Gainesville Coins offers 2014 Canadian Silver Maple Leafs 1 oz in Tubes of 25 coins. The Royal Canadian Mint struck these coins from one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver for a total of 25 troy ounces per tube. This is the purest unlimited-mintage silver bullion coin in the world. The Royal Canadian Mint has introduced new anti-counterfeiting measures with the 2014 Silver Maple Leaf, unmatched by any other mint. President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint, Ian E. Bennett, declared “After 25 years of producing the world’s purest and one of its most popular silver bullion coins, the Mint is pleased to offer investors even more value by incorporating technology which also makes our Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin a world leader in security.”
These new measures include the micro-engraved laser security mark that was first introduced on the 2013 Gold Maple Leaf. In addition, a new finish was applied to both sides of the coin. The finish contains many delicate radial lines on the field. These lines are cut to a specific angle and pitch to produce a light-diffracting effect. These features will be standard on the Silver Maple going forward.
The tiny micro-engraved mark on reverse is similar to a privy mark. This mark consists of a positive and a negative image of a maple leaf nested one inside the other. When viewed under magnification, the last two digits of the mint year, “14” can be seen in the middle. The new radial-line finish is engraved on the master dies with a tolerance measured in microns. All of these security features produce a light-diffracting effect.
Highlighting the obverse is an eloquent portrait of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susan Blunt. She is surrounded by the legend, “ELIZABTH II, 2014, 5 DOLLARS.” The reverse showcases the famous Canadian Maple Leaf design. Encircling the leaf are the inscriptions, “CANADA, 1 OZ ARGENT PUR, FINE SILVER.” The new security micro-engraved leaf is struck on the lower right side of the larger maple leaf. The purity is found twice on the reverse, “9999.”
