2023 5 oz Canadian 35th Anniversary of the SML (Maple Leaf) Gilded Proof Silver Coin
This 5 oz 35th-anniversary celebration embodies the same qualities that continue to define the SML: beauty, purity, and classic craftsmanship. Selective gold plating adds a rich, golden gleam on both the obverse and reverse, reflecting our pride in the SML.
Enhanced with selective gold plating, your coin’s reverse features Walter Ott’s now-iconic maple leaf design that has graced every Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin since 1988. The SML design is flanked by intertwined vines and maple leaves designed by artist Tony Bianco, who also created the banner marking the 35th anniversary of the SML in 2023. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
