Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins debuted in 1988 from the Royal Canadian Mint. The Gold Maple Leaf initiated the program at the RCM, with its own debut coming in 1979 as the first major gold bullion coin on the market aside from the South African Krugerrand.
All new 2017 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins feature the newest security features from the Royal Canadian Mint to further prevent counterfeiting. These include the use of a micro-laser engraved maple leaf image below the sugar maple that has the year of issue inside the design. Radial lines are also engraved on both sides to enhance protection of these brilliant silver bullion coins.
On the obverse of the 2017 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this depiction of Her Majesty is just the third design to feature on the obverse of Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins since 1988.
The reverse of all Silver Maple Leaf coins features the iconic sugar maple leaf design in the center, which has long featured on these coins across all metal versions of the coin. Engravings on this face including the word “Canada” across the top and the coin’s purity, metal content, and weight.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. Founded in 1908, it operated out of its sole facility in the federal capital city of Ottawa until the 1980s. Facing increased demand for bullion and proof products, and struggling to keep up with circulation currency production, the RCM opened a second facility in Winnipeg.
