In 1998, the Royal Canadian Mint launched its Privy Marked Canadian Silver Maple series. Aimed at celebrating historically significant world events, Privy Marked Silver Maples are issued in extremely limited quantities, making them highly-valued collector’s items.
Composed of .9999 fine silver, Silver Maples are also eligible for contribution in your Self-Directed IRA — the perfect addition to any investment portfolio.
The reverse of each Privy Marked Canadian Silver Maple features the iconic five-point leaf designed by Dora de Pedery-Hunt. The privy is placed to the left of its stem. The obverse of each Maple Leaf Coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by famed Canadian artist Susanna Blunt. See individual product descriptions for more details.
The Monnaie Royale Canadienne (as it is known in French) is the Crown Corporation that issues all of Canada’s circulation coins. It is the world’s only mint to produce .9999 fine commemorative coins, while also striking bullion coins and bars, medallions, and even tokens. The Royal Canadian Mint also provides silver and gold assay services, while running a highly-advanced technical refinery.
Silver Maples were first released by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988. Backed and guaranteed by the government of Canada, Privy Marked Silver Maples have been issued with more than 30 different privy designs — so browse our convenient website to get started today!
