The 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 Oz Silver Maple Leaf has the highest silver purity of any standard-release silver bullion coin. The Silver Maple Leaf is legal tender in Canada and carries a face value of 5 Canadian Dollars, though 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 the 1 Ounce Silver Maple Leaf
The 2014 Silver Maple Leaf is the first issue in this series to see a significant design change from earlier versions. Although the design 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.
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.
Investing in 1 Ounce Silver Maple Leafs
People wishing to invest in silver often prefer the Uncirculated Silver Maple Leaf because of its higher silver purity. The Silver Maple Leaf has its silver content, purity, and authenticity fully guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint. 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. These special issues have extra numismatic value and are intended mainly for coin collectors. However, any version of the 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf is quite valuable and collectible and can make a great gift idea.
