2018 Canada 3-oz Silver Incuse Maple Leaf Reverse Proof NGC PF70 First Day of Issue - Black
Go Under the Surface With These Gorgeous INCUSE Silver Maple Leafs!
Canada's famous Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins have been a hit with collectors ever since their debut in 1988. And, in the 30 years since it made its first appearance, this iconic coin's design has remained relatively intact. Sure, as time goes by, Queen Elizabeth II's profile has reflected the passing years. And as minting technology becomes more advanced, the leaf itself has become more detailed and its surroundings more intricate to foil forgers. But on the whole, this coin has withstood the transitory trends of time. It seems that the only direction this design can go is down – beneath the surface, that is!
To herald the series' 30th anniversary, the Royal Canadian Mint is introducing the first ever INCUSE Silver Maple Leaf! For this special release, both the titular maple leaf design on the reverse AND the profile of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse are sunk into the coin, their textures reaching just below the lustrous field. Taking its cue from ancient coins all the way up to the storied U.S. Indian Head Half Eagles and Quarter Eagles of the early 20th century, these Silver Maple Leafs proudly bring incuse minting techniques into a gorgeous new era!
Not only are these coin the first-ever three-ounce silver incuse Maple Leaf coins, but they’re also the first-ever Silver Maples struck in three ounces! The large 55 mm dimeter of this coin really lets you see the glimmering beauty of its fascinating incuse designs! What’s more, the coin features an exquisite Reverse Proof finish with beautiful frosted fields and crisp, mirrored incuse devices.
Each coin has also been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be in perfect Proof-70 (PF70) condition. In addition, NGC has also certified that your coin is a First Day of Issue (FDI) coin – independent authentication that your coin was released by the mint during the premier day of the series' issue. Finally, your coin will be sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a black core insert and a 30th anniversary label, giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines and perfect visual contrast for every beautiful detail.
And, with only 3,000 of these three-ounce beauties ever struck, you had better order yours now before our small pile of leaves blows away!
