In 2000, 403,562 Silver Maple Leaf coins were minted, drawing in avid collectors and low mintage coin investors. The Royal Canadian Mint has had a long-standing relationship with the precious metals industry. The RCM has earned the trust of many skeptical, first-time investors who wanted to make sure they get what they paid for. 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. This makes for a much softer coin that should be stored proper to extend its life as a brilliant uncirculated coin.
Your 2000 silver Maple Leaf is guaranteed, by the RCM, to consist of one ounce of .9999 pure silver and will be packaged in a coin flip for protection during shipment. The obverse, of the Maple Leaf, displays 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 de Pédery-Hunt is the sculptor, who is responsible for this portrayal of the Queen. 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. Canada's national symbol, the maple leaf, is pictured, on the reverse, in pure silver. When viewed up close, a maple leaf is actually quite extraordinary and this is present in the design. The coin's actual weight and purity are both stamped on the coin.; this is to ensure the coin's authenticity. Whether you are looking to buy silver online for your own collection or for a loved one, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf series should not be overlooked!
