The 1990s represented one of the greatest booms in the global economy in modern history. The American economy was growing at impressive rates, wages were rising, and jobs were plentiful. These strong market conditions in North America and around the globe pulled many investors away from silver coins, and it was evident in the mintage figures for many popular collections. Right now, 1995 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

The price of silver had steadily been rising in the mid-1990s as the markets moved higher. The combination of factors helped to dampen the appeal of buying 1 oz silver coins for many investors. While silver averaged $5.20 per ounce in 1995, it was also one of the more volatile years for silver in terms of highs and lows. It traded around $4.65 per ounce in early March, spiked above $6.00 per ounce in May, and spent the remainder of 1995 in retreat below the $6.00 mark.
All of these factors combined to push demand and mintage for the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf down for a second year in a row. After 889,946 coins were struck in 1994, the Royal Canadian Mint saw that figure drop nearly three-fold down to 326,244 for the 1995 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf. This was just the beginning though as the elevator hadn’t reached the bottom just yet.
On the obverse of Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins you’ll find a regal, elegant depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1990 by Dora de Pedery-Hunt as the third-generation portrait of Her Majesty, this design is unlike others in its use of more ornate jewels in the Queen’s attire.
For the reverse of the 1995 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf, the Royal Canadian Mint continued with Walter Ott’s original 1979 design of the sugar maple leaf. The maple leaf was floated as the national emblem for Canada in the Le Canadien newspaper in Lower Canada as early as 1836.
