The 2017 Silver Maple Leaf Monster Box Sweepstakes Winner is Announced
From March 6 to April 2, APMEX ran the 2017 Silver Maple Leaf Monster Box Sweepstakes, courtesy of the Royal Canadian Mint. One very lucky winner won a 500-coin Monster Box of 2017 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins. This fortunate winner is Gary W. from Nevada!
“For the past few years I have used APMEX for my precious metal purchases, mostly gold and some platinum coins,” said Gary. “Thank you APMEX for always providing me with great service on my orders. Winning the Monster Box Sweepstakes helps diversify my precious metal collection by adding the Royal Canadian Mint's gorgeous Silver Maple Leafs.”
The Royal Canadian Mint’s history is an impressive one. After breaking from The Royal Mint in London in 1931, the Ottawa Mint was officially named the Royal Canadian Mint and reported solely to the Department of Finance. In 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint was designated a National Historic Site of Canada because of the Tudor Gothic architectural style to create a specific look for Canada’s capital.
In 1988, the mint began producing the official Silver bullion coin of Canada – the 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf – which is now one of the most recognized coins around the world. This .9999 fine Silver coin has been minted every year since 1988 and represents Canadian nationalism and Canadian pride. The obverse features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II while the reverse showcases the signature maple leaf with intricate design and close attention to detail.
APMEX is always pleased to work with the Royal Canadian Mint to offer prizes and giveaways like the 2017 Silver Maple Leaf Monster Box Sweepstakes to our customers. If you were not able to enter into this sweepstakes, stay tuned to our website for the next one soon!
