The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is part of a broad series of coins for sale that include a gold, platinum, and palladium version. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf was the second gold bullion coin ever introduced into the global market, just behind the South African Krugerrand coin. The Silver Maple Leaf debuted in 1988, nearly a decade after the Gold Maple Leaf.
Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins feature the same image on the obverse and reverse each year, without changes. The only alterations the coins have ever seen were the introduction of security measures to protect against counterfeiting. The radial lines dominate the background of both sides, while a laser-etched maple leaf privy mark offers enhanced protection. In addition, the Royal Canadian Mint debuts its new MINTSHIELD Technology on 2018-dated Canadian Silver Maple Leafs. The invisible application works to prevent the occurrence of “white spots” on silver bullion coins without altering the composition or purity of the coins.
On the obverse of all 2018 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins youll find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a right-profile portrait created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, and it marks the fourth-generation portrait of the Queen found on Canadian coins since her 1952 ascension to the throne.
The reverse of Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins includes the aforementioned security features, as well as the sugar maple leaf design in the center. This maple leaf is the official emblem of Canada and even appears on the nations flag.
