A number of traits set the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf apart from other national silver bullion coin programs. Among the notable features is the use of consistent designs each year. The image of the maple leaf has not changed on these coins since their introduction in 1988. However, the coins in this set have added design elements and a slightly altered maple leaf to help set the coins apart from the standard-issue coins in the series.
In total, the 2015 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Premium Set includes five coins: a 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz coin. The 1 oz coin stands out in the collection because its maple leaf has been covered in a red enamel to create a brilliant contrast between the silver background field and the maple leaf itself. The design on the reverse side is consistent across all five coins in the set.
On the reverse side is the maple leaf. Surrounding the leaf on all five coins is an ornate wreath, and the engravings “Canada” and the weight, purity, and metal content of each individual coin. The obverse side bears the standard right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as featured on all Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 to process precious metals from the Yukon Territories for the British Empire. Producing gold bullion bars to repay British debt from World War II and minting Olympic medals for the Vancouver 2010 games are among the historical production highlights of the mint.
