The Silver Canadian Maple Leaf was introduced in 1988 as a counterpart to the already popular Gold Canadian Maple Leaf. The two coin programs share a common design theme. The nation’s official emblem, the sugar maple leaf, is featured on the reverse side every year.
On the reverse face of the 2016 Silver Canadian Maple Leafs in this listing is the national emblem of the country, the maple leaf. The design also includes micro-laser engraved security features. Radial lines are visible around the surface, and a maple leaf privy has the year of issue engraved in it, but it is only visible under magnification.
The obverse bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this is the third-generation image of Her Majesty to appear on the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf bullion series.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908, and today is one of the finest facilities in the world. It has handled the production of everything from gold bars to Olympic medals for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
