Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins debuted from the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988. The coin was the first in the world to feature .9999 pure silver content and was released at the same time as the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf. The Silver Maple Leaf has remained one of the worlds most popular silver coins, selling millions of coins each year and falling behind only the American Silver Eagle in terms of overall demand.
The obverse side of 2021 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Gilded Coins includes a bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt and serves as the fourth-generation bust of the Queen on Canadian coins. This is, notably, the first portrait in her reign to lack a crown or tiara on the head of the Queen.
On the reverse field of 2021 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins is the sugar maple leaf. This design was created in 1979 by Walter Ott and remains unchanged on the surface of the coins. This same design can be found on the gold, platinum, and palladium variants of the coin. The gilded application includes a thin layer of 24-karat gold applied only to the sugar maple leaf on this face coin.
