2023 Canada $50 35th Anniversary of the SML 5oz. Fine Silver (No Tax)

It’s not just about marking milestones: anniversaries are an opportunity for reflection and celebration, and the Royal Canadian Mint is proud of what the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin has achieved in its 35-year history – from setting a high standard in purity to introducing cutting-edge features that have made it the world’s most secure silver bullion coin.

This 5 oz.-sized 35th anniversary celebration embodies the same qualities that continue to define the SML: beauty, purity and classic craftsmanship. On both the obverse and reverse, selective gold plating adds a rich, golden gleam that reflects our pride in the SML, whose namesake leaf continues to captivate collectors and investors worldwide.

Designed by former RCM Master Engraver Walter Ott, the SML’s namesake leaf remains one of the most famous Canadian coin designs. Its sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaf is a recognizable symbol of supreme craftsmanship and purity: all SML coins are minted in one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver, making it one of the world’s purest silver bullion coins.

Enhanced with selective gold plating, your coin’s reverse features Walter Ott’s now-iconic maple leaf design that has graced every Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin since 1988. The SML design is flanked by intertwined vines and maple leaves designed by artist Tony Bianco, who also created the banner marking the 35th anniversary of the SML in 2023. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.

Special Features:
• A 35th anniversary celebration. Canada’s Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin turns 35 in 2023 and this special commemorative issue celebrates its 35 years of successes and achievements as one of the most sought-after silver bullion coins.
• 5 oz. of pure silver. The coin has been meticulously crafted in 5 oz. of 99.99% pure silver – five times more silver than the one-ounce SML coin.
• Gold plating! While Walter Ott’s iconic maple leaf design is as intricate as ever, the selective application of (yellow) gold plating on the reverse highlights the ornate flourishes that celebrate the SML’s anniversary in 2023. The obverse also features selective gold plating.
• Features a matte proof finish. The field’s satin shine creates a pleasing contrast that ensures the focus is on the brilliant relief.
• A very low mintage! With a mintage of just 2,000 coins, this limited collectible brings added distinction and prestige to any collection.

The coin is encapsulated and presented in a black Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
