The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin was the first .9999 pure silver bullion coin when it was introduced in 1988. To this day, few other annual-issue silver bullion coins have this level of purity and stands as one of the most popular silver coins available.
Unlike the Gold Maple Leaf Series, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf has offered the highest purity content since the moment the coins were first released. In 2014, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf was among the first bullion coin programs from the Royal Canadian Mint to feature new security measures in the design to combat counterfeiting.
These security features include radial lines that refract light in different directions on both the obverse and reverse fields of the coin. There is also a micro-engraved laser privy mark in the form of a maple leaf on the reverse. Inside of this privy mark, you will see the last two digits of the date mark as 20 in the case of these Silver Maple Leaf coins.
On the reverse of 2020 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins is the sugar maple leaf. The national symbol of the modern nation of Canada, individual cities and territories have used the sugar maple leaf as an emblem as far back as the 17th century. This sugar maple leaf design was first created in 1979 by Walter Ott for the debut of the gold version of the Canadian Maple Leaf.
The obverse side of 2020 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation portrait of Her Majesty and was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. This design is the first of the Queen to not feature a crown on the monarchs head and is also the first design to do so since early in the reign of her father, King George VI.
