The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf was introduced in 1988, almost a decade after the gold version of the coin. The Silver Maple Leaf shares the exact same designs on both the obverse and reverse as its gold counterpart, with only Queen Elizabeth II’s image on the obverse changing over time to reflect her age.
In this product listing, you will receive a Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin with a random year of issue depending upon availability at the time your order is fulfilled. Please keep in mind that these coins are cull specimens. Coins in this condition have any number of flaws ranging from holes, scratches and pitting to bends, dark toning, and retooling marks. There is no guarantee of the exact flaws on the coin you receive, nor is there a guarantee of the specific year of issue and design you’ll receive.
The image of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse will be one of three designs. The original, first-generation design is included only on coins with a 1988 or 1898 year of issue, and were designed by Arnold Machin. Dora de Pedery-Hunt created the image of Queen Elizabeth that features on the obverse of Canadian Silver Maple Leafs issued between 1990 and 2003. All coins produced between 2004 and the present feature Susanna Blunt’s third-generation image.
On the reverse of each coin is the iconic sugar maple leaf, along with engravings of the nation of issue, the coin’s purity, metal content, and weight. The obverse features the aforementioned images of Her Majesty.
