2018 Canada $5 1-oz Silver Incuse Maple Leaf NGC MS70 Black Core
30th Anniversary Silver Maple Leafs Feature FIRST-EVER Incuse Design!
To celebrate three decades of striking its signature pure silver coins, The Royal Canadian Mint has released a FIRST-EVER Silver Maple Leaf with an incuse design! What does “incuse” mean? Simply put, it’s the opposite of high-relief coins – the obverse and reverse design elements of incuse coins are sunk into the surface of the coins rather than raised above it like most coins you see. This method of striking coins was popularized in the early m20th Century to reduce the normal wear and tear of common circulating coins.
Struck in a full ounce of highly-pure 99.99% silver and bearing a denomination of $5, these new 2018 Silver Incuse Maple Leafs may be legal tender, but it’s unlikely that they’ll ever circulate as actual cash money. Just 250,000 will be minted – and even fewer will be certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in the flawless Mint State 70 (MS70) condition that the coins available in this offer are in – that’s the top grade any coin can earn! In addition, your Canada One-Ounce Silver Incuse Maple Leaf will come sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a black core insert – providing you the best in protection while giving you clear sightlines and perfect visual contrast for every beautiful detail. The case also includes an exclusive Canada label that features a charming image of Niagara Falls.
This is your opportunity, while our supply lasts, to add one of the best of the best of these new incuse design coins to your collection. Just don’t wait – as one of the most recognized silver coins in the world, demand is likely to exceed supply. Click one to your cart today!
