Royal Canadian Mint 2014 Majestic Maple Leaves Coins highlight Canada’s iconic maple leaf symbol in unique examples of platinum, gold, silver, silver with autumn colors, and silver with jade.
Limited to 3,000 worldwide, collectors are guaranteed all five coins by enrolling in the Mint’s five-coin subscription service. Those wanting just the silver coins can join the three-coin subscription option which has a higher limit of 8,500.
"The maple leaf is a powerful national symbol—one with a distinct and elegant shape that captures much of Canada’s nature—winters that have influenced the way the world views this land and its people; breathtaking autumn colors that have captured the hearts of artists for centuries—but most of all, it symbolizes a land of opportunity to build a new life and enjoy the prosperity of free enterprise," describes the Royal Canadian Mint website.
