Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins are issued by the Government of Canada, and minted by the Royal Canadian Mint. These coins are well known for their beautiful design, high purity content, and worldwide popularity. Investors appreciate the ease of liquidity and the high quality standards of the Royal Canadian Mint. Another benefit to consider is the value Silver Maple Leafs offer, when compared to other government minted silver bullion coins. Like the American Silver Eagle coin and other government minted silver coins, the Silver Maple Leaf coin is legal tender.
The value of the coin is based on the spot price of silver, and the face value on the coin is $5 Canadian dollars. This coin is also unique for its purity, 99.99%. Where as other silver coins are typically .999 fine silver. Beginning in 2014, the RCM launched its Bullion DNA program, which is a security feature. The micro engraving is authenticated by a special decoder that makes this coin virtually fool proof. The obverse displays a profile of HRH Elizabeth II, and the reverse features the popular maple leaf design.
