The official silver bullion product of Canada, the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf was introduced in 1988. While its gold counterpart has several weights available in both bullion and proof, the silver version is available only in 1 oz and struck in bullion or proof versions, with occasional reverse proof and other special strikings.
Each 2015 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf available on Silver.com right now is a perfect specimen according to the NGC. Coins with an MS70 grade have their full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface.
Beginning in 2014, and ramping up in appearance in 2015, the Royal Canadian Mint added new security features to its bullion coins. Micro-laser engraved radial lines are visible on both the reverse and obverse side, while a maple leaf privy features below the sugar maple leaf design on the reverse. Inside this privy mark is the year of issue, which is only visible under high magnification.
The reverse of each coin features the sugar maple leaf in the middle, with the nation of issue engraved above, the purity of the coin on both sides of the maple leaf, and the weight and metal content engraved below. The special privy mark is featured in the lower right of the reverse design set.
On the obverse is the customary right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s right-profile portrait is a staple of all Canadian currency, and this particular image is a third-generation depiction on Silver Canadian Maple Leafs from Susanna Blunt.
