Selective gold plating on this large 5 oz. Silver coin makes it highly sought after and extremely collectible. Each coin is rendered in fine silver (99.99% pure). The exceptional and uniquely textured matte proof field is a testament to exceptional craftsmanship.The obverse of this coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin that was present on coins at the time of the Silver Maple Leaf's inception in 1988. Limited release of only 1,900 worldwide. This coin was designed by Canadian artist Jean-Louis Sirois. This coin's "Shadowleaf" image features an original and highly creative take on the perennial Canadian maple leaf design present on all Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins. The focal point is a slightly off-center, detailed and embossed maple leaf. This highly polished element is set within a gold-plated, recessed semi-circle that merges, on the image's left side, with a large shadow outline of the same maple leaf. Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a graphic beauty box. Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera.
We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may result in one side being slightly out of focus.
Please review all of the photos provided to obtain the best understanding of the coin's actual appearance. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
