With an innovative design, the 2018 Proof Canadian Lightbulb Privy Maple Leaf 1 oz Silver Coin is an excellent example of the quality that the Royal Canadian Mint produces. The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf series features special privy marks that are included to mark and celebrate specials events and occasions. The 2018 silver coins celebrate and recognize those who contributed to the invention of electric light bulbs used in homes across the globe. These coins are reverse proofs, which is just one of the features that makes them highly collectible amongst investors and those who collect Canadian coins. Each of the coins contains .9999 pure silver.
For almost countless years, we relied on candles and lanterns to bring light into our homes once the sun went down. Thomas Edison is widely recognized as the man who developed the incandescent light bulb. However, two Canadians men were strong contributors in the pursuit of light. The 2018 Proof Canadian Lightbulb Privy Maple Leaf 1 oz Silver Coin pays homage to these men, Mathew Evans and Henry Woodward.
Each of the 2018 Proof Canadian Lightbulb Privy Maple Leaf 1 oz Silver Coins are offered with what is known as a reverse proof finish. This means that the reverse proof elements of this coin are the exact opposite of what is seen with a normal proof. The background of the coin has a frosted matte look to it, while the design elements feature a deeply-mirrored look to them.
The obverse design of the 2018 Proof Canadian Lightbulb Privy Maple Leaf 1 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed in 1998 by famed sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. This design is the fourth-generation design of Her Majesty. The coin design also includes engravings of the year of coin issue, coin face value and Elizabeth II.
The reverse design of the 2018 Proof Canadian Lightbulb Privy Maple Leaf 1 oz Silver Coin features the sugar maple leaf design that was created by Walter Ott. The lightbulb privy mark is featured on the lower-left of the design field. This privy mark celebrates the successful pursuit of electric lighting.
