All over the world, investors clamor to get their hands on the Royal Canadian Mint's flagship bullion coin, the Silver Maple Leaf. These innovative and beautiful coins are among the most trusted in the world, thanks in no small part to the high quality of their precious metal content. You can purchase Silver Maples in bulk with the 2017 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Box of 500 Coins (BU). Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver and is struck from .9999 fine silver in addition to being given a face value of 5 Dollars.
On the reverse, the design shows the classic image of a maple leaf that was originally created by artist Walter Ott. The veins and folds of the leaf are rendered in incredible detail. A much smaller maple leaf emblem is placed below as a privy mark, with the two digits "17" for the year micro-engraved within the leaf. The purity "9999" is found on each side of the main maple leaf. The issuing country "CANADA" is inscribed at the top rim, while the bottom half of the rim reads, "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR."
The obverse uses Susanna Blunt's right-facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen wears a pearl necklace but no royal diadem. Her Majesty's name "ELIZABETH II" curls along the top rim. At the bottom rim, the denomination "5 DOLLARS" and the year-date "2017" are inscribed. The coin's radial line finish, which appears on both the obverse and reverse, is not only eye-pleasing but also serves as a bulwark against counterfeiting. The edge is reeded.
The Silver Maple Leaf is a great investment coin for those who are just starting out in precious metals as well as those who already boast an impressive silver stack. This is especially true when you buy 500 coins (500 troy ounces) at once, adding a significant total to your silver holdings.
