Never-Before-Seen Finish Augments 2021 Maple Leaf Coins. This 2021 release of Canada's Maple Leaf marks not only the second mintage ever struck at the Royal Canadian Mint facility in Winnipeg, but the first-ever to feature the new Tailored Specimen finish, created just for this historic release! Featuring the familiar Maple Leaf design, this two-piece set contains two Tailored Specimen Maple Leaf coins: one struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% fine silver, and one struck in a full ounce of 99.99% pure gold.
With this all-new finish, raised devices are given a soft, satin finish while the fields are presented with fine angled lines that meet along the vertical center of each design. This "pyramid-like" effect is meant to invoke the architecture of the Winnipeg facility itself. In addition, each coin features a "W" mint mark on the reverse. Flawless Maple Leaf Coins from the First Day of Production.
Each coin available in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Specimen-70 (SP70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections - showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.
