2021 Canadian Super Incuse SML Proof Silver Coin
This coin’s reverse features Walter Ott’s iconic sugar maple leaf design, unchanged since the first Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin issued in 1988. For the first time ever, its famous maple leaf has been struck using Super Incuse technology, which gives it an incuse depth of 1.5 millimetres. A modified reverse proof finish ensures the focus is on the brilliant relief. The reverse also includes the engraved words “CANADA” and “FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR”, as well as the purity standard of “9999” and a “25” maple leaf privy mark in honour of the 25th anniversary of thearboreal emblem of Canada, the maple (Acer). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, along with the engraved face value “20 DOLLARS” and the year “2021”.
