In 2018, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrated the 30th anniversary of the launch of the iconic maple leaf bullion coins. One might say that it was a momentous event for the entire numismatic community. As the anniversary was round, an idea was put forward to celebrate it respectfully. The result can be found in our online coin shop.
30th anniversary of the iconic SML coin
Though the celebration refers to the anniversary of the launch of the silver coin – 99.999% pure gold was used to strike this particular one, specifically 1 ounce for each of the 500 pieces in the issue. An extra ornament is the platinum leaf plating on the reverse, which adds a very elegant touch to the whole. Commemorative markings on the relatively wide rim represent another of the interesting additions.
There is no need to discuss the maple leaf depicted on the reverse at length. In fact, it is a classic design by Walter Ott, who has been consistently creating world fame for Canadian bullion coins for more than 30 years. Indeed, the maple leaf itself is the symbol of the whole of Canada and the Royal Canadian Mint is a mint which has more than once proven its creativity and the superior quality. And the regular visitors of the numismatic online shop Coins From World are aware of this fact as well.
