The Royal Canadian Mint is well known for its brilliant designs and the purity of its silver. These qualities are again present in the mint’s latest Silver Canadian SuperLeaf Coin. The new 1.5 oz coin features the Maple Leaf design, first introduced in 2007 on the Million Dollar Maple Leaf, of which just five were minted that year. With that same brilliant design, currently, the 2017 1.5 oz Silver Canadian SuperLeaf Coin is available for purchase online at Silver.com!

The obverse side of each 2017 1.5 oz Silver SuperLeaf features the profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has been on the obverse of all Canadian coins since 1952, when she ascended to the throne of the United Kingdom. This particular depiction was created by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
The reverse side of each 2017 1.5 oz Silver SuperLeaf includes the Sugar Maple Leaf design, originally created for the Million Dollar Maple Leaf coins. Rather than the traditional view of just one Maple Leaf, the Silver SuperLeaf coin features a cluster of three leaves intertwined at their stems.
The Million Dollar Maple Leaf coin was a stunning 100 Kilogram Gold Coin that featured .99999 pure gold content and a $1 (CAD) face value. Only five of these coins were actually minted, and their beautiful Maple Leaf design captured the nation’s iconic symbol in a breathtaking new way.
This iconic image now appears on the Silver Canadian SuperLeaf coins, and incorporates the Royal Canadian Mint’s newest security features. Both faces of the coin include radial lines to deter counterfeiters and a micro-laser engraved maple leaf privy mark that displays the year of issue 17 under magnification.
Each 2017 1.5 oz Silver Canadian SuperLeaf Coin in this listing is in BU condition. This means the coin exhibits no signs of wear and tear, however, you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster or spotted surfaces or contact marks from the coining process.
As the official sovereign mint of Canada, the Royal Canadian Mint was originally founded in Ottawa in 1908. The mint operated exclusively in that one facility until the 1980’s, when a second facility was opened in Winnipeg to boost production capacity.
