FEATURES A MATTE PROOF FINISH
The field’s satin shine creates a pleasing contrast that ensures the focus is on the brilliant relief.
DID YOU KNOW?
Designed by former RCM Master Engraver Walter Ott, the SML’s namesake leaf remains one of the most famous Canadian coin designs. Its sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaf is a recognizable symbol of supreme craftsmanship and purity: all SML coins are minted in one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver, making it one of the world’s purest silver bullion coins.
Enhanced with selective gold plating, your coin’s reverse features Walter Ott’s now-iconic maple leaf design that has graced every Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin since 1988. The SML design is flanked by intertwined vines and maple leaves designed by artist Tony Bianco, who also created the banner marking the 35TH anniversary of the SML in 2023. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
ABOUT THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT
The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
