Product Description

A privy mark of an explosion of fireworks, for the Millennium, adorns this hard-to-find, pure silver beauty!

Sold out at the Mint!What could be more beautiful than a single, perfect maple leaf? Hold it in your hand and gaze at this marvel of nature - so deceptively simple, yet so compelling. Along with the beaver and the Mountie, the maple leaf is considered one of the three iconic emblems of Canada - so definitive, in fact, that in 1965 the national flag was changed to the red and white maple leaf flag we know today.

SingleGreenMapleLeaf.jpg Now you can capture this very same beauty on one of the best-known and most widely collected precious metal coins in the world, the Silver Maple Leaf. First minted in 1988, Canada's own SML is the purest silver coin ever struck, and has the highest face value, a full five dollars, as well!

For type collectors, please note that the following portraits of Queen Elizabeth II have appeared on Silver Maple Leaf coins:

  1988-1989  2nd effigy by Arnold Machin
  1990-2003  3rd effigy by Dora de Pédery-Hunt
  2004-pres.  4th effigy by Susanna Blunt

The Specimen Finish
This coin features the uniquely-Canadian "specimen" finish, a three-fold combination of different finishes. The design (raised area or relief) includes both brilliant and mirrored surfaces, while the fields (background) are subtly striated, resulting in a contrasting, matte appearance. No other mint in the world employs the specimen finish.
