2015 FINE SILVER FRACTIONAL SET THE MAPLE LEAF. The strong, resilient, and bountiful sugar maple has long been a symbol of Canada. Beloved Acer saccharum, found readily across this land’s rugged northeastern forests, has something to offer all year long, from the shade provided by its broad leaves in summer and the glory of its vibrant red in the fall. All five coins feature a reverse image by Canadian artist Lilyane Coulombe showing a sugar maple leaf surrounded by a decorative scroll struck incuse into the frosted field, imprinting the texture of the leaf beneath the surface of the fine silver coin – an ingenious technique perfected by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. The 1oz coin has been accented with a rich red translucent enamel, filling the entire maple leaf. THE FIRST EVER incuse silver fractional set from the Royal Canadian Mint! This rare set features 5 silver sugar maple leaf-themed coins struck using a unique incuse technique, in one-ounce and fractional denominations. The 1 oz coin has been accented by a rich translucent red enamel that allows the natural contours of the leaf to show through. The image of the sugar maple leaves is enhanced with a reverse proof finish, highlighting the shine of each leaf against the frosted background. The Royal Canadian Mint’s world-renowned purity standard 99.99% brings exclusivity and prestige to the set. A limited mintage is sure to make this a sought-after set for collectors around the world. A valuable addition to any nature-oriented, Canada-themed, or fractional-themed collection. Customers located in MANITOBA, CANADA!!!!
