The Silver Maple Leaf from the Royal Canadian Mint marks its 30th anniversary release in 2018. These beautiful silver bullion coins joined the Maple Leaf Series following the 1979 issue of the Gold Maple Leaf. Unlike its gold counterpart, the Silver Maple Leaf is available in just the 1 oz weight each year.
As of 2018, Silver Maple Leaf Coins feature the Royal Canadian Mint’s new MINTSHIELD Technology. The goal of MINTSHIELD is to prevent “white spots” on silver bullion coinage. The application is invisible to the eye and protects the intrinsic value present in the beautiful finish of all Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins.
On the obverse of 2018 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, this is the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to feature on Canadian coinage since 1952. It is the only image of the Queen on Canadian coins without a crown.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf focuses on the sugar maple leaf in the center of the design field. Engravings identify the nation of issue, purity of the coin, and its metal content and weight. The background on both sides includes radial lines for security against counterfeiting. The reverse also has a micro-laser engraved maple leaf privy that features “18” at the center of the privy, and it is only visible under magnification.
All 1 oz Maple Leaf coins from the Royal Canadian Mint now also feature Bullion DNA. This additional form of security takes that micro-engraving and encodes, scans, and records it at the mint for future authentication.
All Canadian Maple Leaf coins are produced at the Royal Canadian Mint. Opened in 1908 with a sole facility in Ottawa, the mint expanded in the 1980s to feature a second facility in Winnipeg.
