The 2016 Canada Silver 1 oz Maple Leaf BU is a beautiful coin with the national symbol of Canada, the Maple Leaf, on its reverse and the latest portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The Silver coin also has several security features, some of which you might not even realize are meant to avoid counterfeiting.

Radial Design

Radiating lines provide the backgrounds for both the obverse and reverse of this 1 oz. Silver bullion coin. At first glance, they may appear to be nothing more than a decoration. However, look at them closely to see their minute accuracy and sharpness. Hold them up to see how they diffract the light. Counterfeit coins are not at all likely to be this well-made and precise.

Privy Mark

A special privy mark is micro-engraved on the coin. Inside a maple leaf outline, the two-digit year of the coin?s minting appears under magnification. Before buying, you need to know that privy mark is there and contains those numbers.

Bullion DNA

You won't notice the bullion DNA when you look at the 1 oz. Silver Maple Leaf BU. The topography of the coin?s surface has been scanned by the Canadian Mint and entered into their database. While this is not evident when you look at the coin, you can verify the coin by having it rescanned and the results compared with the database. If they match, you know the coin is authentic.
