Since 1988, the Royal Canadian Mint has proudly been producing one of the finest silver coins currently available, the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf. This coin is .9999 pure silver, making the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf one of the purest government minted coins on the market, making it well above the industry standard of 99.9% fineness. Additionally, the coin carries a face value of five Canadian dollars, the highest face value found on any silver coin.
Starting in 2014 the maple leaf now has a new security feature on each 1 oz silver and gold coins. Each coin from 2014 on now bears a visual Security Feature. Intricately micro-engraved design produced by the Mint’s innovative use of laser technology confirms the authenticity of the coin.
The obverse side bears the image of Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II in profile, and bears the inscription of her name, the coin’s face value and the year of minting. The reverse side bears the image of the Maple Leaf, Canada’s National Symbol.
