The Royal Canadian Mints Maple Leaf Coins are some of the most recognizable in the world. To celebrate the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the mint made a special line of the Maple Leaf Silver Coins with small privy marks. Each privy mark celebrates one of the animals of the Zodiac. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Reverse Proof Canadian Maple Leaf Lunar Monkey Privy 1 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals in perfect PF70 condition.
The popularity of lunar-themed coins led the Royal Canadian Mint to create coins to celebrate the Chinese Lunar Calendar. While there are many different lunar-themed coins from the RCM, the Maple Leaf Silver Coins with Zodiac privy marks are some of the most popular.
All of the coins in this series have a reverse proof finish. This means that the design fields are deeply mirrored, while the background field is frosted and matte.
The obverse face of these coins features the image of Queen Elizabeth II. On these coins, she is shown in right-profile relief. Her effigy is joined by engravings of her name, the year of the coins issue, and the face value of the coins.
On the reverse side of the coin, you can see the familiar Sugar Maple Leaf design. Above the leaf, you can find the word Canada, and the purity is also located on this side of the coin. The bottom half of the coin contains the small lunar monkey privy mark.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908. It was created as a Crown corporation. The mint is responsible for producing all of the circulation coins for Canada and other countries around the world. The mint creates products in silver, gold, palladium, and platinum.
