Royal Canadian Mint Releases 2 oz Silver Twin Maples Coin

When the Royal Canadian Mint first issued the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf several decades ago, it is doubtful that even employees at the mint would have anticipated the level of global popularity and acclaim that the coin has since achieved. In fact, even a little more than a decade ago, the Silver Maple Leaf’s annual mintage was less than a million coins. However, in recent years, that number has surged to an estimated 25 million.

Riding this wave of popularity, the Royal Canadian Mint has just issued the 2 oz Silver Twin Maples, a coin created in the spirit and lineage of the mint’s trademark 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf.

Currently, the coin is being distributed exclusively by Birch Gold Group, a precious metals company based in Burbank, CA.

Peter Reagan, financial market strategist at Birch Gold Group, knows that if the Silver Twin Maples coin is to follow in the footsteps of the Maple Leaf, it has to live up to a very high standard.

“We are honored and thrilled that the Royal Canadian Mint has selected Birch Gold Group to be the exclusive provider of this beautiful coin. Featuring Canada’s iconic maple leaf, it follows the tradition of the Silver Maple Leaf, which has become one of the most popular silver coins in the world for both investors and collectors. Now, we aspire for the Silver Twin Maples to ultimately rise to the same level of prominence and prestige, and we look forward to introducing it to our thousands of customers.”

With twice the silver content as the 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf, the 2 oz Silver Twin Maples retains some of the qualities and characteristics as its predecessor, while departing in other fashions.

First and foremost, this new coin has the same high level of purity as the 1 oz Maple Leaf, with a silver content of 99.99%. However, because of its greater silver content, it has a face value of $10 CAD.

One of the most noticeable differences on the two ounce coin is that the illustration on the reverse is adorned by a new design. Illustrated by Celia Godkin, the Silver Twin Maples features a pair of sugar maples leafs, which stand as an embodiment of Canada’s riches. Additionally, the coin features a reverse proof finish, with a frosted field and mirrored device.

The obverse features more familiarity, with the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Susanna Blunt returning for another generation of coins. The exact portrait has stood as a beacon of value for years, for investors and collectors alike.

Aside from the most obvious aesthetic changes, a closer inspection also shows traces of true modernization. New security measures, such as precise radial lines and a stylistic micro rendition of a maple leaf, will help to ensure the coin’s authenticity.

Will the Silver Twin Maples become as sought-after as the previous version? It’s hard to say today, however, Birch Gold’s Peter Reagan is excited for its prospects: “Early feedback from our customers, especially those who are familiar with the Silver Maple Leaf, has been tremendous. We’re also thrilled to be able to help our American customers place these coins into a Precious Metals IRA. We expect demand to grow quite rapidly.”

At the moment, the coin is only available from Birch Gold Group. For more info on the Silver Twin Maples coin, click here.
