The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is part of the overall Canadian Maple Leaf Series from the Royal Canadian Mint. The coins were introduced in 1988, nine years after the introduction of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and the same year that the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf was introduced. Later, a Canadian Palladium Maple Leaf would also be introduced.
Since 1988, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf has remained as a 1 oz silver series, with other weights never introduced. However, there are other options for investors and collectors looking to buy the Silver Maple Leaf. These gilded Silver Maple Leafs are a perfect example of that.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2022 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf gilded coins. This effigy of the Queen is just the second to ever come from a Canadian artist, with Susanna Blunt creating this right-profile effigy in 2003. The design shows the Queen without a crown on her head, a first in the history of her reign.
In the reverse design of 2022 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf Coins, the Royal Canadian Mint offers its long-running sugar maple leaf design. This design shows the maple leaf at the center of the design with the gilded layer of 24-karat gold covering only the maple leaf on this side of the coin.
These 2022 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin comes with its own protective capsule and a thin layer of 24-karat gold. The application of this gold is not done to enhance the precious metal value of the coin, but rather, to enhance the visual contrast between the gold design fields and silver backgrounds.
