The Royal Canadian Mint is a world leader in bullion coin security, which explains why the 2017 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf 1oz coin is so attractive to investors.
In addition to a micro-etched security mark of nested maple leafs surrounding the number "17" for the year-date 2017, the 2017 Silver Maple continue the Royal Canadian Mint tradition of replacing the blank field of older designs with a special radial design that not only combats fingerprints, it also deters counterfeiters.
The obverse of the 2017 Canadian Maple Lead 1oz silver coin showcases the image of Queen Elizabeth II, as designed by artist Susanna Blunt. The Queen's name, denomination of $5,and year date of 2017 follow the curve of the rim.
The reverse features the iconic Walter Ott design of a maple leaf, flanked by inscriptions of the coin's .9999 "four nines" silver purity. Just under the lower right lobe of the maple leaf is the micro-engraved security mark of nested positive and negative maple leafs, encompassing the number 17.
