The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is a silver bullion coin that has been issued annually by the Government of Canada since 1988. It is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. Vault offers the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coin in random years of issue.
The Silver Maple Leaf is legal tender with a face value of 5 Canadian dollars. The market value of the metal varies, depending on the spot price of silver. However, the legal tender value of 5 Canadian dollars is distinguishing and provides some assurance to investors because its value can never be less than what has been stamped upon it.
The 99.99% silver content makes the coin among the finest official bullion coins worldwide. The standard version has a weight of 1 troy ounce (31.10 grams). One of the reasons the coin is so popular is because it has aimed beyond industry standard, with a purity of "Four Nines" (.9999) fine silver. The standard in silver bullion is .999 fine.
The Silver Maple Leaf's obverse and reverse display, respectively, the profile of Elizabeth II and the Canadian Maple Leaf. In 2014, new security features were introduced: radial lines and a micro-engraved laser mark.
