Original condition encapsulated with certificate authenticity & case/box. New as from Royal Canadian Mint. To create this unique take on the classic Silver Maple Leaf design, the Royal Canadian Mint Research and Development Team collaborated with the University of Ottawas Centre for Research in Photonics. Together, these innovators created a new technology that generates dynamic optical effects on coins.The technology works by creating sub-millimeter-scale mirrors on the coins. These mirrors are engineered to exact dimensions and orientations, then engraved on the coining dies used to strike the mirror array into the pure silver blanks. The result: the Silver Maple Leaf on the coins reverse appears to expand and contract when you tilt the coin, giving the impression that the maple leaf is pulsating. · THIS FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND COIN MERGES LEADING-EDGE PHOTONICS WITH CLASSIC COIN DESIGN! The iconic Silver Maple Leaf design on the reverse of this unique silver coin seems to pulsate when you tilt it, thanks to technology developed by the University of Ottawa Centre for Research in Photonics and the Mints Research and Development Team. Tiny mirrors designed to precise specifications create the illusion. · RE-CREATED USING ENGINEERED SURFACE MIRROR TECHNOLOGY!
