The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin is one of the world’s best-selling silver bullion coins. Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, the coin’s debut in 1988 marked the first-ever launch of a .9999 pure silver bullion coin. Today, it remains available on an annual basis in 1 oz silver bullion, with countless collectible or otherwise commemorative versions. Right now, 2018 1 oz Colorized Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each 2018 1 oz Colorized Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin available for purchase in this product listing comes with a protective plastic capsule and is offered in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. These coins are from the standard BU issue of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf in 2018, but have added colorized lacquers on the reverse from an authorized third-party dealer.
While the Royal Canadian Mint is no stranger to the production of colorized proof silver coins, it rarely alters its Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin beyond the addition of a small privy mark of one type or another. Colorized lacquers such as those you find on these coins are often added to BU versions of the coin by an outside, authorized third-party dealer. The colorized lacquer does nothing to detract from the silver purity in the coin, it merely adds a different visual take on the design.
The obverse side of 2018 1 oz Colorized Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins includes a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile bust of the Queen was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt and is the fourth-generation design to feature on Canadian currency. While it is the fourth-generation design overall, it is just the second ever created by a Canadian artist.
On the reverse face of 2018 Colorized Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins is the iconic sugar maple leaf. The official emblem of the nation today, the sugar maple leaf has been a symbol of the Canadian people, the Canadian wilderness, and various settlements, cities, territories, and provinces throughout Canadian history dating back to the late 17th century. The added colorization on this face of the coin brings Walter Ott’s historic 1979 sugar maple leaf to life with real-world visuals.
