The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf was first introduced in 1988, making 2013 the 25th anniversary of the coin program. In addition to these BU coins, the Royal Canadian Mint struck two additional Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins. The High Relief Piedfort was produced with a mintage of 10,000 and featured a new maple leaf design.
Additionally, there were 9,999 25th Anniversary Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins struck for use in a 5-coin collector’s set. The set included a 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz coin. In both cases, the image on the obverse was the traditional design from Susanna Blunt. Arnold Nagy designed the special bullion coin in the 5-coin set, while Jean-Louis Sirois designed the Piedfort coin.
On the reverse face of each 2013 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is the image of the sugar maple leaf, along with engravings identifying the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin.
