The Royal Canadian Mint’s Million Dollar Maple Leaf coin was a stunning 100 Kilogram Gold Coin that featured .99999 pure gold content and a $1 (CAD) face value. Only 5 of these coins were actually struck, and their beautiful Maple Leaf design captured the nation’s iconic symbol in an entirely new manner.
This iconic image now appears on the Canadian Silver SuperLeaf coins, which includes the Royal Canadian Mint’s newest security features. Both faces of the coin include radial lines to deter counterfeiters and a micro-laser engraved maple leaf privy mark that displays the year of issue 17 under magnification.
Each 2017 1.5 oz Canadian Silver SuperLeaf Coin in this listing is in BU condition. This means the coin exhibits no signs of wear and tear, however, you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process.
The obverse side of each 2017 1.5 oz Silver SuperLeaf includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has been on the obverse of all Canadian coinage since 1952, when she ascended to the throne of the United Kingdom. Canadian artist Susanna Blunt was the creator of this particular depiction in 2003.
The reverse of each 2017 1.5 oz Silver SuperLeaf includes the Sugar Maple Leaf design, originally created for the Million Dollar Maple Leaf coins. Instead of the traditional view of just one Maple Leaf, this includes a cluster of three leaves intertwined at their stems.
Originally founded in Ottawa in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. The mint operated in that one facility alone until the 1980’s, when a second facility opened in Winnipeg to boost production capacity.
