The Canadian Maple 1oz Silver coins were first minted in 1988. Though there have been different Silver coin designs for commemorative editions of the Silver Maple Leaf, the Canadian maple stayed the main focus of the design. The Maple Leaf design is used as a distinctive privy mark on multiple series provided by the Royal Canadian Mint. As from 2014 the background of the coin had radial lines, precisely machined by the Royal Canadian Mint onto their master die. This creates a unique light diffracting pattern which has not been seen on other bullion coins.
Weight and purity guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
