The First SML Engraved in Ultra-High Relief And Reverse Proof. An elevated take on a classic, this is the first ever ultra-high relief Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin. Struck in a reverse proof finish (frosted field, brilliant relief) and on an innovative new coin blank, this fine silver coin boasts a peak relief height of 1.4 mm on its reverse, resulting in a more dimensional rendering of the SML's namesake leaf than ever before. Behind the scenes, there's a personal connection, too: the relief was sculpted by retired Senior Engraver Susan Taylor, who previously worked under the tutelage of the late Walter Ott, creator of this world-famous leaf portrait. Elevating a classic: The SML, now in ultra-high relief.
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. The SML is one of our most popular annual offerings and it tends to sell out quickly. Mintage is limited to 7,000 worldwide, so don't miss out.
