One of the most recognizable incuse coin strikes of the last 100 years came on the US Mint’s Gold Half Eagles and Quarter Eagles. An incuse strike occurs when the design element for a coin is stamped down into the surface of the coin rather than engraved onto the top of it. Incuse strikes result in no 3D raised design elements, but rather, it showcases design elements sunken into the surface.
These 2018 3 oz Silver Canadian Incuse Maple Leaf Reverse Proof Coins were produced by the Royal Canadian Mint with reverse proof visuals. These types of proof coins have frosted background fields with design elements overlaying that field that are deeply-mirrored and clear.
On the obverse of 2018 Silver Canadian Incuse Maple Leaf Reverse Proof Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief in the fourth-generation portrait used on Canadian coins during her reign. Designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003, this image of Her Majesty is the first portrait of a monarch without a crown since the reign of her father, King George VI.
The reverse side of 2018 3 oz Silver Canadian Incuse Maple Leaf Reverse Proof Coins bears the icon known as the sugar maple leaf. Canada’s official emblem today, the sugar maple leaf has been a symbol for some of Canada’s provinces dating back to the late 17th century as French explorers began to settle in the region.
