2010 $5 Fine Silver Piedfort Coin - Maple Leaf

Regular price $90.00
/

This fine silver collectable coin maintains the same purity standard established by the internationally recognized Silver Maple Leaf Coins with the added piedfort thickness of 3.84 mm. Piedfort coins, whose name comes from the French for ‘heavy measure", originated in medieval Europe. Coin-makers deliberately made their die templates thick and heavy to ensure they would not be confused with regular coins. This added weight and substance caught the eyes of kings and nobles and soon piedforts were being displayed in the lavish courts of Europe as enviable symbols of wealth and power.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
