A unique Canadian Maple Leaf error is certified by NGC. Interestingly, besides being much lighter than normal, at 25.1g instead of the correct 31.1g, this piece is also much smaller than normal. Its planchet is nearly 2mm smaller in diameter than those used for silver Maple Leaf bullion coins.
This important error was submitted to NGC by Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. Although the coinís owner has only 0.8 ounces of silver instead of the one ounce stated on the coin, they probably are not disappointed. The value of this unique mint error undoubtedly exceeds the bullion value of this coin by many, many multiples.
