After 2005, the RCM raised the amount of Maple Leaf coins minted every year so only the older coins contain actual lower mintages. But the differing mintages from year to year isn't the only reason why many collectors and investors flock to the Maple Leaf series every year. The Canadian maple leaf has been used as an icon in the Northern country for a long time. The actual leaf is depicted on every Maple Leaf coin to celebrate the tradition of the maple. Another reason that intrigues investors to buy the Silver Maple Leaf coins is the purity of silver in their products. Instead of settling for the .999 purity, the RCM takes pride that they can stamp each coin with a .9999 purity. This extreme increase in purity makes for a softer coin and one that needs to be properly stored.
Your 1993 Silver Maple Leaf glimmers with a "freshly struck" patina that has resembles more of a proof coin than a BU. Dora de Pédery-Hunt, whose design of Queen Elizabeth II was used on the Maple Leaf from 1990-2003, portrays the Queen in a way many of us know. The Queen balances tall and pretentious crown on her head, all the while sitting incredibly straight and to the side. The coin's $5 denomination is etched below the Queen, along with the date of mintage. Celebrating how naturally beautifully the maple leaf really is, the reverse showcases a large maple leaf, designed in silver . The reverse also bears the stamp of the coin's purity and authenticity. There are many reasons why you should consider investing in the Silver Maple Leaf series, but you should just see for yourself. There is an enjoyment in knowing you own something that carries more than one value. Become a proud owner of this prestigious series!
