A new and unique collectible from the Royal Canadian Mint is its proof 2014 $20 Maple Leaves silver coin, featuring autumn coloring by day and a glow-in-the-dark appearance by night.
Struck in one-ounce of 99.99% pure silver and limited to 7,500 with 92% already sold, the $20 silver coin uses technology that unveils a single maple leaf when viewed in the dark.
In normal lighting and as designed by Canadian artist Celia Godkin, the coin offers a striking view of sugar maple leaves in their autumn colors with reds, oranges and yellow tints.
It’s "a beautiful gift for someone who enjoys the colours of autumn mixed with a fun glow-in-the-dark maple leave," describes the Mint.
Surrounding the maple leaves are inscriptions of 20 DOLLARS, 9999, FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR and the artist’s initials of CF.
Obverses offer the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II with encircling inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, CANADA and DG REGINA.
