Taking art to all-new depths with the first Super Incuse Kilo Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin. This is the ultimate expression of the mapleespecially in 2021, which marks the 25th anniversary of Canadas arboreal emblem. On a typical incuse-struck coin, the maximum relief depth represents roughly 10% of the coin gauge, but we went well beyond that with this kilo coin. Thanks to new technology developed by our Research and Development team, the SMLs maple leaf boasts an unprecedented incuse depth of 4.5 mm thats about 35% of the coin gauge.And by using a modified reverse proof finish, we made sure all eyes will be on the deep-set maple leaf that shines from within. Introducing the first ever Super Incuse Kilo Silver Maple Leaf (SML)! Thanks to new technology developed by the Royal Canadian Mints R&D team, the maple leaf engraved on your coins reverse features an unprecedented incuse depth of 4.5 mm. With Super Incuse technology, youll see the SMLs famous maple leaf in a whole new way.
The engraving is just as intricate and beautifully detailed as previous SML coins, but on this extraordinary piece, the extreme relief depth highlights the complexity of the maple leafs shape and features. Crafted from 1 kg of beautiful 99.99% pure silver, this spectacular showpiece features a 25 maple leaf privy mark in honour of the 25th anniversary of the maples (Acer) designation as the official arboreal emblem of Canada.

For the first time ever, its famous maple leaf has been struck using Super Incuse technology, which gives it an incuse depth of 4.5 millimetres. A modified reverse proof finish ensures the focus is on the brilliant relief. The reverse also includes the engraved words CANADA and FINE SILVER 1 kg ARGENT PUR, as well as the purity standard of 9999 and a 25 maple leaf privy mark in honour of the 25th anniversary of thearboreal emblem of Canada, the maple (Acer). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, along with the engraved face value 250 DOLLARS and the year 2021.
Using the knowledge gained by developing UHR (Ultra High Relief) technology and the 1 oz. Super Incuse SML launched earlier this year, we were able to go from a standard incuse depth of 1.2 mm to an unprecedented 4.5 mm on this kilo coin. UHR adds height while Super Incuse adds extreme depth, but its a similar principle we just inverted it. Yannick Cormier, Senior Research Engineer.The SMLs iconic maple leaf is the same one that appears on the Gold Maple Leaf (GML) coin in fact, thats where it made its debut. The leaf on this coin is that of the sugar maple, Acer saccharum. True to its name, the sugar maples sap has the highest concentration of sugar, and thats why this Canadian maple is prized by maple syrup producers. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a premium Royal Canadian Mint-branded wood case with a black beauty box.
