The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf was introduced for the first time in 1988 by the RCM. It followed in the footsteps of its gold counterpart, released in 1979, and quickly became one of the most popular bullion coins in the world. Every year, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is struck in .9999 pure silver and features the same reverse design.
On the reverse face of each coin is the sugar maple leaf, a symbol of the nation found on countless government agencies and even the national flag. It is accompanied by engravings that denote the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin.
The obverse bears Susanna Blunts right-profile depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. On Canadian Silver Maple Leafs, Her Majestys image is accompanied by inscriptions that read Elizabeth II, 5 Dollars 2016.
The Royal Canadian Mint was originally founded in Ottawa in 1908. Struggling to produce all of its currency domestically, the mint expanded in the 1980s to include a modern facility in Winnipeg.
