Limited to a mintage of 10,000 each, the 99.99% pure silver coins feature identical designs showcased around a central large maple leaf that is surrounded by over 100 maples leaves.

Created by Royal Canadian Mint engraver José Osio, the $20 silver coin features a sunken central impression of a maple leaf filled in translucent red enamel. At $114.95, the Mint indicates 79% of them have sold. The Mint notes on the coin’s product page that the red maple leaf has been a symbol of Canadian identity for nearly 300 years.

The $3 silver coin features a subtle maple leaf "impression" that creates a 3D illusion. Less expensive at $59.95, sales are at 90% of maximum. As a highlight, the Mint promotes that the coin could easily be transformed into a pendant.

Obverses for both silver coins offer Susanna Blunt’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II with inscriptions of "CANADA," the date "2013" and the face value of "3 DOLLARS" or "20 DOLLARS."
