Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins are the official silver bullion coins of Canada, and are part of the larger Maple Leaf collection that includes a gold, platinum, and palladium offering. These coins all have the same obverse and reverse design features and never have changes made to either side, with the exception of updates to Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy on the reverse.
The 2017 Silver Maple Leafs in this product listing are truly unique in that beautiful colorization has been added to the sugar maple leaf design on the reverse. Largely unchanged since its 1988 introduction, the Silver Maple Leaf coin is consistently one of the best performers in the precious metals marketplace in terms of sales and demand.
All 2017 Colorized Silver Maple Leaf coins listed here are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the production process at the mint.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Colorized Canadian Silver Maple Leaf you’ll find one of the simple colorizations in this series of six. Only the sugar maple leaf itself is colorized, with rich green tones in the center of the leaf giving way to browner hues at the tips of the leaf.
The obverse of all Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this image is exclusive to the obverse side of Canadian coinage, and not used by any other commonwealth nation.
