release in 1988, the Platinum Maple Leaf bullion coin has been minted at a purity of .9995 platinum—a higher purity than .999 platinum bullion.
The reverse design by artist Luc Normandin features an elegant bouquet composed of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves. Yellow gold plating on the rim and on two of the four leaves creates a striking colour contrast, while the dates “1988-2023” commemorate the 35ᵗʰ anniversary of the first Platinum Maple Leaf bullion coin. The rim is also gold-plated on the obverse, which, like the first coin issued in 1988, features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.
"I have been a nature lover for as long as I can remember, and I love nature as it is—unedited, unspoiled and untouched. This is why I chose to illustrate these maple leaves as they appear in nature: simple yet marvelous, and harmoniously arranged in a group." - LUC NORMANDIN, ARTIST
