The Royal Canadian Mint has had a long-standing relationship with the precious metals industry. Over the years, the RCM has minted coins and currency for their own but also for other countries as well. Since they have supplied the world with coins and currency, the RCM has earned the trust of many skeptical, first-time investors. This outstanding and respectable reputation has only increased with time, creating more people who are interested in the silver Maple Leaf coins. The Maple Leaf coin also offers a higher purity than other silver bullion coins: .9999, instead of .999. The extra 9 in purity not only adds a number on the coin but also adds interest among collectors and investors.
The reverse design pictures Canada's national symbol, the maple leaf. When viewed up close, a maple leaf is actually quite extraordinary and its details come out on the coin. The coin's actual weight and purity are both stamped on the coin.; this is to ensure the coin's authenticity.Dora de Pédery-Hunt is the sculptor, who is responsible for this portrayal of the Queen: a younger, more poised Queen Elizabeth II, who sits at a side angle with her famous crown gently placed on top of her curly tendrils. Dora was the first Canadian citizen to have the honor of designing an effigy for the Queen. The coin's denomination of $5 and its date of mintage are both noted on the obverse as well. Investing in silver can seem tricky but the silver Maple Leaf series is here to put your anxious feelings to rest. Since 1988, this collection has one of the most popular bullion coin series in the world and still holds that title.
