Stan Witten, a Canadian artist and senior engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint, has created an overlay design of three silver maple leaves, each leaf becoming progressively smaller and selectively enhanced with its own distinctive finish. Each coin in this set is encapsulated and all four are presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell protected by a black beauty box. Please note that the accompanying photos of the clamshell and beauty box are centered on the top side; only a portion of each is shown. All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched.
Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins.
Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces.
However, tilting the coin may result in one side being slightly out of focus. Please review all of the photos provided to obtain the best understanding of the coin's actual appearance. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting.We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
