Much has changed since 1988, when the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) was first introduced to the world. Thirty-five years later, Canada's bullion maple leaf appears untouched by time on our coins, where its beauty has been enhanced by different finishes and technologies over the years-including Ultra High Relief, as seen on this 99.99% pure silver collectible from the Royal Canadian Mint. On the coin's reverse, selective gold plating adds a celebratory gleam to the SML on its 35th anniversary, and highlights the 1.4 mm peak relief height first introduced on the 2022 UHR SML. The coin's reverse features Walter Ott's Silver Maple Leaf (SML) design, which celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2023.Struck in Ultra High Relief, the iconic maple leaf is plated with yellow gold and surrounded by the words "CANADA", "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR" and the purity standard of "9999". The rim is also plated with yellow gold on both sides, while the obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign. The follow-up to 2022's first UHR SML, each coin is crafted in 1 oz.
