This is the 2015 1/2oz numismatic Silver Maple Leaf coin issued individually from the Royal Canadian Min each year since 2011. With a purity of .9999-fine Silver, this $10 face value coin features brilliant and mirrored surfaces of unique design.
• The coin features an exceptional depiction of silver maple leaves, which have been beautifully engraved with the artistry and craftsmanship for which the Royal Canadian Mint is internationally renowned.
• The specimen finish background showcases the design’s finer details, such as the deeply cut, intricate veins that run through each leaf’s lobes and the slightly furled, serrated edges.
• An excellent addition to any Canadiana- or nature-themed collection and a thoughtful gift to mark memorable milestones and treasured achievements.
Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, and depicts three silver maple (Acer saccharinum) leaves. With their edges slightly furled, these leaves are positioned in a way that evokes memories of a beautiful autumn day in Canada – it is easy to imagine these leaves gently falling from the majestic silver maple tree onto the ground below. In the foreground, the largest leaf lies on its side as it stretches across the image field; its long petiole rests overtop the smaller, downward-facing leaf at far left. The large leaf’s bottom left lobe overlaps the base of a third leaf behind it. Beautiful engraving adds depth to the image by showcasing the silver maple’s deeply cut veins and serrate leaf margins.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
