2024 Ultra-High Relief Pine Tree SML 1 oz Fine Silver Coin


The SML, standing proud in ultra high relief and backed by a dynamic forest view. Order today!

Covering nearly 40% of Canada’s total land area, our vast forests are a mosaic of diverse tree species, each one contributing shapes and colours to the woodland landscapes that fall within their natural range—like the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) of eastern Canada, and the balsam fir (Abies balsamea) of eastern and central Canada. Canada’s forests are a vital part of our national identity, and this special relationship inspired the new “heart of the forest”, pulsating field pattern on this 1 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin, where mist-shrouded trees fall in and out of view behind the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) rendered in ultra high relief.

YOUR 2024 UHR SML: A hit with collectors since the first issue in 2022, the ultra high relief (UHR) Silver Maple Leaf (SML) returns for 2024. This collectible is crafted in 1 oz. of 99.99% pure silver and features ultra high relief that elevates the engraving on the coin’s reverse.

NEW PULSATING PATTERN: This coin emanates the “heart of the forest” and adds a certain ethereal quality to your coin’s reverse, where mist-shrouded trees are struck in multiple depths, falling in and out of view and the forest seems to stretch on forever.

ELEVATING ART: The SML’s iconic leaf truly stands on your coin’s reverse, which features a peak relief height of 1.4 mm—higher than a typical 1 oz. SML.

ENHANCED LASER ENGRAVING: The “heart of the forest” pulsating effect is produced using an array of microscopic cubes that are positioned in such a way that they reflect light back to the viewer, creating the illusion of a shifting and never-ending view. This novel effect was achieved on the master tooling by using advanced laser engraving technology. Traditional engraving is no longer limited to millimetres—it is now possible to achieve engraved details as small as 0.02 mm.

THE POPULAR CHOICE & LIMITED MINTAGE: The SML is one of our most popular annual offerings and it tends to sell out quickly. Only 8,000 of these 2024 coins are available to collectors worldwide.

INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.

DESIGN: The raised sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaf is set against a “heart of the forest”, pulsating field pattern that showcases Canada’s vast forests; by tilting the coin, a unique light play creates the illusion of an endless forest on a misty day, with tall conifers seemingly falling in and out of view.

PACKAGING: Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
