“It was a unique experience to produce master tooling for a double incuse product and all of the technical challenges that brings, all while maintaining the iconic look of the Silver Maple Leaf. The contrast of the selective rhodium plating against the silver made for a stunning result.” 

-Eric Boyer, Engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint

2020 Black Proof Incuse Maple Leaf Series

Rhodium Plating

GovMint.com is proud to be the exclusive U.S. distributor of the brand-new 2020 Black Proof Incuse Maple Leaf series. Each coin within this series is meticulously plated with one of the rarest precious metals in the world: Rhodium. This rare metal is noted as belonging to the platinum group and its value oftentimes sits well above gold and palladium.
 
Through precise measure, the Royal Canadian Mint's engineers were able to layer rhodium to create the dark, almost black effect that is beautifully seen throughout each coin.

 

Double-Incuse Design

Although the Royal Canadian Mint has incorporated rhodium plating on their coins before, this is the first time they feature an incuse design in tandem with rhodium plating. Each coin possesses incuse devises on both the sugar maple leaf reverse design and Queen Elizabeth's effigy obverse design.
