The Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coin debuted in 1988 from the Royal Canadian Mint, nearly a decade after the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf became the second-ever gold bullion coin for private investment. The Silver Maple Leaf bears the same designs on the obverse and reverse every year, which are shared with the gold, platinum, and palladium versions of the coin as well.

On the obverse of all Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s effigy appears in right-profile relief and this is the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty to appear on Canadian coins. Designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, it is just the second design ever to appear on Canadian coins from the hand of a Canadian artist.
The reverse of all 2018 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins includes the sugar maple leaf. The official symbol of Canada, the maple leaf has appeared on Canadian documents and government seals for more than a century. Included on both sides of the coins are radial lines for increased counterfeiting security. This reverse side also has a laser-engraved maple leaf privy with a security marker included within that is visible only under magnification and reads “18” for the release year.
Each 2018 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coin in this tube is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks.
