The first release of the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf came in 1988, the same year in which the Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf. The Royal Canadian Mint’s issue of the Silver Maple Leaf marked the world’s first-ever .9999 fine silver coin. To this day, one of the only other mints to regularly issue silver coins this pure is the Perth Mint.
Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins remain a major global series with mintage figures that often trail only the Silver American Eagle from the United States Mint in terms of popularity and demand. The Silver Maple Leaf is rarely issued as a proof coin, but commemorative issues do come with distinctive visuals.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse of 2018 2 oz 30th Anniversary Silver Canadian Maple Leafs. The design shows the Queen in right-profile relief as designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003. This is the fourth-generation effigy during her reign and the first portrait during her reign to lack a crown in the image.
A sugar maple leaf is depicted on the reverse side of 2018 30th Anniversary Silver Maple Leafs. The coins come with a powerful image of the sugar maple leaf and come with a laser-engraved background element. This element is actually found on both sides of the coin and offers a repeating pattern of the number “30” with a maple leaf next to it.
These 2018 2 oz 30th Anniversary Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Two-Coin Sets come with beautiful presentation packaging from the mint.

Included in this set are a 1 oz silver proof coin with frosted designs and mirrored fields, as well as a reverse-proof specimen with mirrored designs and a frosted field.
