While many national bullion coin programs introduce silver and gold counterparts in quick succession, the Royal Canadian Mint waited nearly a decade between the release of its gold coin (1979) and the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf (1988). Upon its release however, the silver coin attracted the attention of millions around the globe because it is a product of one of the world’s finest mints.
Each of these 2015 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leafs is identical to the standard silver bullion coin, with one crucial exception. The maple leaf featured on the reverse side of the coin is gilded in 24-karat gold, creating a brilliant contrast between the silver background and the leaf itself. These coins are available for sale today in brilliant uncirculated condition.
On the reverse side of the coin is that gilded maple leaf, the standard image used on all Silver Canadian Maple Leafs since the coin series was introduced. The obverse side of the coin bears Susanna Blunt’s right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Engravings on this side of the coin include “Elizabeth II,” the face value, and year of minting. Susanna Blunt is the third artist to create a portrait of Her Majesty for use on the coin series.
The Royal Canadian Mint was first opened in 1908 to process and refine precious metals discovered in the Yukon Territories. Over the course of its more than 100-year history, the Mint’s dedication to quality and innovation has helped establish it as one of the top precious metal refiners in the world.
