The Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf in 1988 along with the Platinum Maple Leaf. What set the coin apart instantly from other options on the market was the RCM’s use of .9999 fine silver content in the coin. No other annual-issue coins outside of Australian Kookaburra and Kangaroo coins use this level of purity for silver bullion coins.
Each year, you will most commonly find the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf available as a bullion coin. However, each year you can also find the Silver Maple Leaf available with bullion versions that have been enhanced with colorized visuals or gilded gold layers. In the case of the colorized coins, impressive new visuals are present on the coins.
The obverse field of all 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver Canadian Maple Leafs features the fourth-generation bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the latest effigy and was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, just the second Canadian artist ever to create an effigy of a monarch for Canadian coins.
On the reverse side of all 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver Canadian Maple Leafs is the iconic sugar maple leaf image. The sugar maple leaf has been a symbol of Canada since its colonial days when French traders were moving through the area. Walter Ott created the sugar maple leaf design seen on the reverse of the modern bullion coins in 1979 when the Gold Maple Leaf debuted. It is this side of the coin where you will find colorization added and it is limited to the sugar maple leaf only.
These 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver Canadian Maple Leafs are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are individually housed inside of protective plastic capsules and feature a colorized lacquer on the reverse that does not detract from the silver purity of the coin.
