2019 1 oz. Canadian Silver Maple Leafs - Gem BU - Fresh from The Royal Canadian Mint with MINTSHIELD™ Protection Technology! - Mintage Of 250,000
Following the widely popular release of the inaugural 2018 issue, is the 2019 Canadian Incuse Silver Maple Leaf. Like the 2018 issue, it is limited to a mintage of 250,000. The design includes the iconic Maple Leaf on the reverse and the Queen's portrait on the obverse, but both are incuse or set in.
These coins are struck from dies with recessed fields. Therefore the devices – the raised areas of a coins design – are recessed or concave on the coins. In numismatics, this is known as incuse. Still fairly new, is the is the Royal Canadian Mint's MINTSHIELD™ technology, a special coating on the surface of the coin. It helps prevent and reduce the occurrence of milk spots. Invisible to the naked eye, it does not change the coin or purity (other than protecting it).
The Canadian Maple Leaf is guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint. Orders of 25 or more may ship in original mint tubes. Single coins ship in 2x2 plastic flips, unless the Ship in a Direct Fit Air-Tite option is chosen from the Holder Options drop-down menu above.
