It is always a phenomenon when a coin series is successful by maintaining its simplicity. The silver Maple Leaf series falls under such a category, never changing the design of the coin but still gathering more popularity through the years. This could only be due to the fact that these coins are made out of .9999 pure silver, a rare purity among silver bullion products. Also, the Royal Canadian Mint is on the list of top mints in the world, always raising the bar in quality with their precious metals products. Investors and collectors are looking for those kinds of credentials when wanting to spend their money on an investment. Only 343,800 Maple Leaf coins were minted in 1992, making these coins harder and harder to find but also increasing their numismatic value.
The monarch of the Commonwealth of Nations is featured on almost all of their coins and currency. Talented artists are always competing to win the honor of creating a new portrait of the Queen. This portrait should not only reveal what the Queen looks like but the onlooker should get a sense of who the Queen is in just one look. Dora de Pédery-Hunt was the lucky artist to illustrate her version of the Queen in 1990, with the Queen wearing a large crown on her endearing tendrils. The obverse also is stamped with the coin's legal tender value and year of mintage. The Royal Canadian Mint has a reputation of making their BU coins have a proof-like sheen to them. This technique makes the maple leaf design, on the reverse, pop out of the coin. Many are ignorant to how beautifully detailed the maple leaf is but RCM brings it to life through the magnificent design.
