STORY

For 2022, the Royal Canadian Mint is elevating a classic to new heights by introducing the first ever ultra-high relief Gold Maple Leaf (GML) and Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coins. Crafted in an impressive-sized (65.25 mm) 99.99% pure silver format, this 5 oz. SML features the iconic design that embodies the pride and beauty of Canada. But by adding more height—and as a result, more dimension—Walter Ott’s inspiring maple leaf also represents the spirit of innovation and the ability to broaden our horizons by building on a tradition of excellence.

DESIGN

The reverse features Walter Ott’s iconic Silver Maple Leaf design, a collector favourite since 1988. Resplendent in a reverse proof finish, the sugar maple leaf is struck in ultra-high relief with a peak height of 3 millimetres. The reverse includes the engraved words “CANADA” and “FINE SILVER 5 OZ ARGENT PUR”, and the purity standard of “9999”.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • THE FIRST UHR SML! This is the first ultra-high relief (UHR) 5 oz. Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin ever issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. Crafted in 5 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, this premium collectible offers a more dimensional view of the SML’s namesake leaf than ever before.
  • ULTRA HIGH! The reverse features a peak relief height of 3 mm—that’s significantly higher than the standard 0.80 mm you’d normally see on a piece this size (65.25 mm). A must-see!
  • A SPECIAL TOUCH! The relief was sculpted by retired RCM Senior Engraver Susan Taylor, who worked under the tutelage of the late Walter Ott, RCM Master Engraver and creator of the GML/SML design.
  • REVERSE PROOF FINISH! Set against a frosted field, the ultra-high relief dazzles thanks to a mirror-like shine that reflects maximum light.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Impeccably crafted, this large-sized (65.25 mm) showpiece is a limited work of art—only 1,250 are available to collectors worldwide.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
