The maple leaf is an internationally accepted and recognized symbol of the nation of Canada. Originally used by early French settlers, the maple leaf is viewed as a representative of the nation because its own diversity helps celebrate the diversity of the population of the country itself.
On the reverse of the 2017 10 oz Canadian Silver Magnificent Maple Leaves coin you’ll find the original sugar maple leaf species represented in the collection, but also other leaves representing different species of maple leaves found in the nation of Canada. Each coin also includes the Royal Canadian Mint’s latest security features; precise radial lines and a micro-laser engraved maple leaf privy in the coin field.
The obverse of these beautiful silver coins features the 2003 depiction of Queen Elizabeth II created by Susanna Blunt. This image debuted on the Silver Maple Leaf in 2004, and is the third to appear after Arnold Machin’s depiction (1989-90) and Dora de Pedery-Hunt’s version (1990-2003).
Founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. The mint opened in 1908 in the federal capital city of Ottawa to process gold and other precious metals from the Yukon Territories, and provide sovereign control over coinage in Canada. The mint expanded in 1980 to include a Winnipeg facility.
