For 2020, our Ottawa and Winnipeg facilities joined forces to create the first ever "made in Manitoba" tribute to our beloved Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin. It was the first pure silver numismatic coin struck at our Winnipeg facility, and its distinctive "W" mint mark and burnished (matte) finish set it apart. You'll find the same Silver Maple Leaf design and "W" mint mark on this 2021 fine silver collectible, but with a new coin finish that was inspired by our Winnipeg facility's striking exterior.

The "W" mint mark signifies that this fine silver numismatic coin was struck at our circulation production facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Both the reverse and obverse feature a tailored specimen finish that was inspired by our Winnipeg facility's striking exterior. The maple leaf celebrates our great nation in all its beauty and diversity, and on this pure silver coin, it speaks to a proud minting tradition and the timeless appeal of our sought-after Silver Maple Leaf coins. Only 8,000 of these coins are available worldwide.Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. For our first "W" mint mark pieces (2020), a die setter trainer, a Training Coordinator and a Quality Assurance associate from our Ottawa facility travelled to Winnipeg to share the knowledge and process required to achieve the coin's numismatic qualities.
