Coins Issued as a Coin Show Special Issue

Several special issues of the Maple Leaf coin are being produced to mark the anniversary. One of those is the silver Maple Leaf with a huge numeral thirty on the reverse. The thing that makes the coin to be released special, and ties into the World’s Fair of Money, is the special privy mark.

The mintage of this pure silver coin is limited to six thousand. It will be sold at the World’s Fair of Money from August 14 through August 18. Any remaining coins will then be sold on the Royal Canadian Mint’s website.
