Silver Canadian Maple Leafs are popular silver bullion coins worldwide because of their pure, 99.99% silver content.
The silver Maple Leaf has the same obverse (front) and reverse designs as the gold Maple Leaf.
The obverse shows a bust of Queen Elizabeth II, whose appearance was updated in 1990 to feature the more mature monarch. In both versions, “ELIZABETH II” is at top, with the denomination and issue date at bottom.
The reverse depicts a maple leaf, the national symbol of Canada, hence the coin’s name. The reverse also has “CANADA” and the silver amount and purity.
Because of the gold Maple Leaf’s popularity, the Royal Canadian Mint began producing 99.99% pure silver coins. The Ottawa branch of the mint has been in operation since 1908 as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint, and it came under Canadian ownership in 1931. It became a corporation of the Crown in 1969.
The government of Canada guarantees the purity, weight and legal tender value of Canadian silver Maple Leaf coins.
