All over the world, the Royal Canadian Mint is celebrated for the security, creativity, and high refining quality of its precious metal products. Especially over the past several years, the top-selling coin from the RCM has been the Canadian Silver Maple. The mint is back with the 2016 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf - Roll of 25 coins for those who are looking to stack silver bullion in bulk. Each of these rolls contains 25 coins stacked neatly in a plastic tube. Each coin, struck from .9999 fine silver, contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver, meaning each roll has a total of 25 troy ounces of actual silver weight (ASW).
On the reverse, Walter Ott's classic maple leaf image is centered in the design. Shown in full detail, the maple leaf (Canada's official national symbol since the 1960s) dominated the design. The purity "9999" appears on either side of the leaf, while the issuing country "CANADA" can be found at the top rim. The bottom rim bears the weight and composition specifications "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR," using both English and French. The maple leaf security privy mark is placed just above, with an almost-too-small-to-see number "16" contained within the leaf, indicating the year 2016.
On the obverse, the right-facing portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II designed by Susanna Blunt is shown. The Queen is shown without her royal diadem, but wears a necklace of pearls. "ELIZABETH II" runs across the top rim, while the denomination "5 DOLLARS" and the year-date "2016" are both inscribed at the bottom rim. Each coin uses a radial line finish, a special security feature that is near-impossible to replicate but also provides an attractive light-diffracting effect. The coin also has a reeded edge.
The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin continues to be among the most widely traded silver coins in the world, acquiring a dedicated following in many countries around the globe. Collectors appreciate the attractive designs and devices, while investors are drawn to the coins for their highly pure .9999 fine silver content and their cutting-edge security features. Buying a mint roll of 2016 Canadian Silver Maple Leafs (25 coins) can help you accumulate more silver at once, and makes it easy and convenient to store your metals.
