Specifications

The remarkable Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is a silver bullion coin issued annually by the Canadian government. Since 1988 these silver coins have been minted by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM).

At 5 Canadian dollars, the official legal tender face value of this 1 oz coin is the highest among silver bullion coins. The coins purity is guaranteed at 9999 pure silver, also among the highest purities which have a standard of 999.

Featuring the iconic maple leaf symbol, the coin is guaranteed a weight of 1 troy ounce (31.1 g) of silver. The Royal Canadian Mint often issues variations on the standard coin by applying slight design changes such as colouring or privy marks.

The mark "Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur" is a hallmark of all Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins.

The obverse sports the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Three different versions exist; a young head, old head and older head. The issuing year and 5 dollar face value is also displayed.

The reverse depicts the maple leaf. On special releases a privy mark or colouring may be visible. The Silver Maple was the first coin to depict the new image of the Queen.

These silver coins make perfect gifts - a symbol of Canadian identity and one of the most recognized silver bullion coins worldwide. With among the lowest mintage of any silver coin in North America it will remain in high demand for decades to come.

The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.

These coins are discounted as they may be tarnished, scratched or visibly handled. In multiples of 25 these coins will ship in an RCM tube.
