The 2017 1 ounce Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is the newest installment in one of the most successful bullion coin series in the world. Manufactured from 99.99% pure silver instead of the industry-standard 99.9%, the 1 Ounce Silver Maple Leaf coin has the highest silver purity of any standard-release silver bullion coin. Although the 2016 1 Ounce Silver Maple Leaf is legal tender in Canada and carries a face value of 5 Canadian Dollars, the coins are mainly intended for buyers who look to invest in silver -- the value of the Silver Maple Leaf is directly tied to the current silver price.
Details of 2017 Silver Maple Leaf Coins
The 2017 Silver Maple Leaf is the latest issue in the Maple Leaf series that features significant design changes. Although the motif remains the same, the surface of both sides of the coin is not smooth, like previous mint years of Silver Maple Leafs. Instead, both sides have a groove pattern that radiates from the center out towards the edge of the coin. This is done as a security feature, making it much harder to counterfeit the new Silver Maple Leafs.
As stated, the design motif remains unaltered. The obverse shows an "Old Portrait" profile view of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the mint year and the face value. The reverse is still taken up by an image of the iconic Canadian Maple Leaf, as well as the weight and silver fineness. The same overall design is repeated on current-issue Gold Maple Leafs. This listing is only for the 2016 Silver Maple Leaf -- if you are looking for a Silver Maple Leaf with a different mint year, please view the non-date specific Canadian Silver Maple Leaf listing on CBMint.
Investing in Silver Maple Leaf Coins
People wishing to invest in silver often prefer these Uncirculated Silver Maple Leaf coins because of their higher silver purity.

With the current spot price of silver being relatively low, most investors expect the silver price to rise in the near future, so buying 1 Ounce Silver Maple Leafs online at CBMint is an inexpensive method to boost your silver bullion collection with top-quality coins.
The Royal Canadian Mint also issues many special versions of the Silver Maple Leaf, such as hologram versions and proof versions.
