New from the Royal Canadian Mint is a quartet of 99.99% fine silver coins that together form one complete maple leaf.
Designed by Canadian artist Celia Godkin, the four coin reverses offer a distinct portion of a sugar maple leaf as it would appear in its natural setting. Inscriptions on all four coins include FINE SILVER 1/4 OZ ARGENT PUR 9999, CANADA, and 2017.
Susanna Blunt’s effigy of the Queen appears on the four coin’s obverse. Circling the portrait are inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, D G REGINA, 3 DOLLARS, and SB for the artist’s initials.
