Purchasing Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins

There are few Silver coins more popular than the Silver Maple Leaf from the Royal Canadian Mint. Struck annually, the Silver Maple is produced on a grand scale by the Royal Canadian Mint. Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins are among the most secure bullion coins in the world. First minted in 1988 and struck every year since, Maple Leaf coins hold 1 oz of fine Silver. Minted in .9999 fine Silver, they are among the finest of all Silver dollar-size coins. The mintage of this popular Canadian series has varied since the Maple Leaf was introduced - beginning with 1,155,931 in 1988 and expanding to as much as 29,245,000 in 2014.

Design of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf

The reverse of all Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins features the image of the iconic maple leaf. This has been the same image on these fine Silver coins since its introduction in 1988. It has been altered to add security measures, notably radial lines and a microscopic maple leaf privy featured in the Bullion DNA program. There have been several special edition Silver Maples produced over the years.

MINTSHIELD™ Technology & Bullion DNA Program

Every Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin dated 2018 and later now features MINTSHIELD™ Surface Protection, the world’s only proven technique for significantly reducing the appearance of white spots or "milk spots" on Silver bullion coins.

The Bullion DNA program offers the highest security on the market for any bullion coin. Each bullion coin features a textured maple leaf security privy mark, micro-engraved with laser technology, and is visible only under magnification. Etched within the maple leaf security mark are the two digits indicating the coin’s production year. Each micro-engraving is encoded, scanned, and recorded at the Mint for future authentication, giving each coin their unique Bullion DNA.

This process provides each Maple Leaf coin with the highest security for any coin in the marketplace. The Royal Canadian Mint’s unique Bullion DNA program authenticates Silver Maple Leaf coins dated 2015 and later. APMEX is a recognized Bullion DNA dealer for trusted Royal Canadian Mint products.
