With its innovative security features and extraordinary elegance, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is a stellar example of the Royal Canadians Mints craftsmanship and design expertise.
Struck from one ounce of .9999 pure silver, the reed-edged coin boasts images that are both iconic and tinged with patriotic reverence. The two sides are married in a sophisticated composition that weaves security enhancements right into the coins artistry for a dynamic design that replaces the former bullion finish.
- Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine silver.
- Features a unique privy mark to make the coins harder to counterfeit.
- Minted at the Royal Canadian Mint in Canada.
- Eligible for inclusion in Precious Metals IRA accounts.
The maple leaf design is textured to reveal a pattern of radial lines that have been struck to achieve a brilliant light-diffracting effect; in short, this coin appears to glow which is one of its most singular highlights. The coins purity mark flanks either side of the leaf and the inscriptions CANADA, 1 OZ ARGENT PUR, FINE SILVER encircle the leaf design.
The obverse design showcases Queen Elizabeth II in profile and wearing pearls. Its rim reads ELIZABETH II, 5 DOLLARS, and year. The smooth image of the queen was wrought in contrast to the radial-line filled background, a design feature that complements the reverse side as well. In both cases the radial finish results in a coin that appears illuminated and altogether stunning.
Aside from its elegant appearance, this coin also embodies state-of-the-art security features adopted by the Royal Canadian Mint. Each coin has a micro-engraved laser mark denoting the mintage year intricately incorporated into the maple leaf design; the mark is only visible, of course, under magnification. The radial lines replace the previous bullion finish of Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins and diminish the possibility of counterfeiting.
The evolved design, its updated security features, and its purity make this coin an extraordinary example of the mints continued excellence. Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins are also IRA-eligible as precious metals.
