The Royal Canadian Mint began minting of the silver Maple Leaf in 1988, nine years after first issuing the coin in gold. The silver "Maple" contains 1 troy oz of .9999 fine silver and carries a face value of $5 Canadian. The RCM added security features to the coin in 2014, including radial lines and a micro-engraved maple leaf mint mark.
Since its introduction to the market, sales of the coin have consistently grown. The number of coins produced has grown from 1.15 million in 1988 to 34.3 million in 2015. Today it is second only to the American Eagle silver bullion coin in popularity.
Like most bullion products, the 2008 financial crisis created a huge spike in demand. Investors awoke to the fragility of our banking systems and the counter-party risks associated with paper assets. Many sought physical precious metals as a hedge against the devaluing dollar and traditional securities and turned to Maple Leaf
Combined with Money Metals Exchange's low premiums, Canadian coins are a wonderful value and a way to add international legal-tender silver to a portfolio.
Act now to join the increasing number of investors who are diversifying away from tenuous and potentially risky paper assets and into physical silver bullion. The Maple Leaf is a stunning sovereign coin guaranteed for its weight and purity by the Canadian government and it is a beautiful piece of Canadian history! And you can get them for considerably lower premium than the silver American Eagle.
The obverse of the Silver Maple Leaf contains the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. There are three different versions, depicting the queen at different stages as she has moved through her monarchy - progressing from youth to old age. The year of issue and the face value of five dollars are also displayed on this front side.
The national emblem, the sugar maple leaf, adorns the Canadian coin's reverse. The design is extremely detailed throughout, including the texture and veins of the leaf itself (from the acer, or maple, Canada's National Tree). The numbers 9999 can be seen on its reverse side, along with the words ‘Argent Pur’ which means pure silver in French, Canada’s second language.
The coins are well struck. Quality is a hallmark of the Royal Canadian Mint.
One of the reasons the coin is so popular is its purity of "Four Nines" (.9999) fine silver. The standard in silver bullion is .999 fine. The Royal Canadian Mint has aimed beyond the industry standard.
The silver Maple Leaf is issued annually by the government of Canada and its Royal Canadian Mint. The coin has been produced in several special edition versions, graded “proof” versions, and commemoratives. Money Metals Exchange primarily sells the bullion original as this version is the most suitable for bullion investors because it offers the lowest premium.
The Maple's legal tender value of 5 Canadian dollars also distinguishes it from its peers. Five dollars face value is much higher than the silver American Eagle, for example with carries a $1 US denomination. Of course, the coin's melt value is far higher still and its actual value is based on its silver content. But it does provide some assurance to investors because its value can never be less than what has been stamped upon it.
In keeping with other Canadian coins in circulation since 1908, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf contains an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse. On the reverse side, Canada’s national symbol, the Maple Leaf can be seen, representing Canada’s identity (as it has since the early 18th century). The two images reflect Canada’s history and the coins have become a symbol of national pride.
Full mint tubes contain 25 coins, with a full mint box containing 20 tubes (500 coins). Maple "mint sealed" boxes are yellow in color.
Silver coins are increasingly popular amongst investors looking for a hedge against inflation and geopolitical uncertainty. Silver has always been considered honest money and sovereign coins such as the Maple Leaf offer trust and recognizability. Investors know that if they need to sell, these coins will command higher prices and there will be plenty of demand.
Silver will generally outperform gold during a bull market in precious metals.
Silver is also an extraordinarily useful metal, with growing industrial demand to help support its price. New applications include solar power, technology, and healthcare. When you consider that mine supplies are getting harder to find and more expensive to produce, silver makes a lot of sense based solely on supply and demand. Holding silver Maple Leafs could be profitable regardless how it performs as a monetary metal or safe haven asset.

As a beginner collector MMX has been exceptional for price, quality and the speed of processing my order and shipping. I will be ordering more silver coins. Everything I have received has been of the upmost quality and I will recommend them to all my friends.

I have been buying American Silver Eagles and American Gold Eagles since year 2000 from the U.S. Mint, Silvertowne, and several sound dealers. I have been very happy with their services, but I keep coming back to MME for several reasons, the customer service is outstanding, (Thanks Judy Witherrite), great pricing, speed of order processing, and excellent time of delivery! I love the Canadian Silver Maple Leafs and their .9999 silver content. I will continue to use MME as my primary dealer to acquire ongoing Gold and Silver. -Bruce Jones

I have had the pleasure of working with Money Metals Exchange for several months and I am very impressed with the service, price and most of all the quality of their products. I really like the Canadian Minted silver and gold coins due to their beauty and because of their 99.99% purity verses the 99.9% which is standard. I highly recommend these products and especially Money Metals Exchange
