The lightbulb’s development was a defining moment in human history, but it did not occur overnight. The lightbulb’s development began as early as the first few decades of the 1800s, when arc lamps were shown to the public. Among those early inventors seeking to light homes around the world with electricity were Canadians Henry Woodward and Mathew Evans.

Inventors looked for filaments that would product light but not melt or burn inside of the glass tube. Platinum was actually an early choice among inventors, but its expense made it a poor choice for wider adoption. Carbon was the first popular filament. Thomas Edison would famously earn recognition for patenting and marketing the first incandescent lightbulb.

Today, the efforts of all these inventors are promoted on the 2018 1 oz Lightbulb Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Reverse Proof Coin. As reverse proof coins, these specimens have a strong, frosted matte background with contrasting deeply-mirrored, clear design elements for visual brilliance.

These new coins also feature the Royal Canadian Mint’s exclusive MintShield Technology. The new technology from RCM is available primarily on Silver Maple Leaf coin variants, and helps prevent milking, otherwise known as white spots.

On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Lightbulb Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coin is the Walter Ott sugar maple leaf design. Included on this face of the coin you’ll find a privy mark that features a lightbulb with light rays emanating from it. There are also engravings of “Canada,” “9999,” and “Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur.”

The obverse of the Lightbulb Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coin bears the fourth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is found on the obverse of all Canadian coinage and this design includes engravings of “Elizabeth II,” “5 Dollars,” and “2018.”
