This exceptional commemorative coin is 99.99% pure silver. This coin features Canadian artist Arnold Nogy’s reverse image, a variation on the original Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin. This design depicts two small sugar maple leaves overlapping the bottom lobes of one large sugar maple leaf. Each raised maple leaf is rendered in sculptural detail, and fills the coin’s reverse field. The top of the reverse is embossed with the word “CANADA” while the bottom of the image features the bilingual text “25th ANNIVERSARY” and “25e ANNIVERSAIRE.” with weight of 5 ounces indicated. The leaf cipher is flanked on its left and right sides by the purity standard “9999.” The obverse of the coin features an embossed 50 dollars face value, the commemorative dates “1988” and “2013,” the word “ELIZABETH II,” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin, from the coin’s first release in 1988.
This large 5 oz coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded black clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized design sleeve.
