- The Best - Coins and ServiceLouison 12/11/13
OverallProvident NEVER disappoints me with their prices or service!
This Maple Leaf was so beautiful, that I ordered all of the others that are still available. Absolutely incredible quality from Canada. The reverse proof, that pictures cannot do justice is the finest I have ever seen. I cannot recommend this offering more!
- AMAZING!!!Ryan on 8/29/13

OverallI just received my order of them today. First of all one of the best looking coins out there very Proof like! Overall detail is amazing!
I had to buy since silver took a dip! I would have given 5 stars but shipping took forever, I placed my order on 04/18 and didn't get here until today 05/06.
- Gorgeous!SilverMadnesson 5/4/13
OverallI was hesitant to buy this at first because the regular maples have milk spots. Seeing how this was so nice, I couldn't pass up on these. Ordered 5 of them and all arrived quick. The design are way better compared to regular maples.

- Sweet Maple:)Stevenon 4/30/13
OverallWow! I am very impressed with this Maple Leaf and Provident. For an item that was suppose to be delayed, it only took ten days to arrive from the time of ordering. I don't consider that much of a delay and was very pleased with all my purchases. The 2013 Snake Privy Canadian Maple Leaf is a beautiful coin that stands out among others, as does Provident Metals.
- A Work Of ArtPaulon 4/24/13
OverallYou pay more for these Proof Like "works of art" but they are worth it. Highly polished with matte finish contrast in perfect condition. Provident has always shipped my Canadian silver coins in plastic flip holders - very classy. Once again Provident is the BEST.
- WowM.S.on 4/19/13
OverallThis one is stunning! I have always loved the Maples, but now the rest pale in comparison with this one sitting next to them. A long wait for it, but it was worth it.
- Proof LikeGinoon 4/2/13
OverallGreat looking coin. I ordered this, a regular Maple and some rounds. This was the gem. Nice frosted finish with highly polished accents. Nice solid round. But on the pricey side as is all Canadian coins....for whatever reason.
- Excellent Coins!XLNT!on 3/22/13
OverallI have been ordering from Provident for maybe six months now, always happy with my orders. These Maple Leaf coins are astounding! Works of Art, I order a couple 2 or 3 of these each month. Birthday and Christmas presents covered this year. Thank you Provident.
- Great Buy!Coffee Addicton 3/11/13
OverallGreat addition to my collection. The privy is in excellent condition. Great service by one of the best in the industry, Provident. Thanks!
- Stunning CoinMARKon 3/10/13
OverallAbsolutely BEAUTIFUL MAPLE ! By far the favorite coin in my collection. I think the ML and the ASE are very close in beauty, with perhaps a slight edge in art to the ASE, tho I prefer the dimensions and purity of the ML, but this coin , at least to me, is a very special one indeed.WOW factor is just incredible, First rate job, Royal Canadian Mint !

- Sweet coin!Jeffon 3/8/13
OverallThis coin is definitely cooler then a regular maple leaf...the matte background makes the coin really pop.
- a Cut Abovebought2muchon 3/5/13
OverallThe Snake Privy is much more detailed than the regular Canadian Silver Maple. I'm not sure why, but it is. A wonderful addition to my stash.
- silverfreedomHUGOon 2/26/13
OverallWonderfull coin, look much better than the regular Maple Leaf
thank provident, the coin was very clean uncirculated.
- Snake Privy!Jeremyon 2/25/13
OverallThis coin is probably one of my favorites. I have alot of coins from different mints throughout the world.....this one is top notch! If you collect Maples, you've got to add this one as well!
- the best roundJimon 2/7/13
OverallAs usual it arrived promptly and well packed, and the round is amazing. This is my favorite so far,
- Beautiful!Ericon 2/5/13
OverallWhen you see these coins, you will understand why these are different. It's not just the privy snake symbol, but the whole coin is several levels above your average Maple. The shine, matte finish, and detail sets it apart.
It is not a matter of IF these will go up in price, they WILL go up in price...invest in these before they're gone!
- Mouth Watering Maplephillipon 1/16/13
OverallNothing but the best taste of bullion from the legendary Canadian Crown Royal Mint
