There are many symbols of good luck in this world, from a horseshoe hung over a doorway to a rabbit’s foot. Arguably the most recognizable and commonly referenced is the four-leaf clover. A rare variation on the typical three-leaf clover (faith, hope, love), that four leaf represents luck and gives the four-leaf clover its association with luck. The 2016 Four Leaf Clover Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Reverse Proof is available now from JM Bullion.

A reverse proof specimen, as the name suggests, offers an artful twist on the standard finish of a proof coin. Instead of deeply-mirrored background fields and contrasting matte designs, these reverse proof Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins feature a strong, frosted background field offset by the deeply-mirrored, clear finish of the design features.
The Canadian Maple Leaf series of bullion and proof coins are available in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. The most popular coin from the Royal Canadian Mint, these products occasionally feature unique privy marks. Among the distinctive privy marks offered in 2016 is the Four Leaf Clover Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Reverse Proof coin.
On the coin’s reverse face you’ll find the iconic sugar maple leaf design, surrounded by standard engravings of the nation of issue, purity, weight, and metal content of the coin. The four-leaf clover privy is situated in the lower-left field of the coin.
The obverse bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. Each of these coins earned a perfect proof grade of PF70 from the NGC, indicating a product with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws.
