Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins were introduced in 1988, almost a decade after the Canadian Maple Leaf coin series was introduced in 1979 in a gold version. The silver coin is one of the most popular in the world, with 29 million minted and sold in 2014.
The Royal Canadian Mint uses the same image of the iconic sugar maple leaf on the reverse of the coin each year. As of 2015, new security features have been introduced on the reverse to combat counterfeiting. Using micro-laser engraving, the RCM added radial lines and a small, repeating maple leaf image below the primary design set.
On the reverse face of the 2016 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is the image of the sugar maple leaf, with the engraving “Canada” above, the coin’s purity (9999) on either side of the leaf, and the metal content and weight of the coin.
The obverse bears Susanna Blunt’s depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Blunt’s portrait of Her Majesty is the third-generation image featured on Canadian coins, and was introduced in 2004 after its creation in 2003.
Each of the 2016 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins in this product listing has a Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, but may feature breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from striking.
