The Silver Canadian Maple Leaf is one of the world’s most popular bullion coin programs. While it features the same designs from year to year, occasionally the Royal Canadian Mint steps outside the box to make unique additions to its popular silver coin series. Right now the 2015 1 oz Sheep Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf is available on Silver.com with a reverse proof finish.
- Arrives in a protective plastic slab to ensure the coin’s stunning condition.
- Consists of one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver.
- Bears a face value of $5 (CAD) backed by the Canadian government.
- Issued a Proof 68 grade by the NGC.
- Struck in a brilliant reverse proof finish.
- Features an additional Sheep Privy to honor the Year of the Sheep (Goat).
Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins are known for their consistent design, but in limited cases privy marks are added to the popular bullion coins to create renewed demand. The Sheep Privy on these coins honors the Year of the Sheep (Goat) on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, and includes the image of a mountain goat.
Each 2015 1 oz Sheep Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf available now has a PF68 grade from the NGC. Coins in this condition have their full, original luster, but also feature three to four minor detracting flaws on the surface, which are limited in scope to minuscule contact marks.
As a reverse proof coin, these specimens have the exact opposite finish of a traditional proof striking. Now, the design set bears a deeply-mirrored, clear finish to it, while the background field is dominated by a strong, frosted finish.
The reverse bears the image of the sugar maple leaf found on all Canadian Maple Leaf coins. In addition, a small Sheep Privy mark has been added to the lower left of the primary design set in honor of the Year of the Sheep.
On the obverse you’ll find the customary image of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, Her Majesty’s effigy has gone through three design upgrades during the history of the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coin program.
