The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf was introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988. Since then, the coin has remained available predominantly as a 1 oz silver BU coin. The Royal Canadian Mint does use the series, however, to celebrate milestones in national and international history with privy marks.

The Confederation of Canada involved the coming together of several British North American colonies, including Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. These colonies formed a federal union to create a single country with a federal structure, where certain powers were delegated to a central government (federal) while others were retained by individual provinces.
The British North America Act, now known as the Constitution Act, 1867, was the legislation passed by the British Parliament that established the Dominion of Canada. This act outlined the distribution of powers between the federal and provincial governments, created a framework for legislative authority, and provided the country with a constitutional foundation.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 2017 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in a 2003 depiction from Susanna Blunt. This bust of Her Majesty depicts the Queen without a crown on her head.
The sugar maple leaf is found on the reverse side of 2017 150th Anniversary Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leafs. This design was created in 1979 by Walter Ott for the debut of the Maple Leaf bullion series. It has been featured on all versions of the coin since. This side includes the Canada 150 maple leaf privy, as well as dual dates of 1867-2017.
These 2017 150th Anniversary Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are individually packaged in protective plastic flips. The Royal Canadian Mint limited the issue of Silver Maple Leafs with this privy mark to just 150,000 coins.
