In 1988, the first Canadian Silver Maple Leaf was made. Although the obverse design never changes, the desire to own these prized beauties has only grown throughout the US and the world. Low mintages is not the first thought that comes to mind when thinking of the Silver Maple Leafs but even though there are a lot made every year, certain years are becoming harder and harder to find, thus increasing their numismatic value. It's a phenomenon that has changed dealing in the silver bullion industry and that keeps collectors and investors a like coming back for more.
Your 2006 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" even though it's almost 10 years old. 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. At age 79, she looks more youthful than ever when she had this portrait done of her. Susanna Blunt was the lucky artist to illustrate her version of the Queen in 2004. 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.
