World's First Ultra-High Relief Maple Leafs. The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) is known around the world for its gorgeous Silver and Silver Maple Leafs.
Since their debut in 1979, these popular collector coins have been released every year with the same beautiful design of a sugar maple leaf crafted by the RCM's then-Chief Engraver, Walter Ott. Since that time, the design has remained unchanged-unchanged that is, until now!That's because for the very first time in history Canada's iconic Maple Leaf design has been re-sculpted in Ultra-High Relief! A Re-Sculpting That's Nothing Short Of Stunning.
To pull this off, officials at the Royal Canadian Mint turned to the only person they felt had the skill and experience to master the momentous task of re-sculpting its flagship coin. That person was Susan Taylor, the RCM's former Senior Engraver.
Taylor worked at The Mint from 1981 until her retirement in 2017 and won the American Medal of the Year Award in 2016. During that time, she also worked closely with Ott during his tenure at the. Taylor painstakingly went to work, and the result is nothing short of stunning! A Breathtaking Combination Of High Relief And Reverse Proof. Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% silver, the spectacular re-sculpted image on this Silver Maple Leaf majestically towers 1.4 mm above the surface of the coin-that's more than FIVE times higher than standard silver coin relief!
And to fully accentuate the jaw-dropping Ultra High Relief detail, the coin was struck with a unique Reverse Proof finish. The opposite of a regular proof that features frosted details rising over mirror-like fields, this coin features mirror-like details rising over frosted fields. The highly polished raised elements and frosted fields provide an especially breathtaking effect in combination with the coin's dramatic relief! Flawless Proofs From Among The First Releases. What's more, each 2022 Canada One-Ounce Silver Maple Leaf Ultra High Relief Reverse Proof has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 (PF70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs have ZERO imperfections-showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.
