Spotted/Tarnished/Circulated Silver Maple Leaf, .9999 Pure, 1 Troy Ounce

The Canadian 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf coin was first minted in 1988 following the success of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf that launched in 1979. Issued annually, this silver bullion coin is made from .9999 fine silver, making it one of the finest bullion coins in the world.

Although the Royal Canadian Mint produces other silver bullion coins, the Silver Maple Leaf is by far the most popular among collectors and investors alike.

Coin Highlights:

  • Metal Content: Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine silver (99.99% pure).

  • Security Features: Micro-engraved maple leaf and radial lines for enhanced security and visual appeal.

  • Legal Tender: Legal tender currency coin with a face value backed by the Canadian government.

  • Thickness: 3.29 mm

  • Diameter: 38 mm

  • Year: Random (1988+)

  • Condition: Cull/Spotted/Tarnished/Circulated

  • Denomination: $5 CAD face value

  • Mint: Royal Canadian Mint

These spotted or tarnished Silver Maple Leafs are perfect for investors who prioritize metal content and value over aesthetic condition.

The 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf, first minted in 1988, has become a favorite among silver enthusiasts and collectors worldwide.

By opting for these circulated coins, buyers can add high-purity silver to their portfolios at a more affordable rate.

Historical Background

Before the birth of the Royal Canadian Mint, every coin circulated in Canada had to be produced at the Royal Mint in London or the private Heaton Mint in Birmingham, England. To address this dependency, the Royal Canadian Mint was proposed in 1890.

Eighteen years later, on January 2, 1908, Canadian Governor General Lord Earl Grey struck the first domestically produced coin in Ottawa. Since then, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) has been known for its exceptional quality, sophistication, and innovation.

Design and Security Features

The Silver Maple Leaf has undergone some changes in its design, but the main elements of this iconic silver coin have remained the same. The obverse of the coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse displays a maple leaf, an image closely associated with Canadian pride and nationalism.

In 2014, a micro-engraved, textured maple leaf featuring the year of issue and a radial-line background were added to ensure the authenticity of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf.

In addition to enhancing security, these features also add to the beauty of each coin, as the unique radial lines create specific light-diffracting patterns.

  • Obverse: Features a right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year of issue and face value of $5 CAD.

  • Reverse: Showcases the iconic Maple Leaf design, with intricate details, weight, and purity.

    Without much effort.
    Received my order of Spotted/Tarnished/Circulated Silver Maple Leaf coins in a very secure package with ample shock protection. Upon inspection I found that the coins were in very good condition except for what I consider "water spots" that occurred during cleaning of production oils. I simply placed the entire order in a tumbler with corn cob medium for a period of three days. Coins came out brilliantly clean and polished. Well worth the reduced cost of the purchase.

    Just can't beat the bargain bin
    I don't have a lot to spend or buy very often. But whenever I can afford, I buy all my all my silver from MMX bargain bin. I've been trying to get at least 30 oz a year, doesn't sound like much but every thing I've gotten from MMX bargain bin is just as clean and shiny as any new coin or round I've seen. Will only buy from MMX

    Silver Maple leafs
    The coins I received are in excellent condition. I only found some very tiny scratches on the edge of 2 coins. Couldn't find any spots or tarnish anywhere. Thank you and I will be back to purchase more soon.
