Canada 2013 FABULOUS F 15 Fab 15 Privy Mark $5 Pure Silver Maple Leaf in OGP
Be one of the lucky few to add this ultra-low-mintage, privy marked, European release Silver Maple to your collection or investment portfolio! Here is a true discovery - an unique, investment-grade, pure silver coin! Silver maples are so hard to find! It isn't just the extremely low mintage that makes them so rare. To see the light of day. Very few collectors or investors are willing to do this - which is why they are so difficult to locate! While regular, standard edition Silver Maple Leafs are normally struck in the millions, the Fabulous 15 Privy Mark SML with the specimen finish has a limited mintage of just 10,000 total! The Fabulous 15 Privy Mark Silver Maple Leaf was struck for an European distributor, for inclusion in a boxed collection (see picture) of the fifteen most desired silver coins in the world. Was given the special "Fab 15" privy mark. Very few of these coins will ever escape their sets (and even fewer will be offered to collectors in North America), yet all silver maple collectors need this coin. This investment-grade coin has a mintage limit of only 10,000-far, far less than most other privy marked silver maples. The Hannover Expo Privy SML has a total mintage of 25,000 that's two and half times higher!
Be one of the lucky few to add this unique beauty to your holdings! This coin features the uniquely-Canadian "specimen" finish, a three-fold combination of different finishes.
The design (raised area or relief) includes both frosted and mirrored surfaces, while the fields (background) are subtly striated, resulting in a contrasting, matte appearance. No other mint in the world employs the specimen finish. The Royal Canadian Mint refines the purest silver in the world. Since their introduction the Canadian Maple Leaf coins have been regarded as among the finest silver coins in the world, owing in large part to their superb, unequaled purity.
This one troy ounce silver coin is 99.99% pure! A highly-detailed depiction of a single maple leaf. To the left of the maple leaf's stem is the Fab 15 (for "Fabulous 15") privy mark. The legends FINE SILVER 1 OZ and 9999 guarantee the weight and purity. This portrait, the fourth effigy of the queen to appear on Canadian Coinage, was executed by the artist Susanna Blunt. The legend ELIZABETH II D. REGINA ("Elizabeth II, Queen by the Grace of God") also appears.
