Canadian Silver Maple
The maple leaf is the instantly recognizable, iconic symbol of Canada and it is the central focus of the design of this highly collectible silver coin. The coin was first released by the Canadian Royal Mint in 1988 and in the years following has actually changed design on several occasions. These have included special commemorative editions, holographic enhancements and the addition of various privy marks. The basic design features have remained unchanged though.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that is unique to Canada and the signature maple leaf adorns the reverse. The coin is minted in .9999 fine Silver, an attribute that makes it one of the purest of the collectible silver coins.
