The RCM achieves the .9999 purity in their products, making them stand out from other mints. The Silver Maple Leaf is among the finest bullion coins in the world and this is mainly because the Royal Canadian Mint takes strides to stay at the top of precious metals technology; always giving invested buyers a reason to come back the next year. The Silver Maple Leaf series was first introduced in 1988 and although it has barely changed since, it has gained an even stronger following each year. The silver, in the maple leaf coins, is incredibly soft and is the highest quality silver available. This not only makes them more sought after but it also calls for the proper storage techniques so the coins do not scratch or tarnish.
The symbol that is on everything Canadian, the maple leaf, is featured on the reverse. Besides its thin stem, the coin's purity and weight are engraved for authentication purposes. Every Maple Leaf coin contains an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, by an up and coming sculptor. Dora de Pédery-Hunt was the chosen portrait artist in 1990 and her depiction was used on every year until 2003. Dora's portrayal of the Queen displays what most people see when thinking of the Queen. The Queen sits prominent, facing to her left, bearing the weight of a largely elegant crown. The Queen's demeanor is youthful and quiet, not demanding attention, just respect. The obverse is also conveniently stamped with the coin's legal tender value, $5, and the year of mintage. Whether you are looking to buy silver online as an investment or to continue a collection, consider the Silver Maple Leaf series! This series contains both high and low mintage coins, giving you a naturally diverse and valuable collection!
