Only 450 coins available worldwide—a collecting opportunity not to be missed! THE MARK OF FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP: The maple leaf’s serrated edges and distinctive veining are re-created thanks to meticulous engraving, which remains faithful to the SML’s design but also adds a touch of natural
beauty to all three sizes of leaves—including the coin itself.
Selectively plated with the incomparable shine of platinum to create a stunning two-tone effect that enhances the visual impact of this unique gold coin that combines a variety of elements, impeccable detail and finishes to create a highly collectible work of art.
This rare and beautiful coin is a must-have acquisition for collectors of all kinds. Its appeal extends far beyond investors to include anyone who appreciates innovation and art, particularly when it has a distinctive all-Canadian flair! This coin delivers a superlative tribute to one of the world’s most successful investment coins, and the national emblem of the nation where it’s produced.
Obverse underscores the historic launch of the Platinum Maple Leaf by featuring a platinum-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin and Walter Ott that was in circulation in 1988.
Canadian artist Joel Kimmel has created a visually striking design incorporating the Platinum Maple Leaf’s (PML) iconic symbol, and the Queen’s effigy that was in circulation when the PML was introduced in 1988. Selectively plated in platinum, they deliver an eye-catching contrast to the gold maple leaf-shaped coin. The $200 face value, double date (1988-2018) and 30 YEARS/ANS appear on reverse with a background pattern of subtle maple leaves that shimmer in the light, while The Queen’s 1988 effigy appears on the obverse against finely engraved details that bring added dimension and texture to the sculpted, three-dimensional leaf.
