For decades, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf has stood as one of the world's premier silver bullion coins. This appeal has only grown in recent years, as worldwide sales from the Royal Canadian Mint continue to climb. For those with an eye for design beauty, the 2017 10 oz Canada $50 Magnificent Maple Leaf (.9999 Fine Silver BU) is a fantastic addition to the RCM's lineup of bullion products. Each coin contains 10 troy ounces of pure silver and is struck from extra-pure .9999 fine silver. In addition to a special-edition design and cutting-edge security features, each coin is given a legal tender face value of 50 Dollars.
The reverse design features an original new maple leaf design that is touted as the "Magnificent Maple Leaf." A pair of highly detailed maple leaves are shown, connected at the stem, with the year-date "2017" appearing above to the right. Within an eye-appealing serrated border, the issuing nation "CANADA" is inscribed at the top rim while the specifications appear in both English and French at the bottom rim, reading "9999 FINE SILVER 10 OZ ARGENT PUR 9999." A micro-engraved maple leaf privy mark to the bottom-left of the design is an actually an innovative security measure that allows the coin to be authenticated under magnification.
Susanna Blunt's effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II facing right graces the obverse design. The field behind Her Majesty uses a radial line finish that creates an attractive light-diffraction effect in addition to making the coin more difficult to counterfeit. Rim inscriptions include the denomination "50 DOLLARS," the Queen's name "ELIZABETH II," and Latin abbreviations for her regnal titles. The edge of the coin is reeded.
The use of .9999 fine (99.99% pure) silver in the 2017 10 oz Canadian $50 Magnificent Maple Leaf is one of the distinguishing achievements of the Royal Canadian Mint, which has earned a reputation for its refining prowess. The new design and security features also reflects the mint's attention to detail. You can add this ten-ounce legal tender silver coin to your collection today from Gainesville Coins!
