Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins are traditionally available only in 1 oz silver bullion. However, each release year does feature a number of unique and distinctive versions of the coin. In most cases, these are bullion versions of the specimen that have been given a privy mark or visually altered with the application of colorized lacquers and gilded gold layers. Right now, the 2020 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Gilded Coin is available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Each of the 2020 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Gilded Coins in this product listing comes to you from the standard bullion issue of the coin. The specimens are housed individually in plastic capsules and are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Gilded gold coins have a beautiful layer of 24-karat gold applied to the design surface of the coin.
In the case of the 2020 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Gilded Coin, the application of the gilded layer is limited to the reverse. The monarch’s portrait on the obverse is never colorized or gilded. Instead, the iconic sugar maple leaf on the reverse side of the coin is given this application of gold to enhance the visual contrast of the design element.
The obverse face of 2020 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Gilded Coins includes the fourth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured in right-profile relief in this portrait with earrings and a necklace, but no crown. This is the first effigy of a monarch since King George VI without a crown on the monarch’s head. This bust of the Queen comes from Susanna Blunt and was designed in 2003.
On the reverse side of 2020 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Gilded Coins is a depiction of the sugar maple leaf. This iconic emblem has been associated with Canadian provinces, villages, and towns since the 17th century when the first French trappers and explorers began settling in the area. Today, it is part of the national fabric and is featured on the national flag.
