The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is the flagship silver coin of the Royal Canadian Mint, containing 1 troy ounce of pure silver by actual silver weight (ASW). It is also known for the exceptional quality of its extra-pure .9999 fine silver. You can purchase the 2018 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Roll of 25 coins as a convenient way to stack up these popular bullion coins in bulk! Each plastic tube contains 25 neatly stacked one-ounce Silver Maple Leaf coins and comes directly from the mint.
The reverse uses a design by mint artist Walter Ott depicting the Canadian national symbol, a maple leaf, in almost surreal detail. The issuing nation "CANADA" curls along the top rim while inscriptions at the bottom rim, "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR," indicate the coin's weight and composition. "9999" one either side of the leaf represent the coin's silver purity. A smaller maple leaf, which is a special security mark, is found to the bottom-right of the leaf. The edge uses a reeded design.
The obverse design of Queen Elizabeth II was created by Susanna Blunt. Her Majesty is depicted facing right, wearing a pearl necklace but no royal tiara. "ELIZABETH II" appears along the top rim while the denomination "5 DOLLARS" and the year of issue "2018" are both inscribed at the bottom rim. An attractive radial line finish fills the field of the coin, which not only makes the Silver Maple Leaf much harder to counterfeit, but also has great eye-appeal. This effect is present on the reverse of the coin, as well.
The 2018 Canadian 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf Roll of 25 has a collective silver weight of 25 troy ounces, making it a convenient way to buy silver more than a few ounces at a time.
