The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin was introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988, nearly a decade after its counterpart the Gold Maple Leaf. The coins always feature the same design on the reverse and obverse side, with the primary imagery lending its name to the coin series featuring the sugar maple leaf.
For the 150th anniversary of Canada’s federation and independence from British control, the Royal Canadian Mint has micro-laser engraved the number “150” in a recurring pattern on the background field of the coin’s obverse and reverse side. The maple leaf shape on the reverse forms a light-refracting patter that enhances the visual beauty and shine of these coins.
On the reverse of the 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Canada 150 Iconic Maple Leaf coin you’ll find that familiar sugar maple leaf design on all Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins. The tiny engravings of 150 are visible, appearing almost as recurring dots rather than actual text across the background field.
The obverse of all these coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty always appears on Canadian coinage, with this latest design coming from Susanna Blunt in 2003 and in use on most coin programs dating to the 2004 issue year.
Each 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Canada 150 Iconic Maple Leaf Coin featured here ships to you inside of one of the Royal Canadian Mint’s iconic maroon clamshell boxes for brilliant display, and arrives inside of a black beauty box.
