Each one of these 2014 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leafs is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and is packaged inside of an individual plastic capsule. Known as gilded coins, these 2014 Silver Canadian Maple Leafs have a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied only to select design elements.
In the case of all Silver Maple Leafs that are gilded, the 24-karat gold layer is featured only the sugar maple leaf on the reverse face of the coins. The layer of gold, though impressive at 24-karat in nature, is not enough to drastically alter the precious metal content of the coin with its addition. However, it is enough to create a beautiful visual contrast between the sugar maple leaf and its surrounding design elements.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse side of 2014 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leafs. This portrait of the Queen was designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt as the fourth-generation Canadian depiction of the monarch. Canadian denominations used existing Royal Mint designs from 1953 to 1989. Starting in 1990, the Royal Canadian Mint split from Royal Mint designs to feature its own effigies of the Queen. This is just the second created by a Canadian artist exclusively for use by the RCM.
A sugar maple leaf as designed by Walter Ott is depicted on the reverse face of 2014 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leafs. This is the same image that appears on the reverse of all coins in the Canadian Maple Leaf Series. As mentioned, the sugar maple on these coins has been enhanced with a 24-karat gold layer, while the remainder of the reverse maintains its beautiful silver luster.
