The Royal Canadian Mint is commemorating the 1 oz. 99.99% pure silver maple leaf bullion coin with a special edition to mark its 25th anniversary.
A limited mintage of the collector’s piece is being produced at the Mint’s Ottawa facility. Composed of one troy ounce of 99.99% pure silver, the reverse of this new coin features the Walter Ott maple leaf design that has become the signature of the Mint’s “Maple Leaf” family of bullion coins, over which the numerals “25” have been delicately interlaced. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created in 2003 by Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt.
The Mint isn’t selling bullion directly to the public, but interested buyers can contact a reputable bullion dealer to order the special edition coin, which will be available as of early December.
