Each 2013 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coin in this product listing is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. These coins are housed inside of protective capsules and were originally produced as standard bullion coins by the Royal Canadian Mint. The coins were later gilded with the 24-karat gold layer after production by a third-party authorized dealer.
Gilded silver coins have a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied to specific design elements. In the case of Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins, that gilded layer is limited to one design feature on the reverse face of the coins. The layer of gold is not enough to change the inherent metallic value of the coins, but it does add collectible attraction.
On the obverse side of 2013 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins, you will find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this right-profile bust is the fourth during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and is the first since the reign of her father, King George VI, to depict a monarch without the crown.
The reverse of the 2013 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins includes a depiction of the sugar maple leaf. Long been used as the national emblem of the nation, the sugar maple leaf comes from the most numerous species of the maple tree within Canada. This design was originally created in 1979 by Walter Ott. This side of the coin has the gold gilded layer and it is found only on the sugar maple leaf itself.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 as the sovereign mint of the nation. It originally consisted only of the Ottawa Mint and now includes the Winnipeg Mint to support circulation currency production in the country.
