99.99% PURE SILVER COIN. NEW IN ORIGINAL MINT PACKAGE FROM THE CANADIAN MINT. Composition : 99.99% PURE SILVER. 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.
