Collectors are often more interested in the older silver Maple Leaf coins because of the lower mintages offered. After 2005, over one million coins are produced each year at the Royal Canadian Mint. Obviously, the lower minted coins carry a higher numismatic value and are among avid collectors' collective bucket lists. Only 250,445 Maple Leaf coins were minted in 1996 so it is no surprise these are sold at a higher premium than other silver Maple Leafs. For a collector, there isn't anything more satisfying then finding those harder to obtain coins.
Your 1996 Silver Maple Leaf is guaranteed to be one pure ounce of .9999 fine silver and is packaged in a coin flip for extra protection since it is a softer coin. Your coin shines with the flawless matte finish of a brilliant uncirculated coin that still looks "freshly minted" since 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. The reverse is also stamped with the coin's purity and weight. The obverse is always a lovely side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy of the Queen portrays her in a professional light. When many people think of the Queen, they envision a stern monarch wearing the royal crown. Dora de Pédery-Hunt was the lucky artist to illustrate her version of the Queen from 1990-2003. The obverse also is stamped with the coin's legal tender value and year of mintage. See why many collectors and investors are avid Maple Leaf collectors and enjoy the benefits of owning a brilliantly made coin.
