In 1979, the Canadian Royal Mint decided to introduce a special edition Canadian Golden Maple Leaf coin that was and still is considered to be one of the finest coins made of pure gold.

After the success of the tiny 1 ounce coin, the Canadian Mint decided to mint a Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin in 2006. It was based on the 1 ounce coin and weighed 1 ounce and was of the same quality with only one difference — the metal used.

While the 1979 coin was made of pure gold, this one was composed of the purest silver available on the market. The idea was to make it easier for people to buy and keep gold. This is why it is not only popular among collectors but among investors as well.

Found in an uncirculated condition, it features the Maple leaf design made popular by the classic gold coin.

You will find a stunning portrait of Elizabeth II on the observer. This coin comes with an authenticity certificate and features 99.99% silver.

With a face value of $5, the coin became quite popular among collectors and was available for only $15 (including shipping).
