There were only 955,694 silver Maple Leaf coins minted in 2005. This year was the last of the lower minted coins, where the number of coins minted falls under 1 million. The 2005 Silver Maple Leaf coins are incredibly hard to find for this reason and thus, carry a higher premium than other coins. The Silver Maple Leaf series has proven itself to be worthy enough for any serious collector or investor's collection. Similar to other silver coin series, the Silver Maple Leaf has kept its original design through the years. The same design does not deter interested buyers away, since the RCM is known for constant technological advances when it comes to counterfeit prevention. What may look like the same coin from year to year, its actual structure has constantly changed. Being made out of .9999 pure silver, the silver Maple Leaf coins are incredibly soft and easy to scratch. Although the .9999 silver purity is alluring, collectors and investors need to be aware that the storage of these coins is of upmost importance. Keeping your Maple Leafs in a hard plastic capsule or their original tubes not only protects them from tarnishing but also scratching easily as well.
The two designs on the Maple Leaf coins haven't changed since their first year of mintage in 1988. The obverse design includes an apathetic Queen Elizabeth II, portrayed as relaxed and not wearing her usual extravagant crown. The obverse is also stamped with the coin's denomination and year of mintage. The reverse reveals a delicately illustrated maple leaf, freshly plucked from its tree, its veins still plump with water. The coin's weight and purity are also stated on the reverse for validity purposes. Investing in silver is good. Investing in silver coins is better. Investing in silver Maple Leafs is a very smart decision.
