Similar to the US, most countries have their own silver dollar that is marked with that country's insignia, historical etchings, and whatever else that is important to that nation. The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf displays much of the history of Canada and is the perfect way to mark a special occasion for loved ones. The iconic Maple Leaf, Queen Elizabeth II, and the .9999 silver purity content are just a few reasons why the Silver Maple Leaf isn't just about the silver but the high quality that comes along with it.
Your 2008 Silver Maple Leaf is finished with the finest strike a brilliant uncirculated coin has ever seen! Your coin glimmers with a "freshly struck" patina that has literally stood the test of time. Since your coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition, there should be no scratch marks on the face of the coin. The obverse design was designed by artist, Susanna Blunt, in 2004 and has remained the obverse design ever since. Queen Elizabeth II is the symbol on most currency from the Commonwealth of Nations and usually she is depicted as high-strung with her tall crown on head. But in this portrait, she is dressed in casual with the exception of a delicate string of pearls, laced around her neck. The coin's $5 denomination is etched below the Queen, along with the date of mintage. The reverse reveals a large and perfected in detail maple leaf, exploring how beautiful a maple leaf actually is up close. Etched around the leaf is the coin's weight and purity. The Silver Maple Leaf series is versatile when it comes to investing and gift-giving. Many investors enjoy giving these silver coins to their children or children's children to mark special occasions. The gift of investing comes with no regrets!
