Coins aren’t always known for their innovation, but the Royal Canadian Mint is one of the finest in the world, so it’s no surprise it leads the way in coin security features with the 2014 Silver Maple Leaf.
The new design replaces the traditional bullion finish with complex radial lines and a micro-engraved laser mark, precisely machined within a micron to ensure consistent production and strikes. These new radial lines will create a “light-diffracting pattern” that will shine like no other coin on earth.
The small privy maple leaf is also a security feature, including the number 14 to signify the year of issue, micro-engraved into the surface. This security feature will only be visible under magnification.
The radial design on the reverse of each coin gives the impression that the leaf is slightly glowing. The reverse reads CANADA, FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR, with 9999 on either side. A small maple leaf privy mark is near the bottom right of the leaf.
The sharp radial lines continue on the obverse, with the queen’s portrait particularly smooth and shining in contrast with the background. The rim reads ELIZABETH II, 5 DOLLARS, 2014.
As always, the 2014 Silver Maple Leaf is comprised of one ounce of extremely pure .9999 silver.

" These are a good investment if you like coins for the silver content value and aren't picky about minor blemishes. I liked them initially however after a year, 5 of the 20 I bought have developed obvious 'milk spots'. I always heard this was common (due to the inadequate washing during production by the RCM) but its the first of my coins to show it. They looked perfect when I bought them and I never touched the coins... they go straight into airtites and are stored where there is little to no moisture. I have about 10 other varieties of silver coins and there are no spots visible on any of them except for these. For this reason I am not going to buy any more Canadian coins... Ill stick with ASE's and the other silver coins I like to collect that aren't as prone to this issue since they can be purchased for the same price or just slightly more. That said, they aren't a bad choice if you don't care what they look like and just want the silver content value as the premiums are frequently the lowest for government issued bullion coins."

" This is the only silver I buy now. (1) Government issued silver provides a level of trust. (2) Security features prevent counterfeiting. (3) No bloated numismatic premiums. (4) Higher silver content. (5) Always available. (6) Attractive design (The leaf is cool; I can do without the Queen's mug). This is as good as it gets."

" Not at all happy with these CML?s. Received one with spots, two others with many hairline scratches. Even the flips looked as if they had seen some hard times. Not even worth getting them graded, which was my intention for a birthday present. I guess it?s true, ?you get what you pay for?. but you also learn from your mistakes. Never again."

" Amazing coin, great detail in the coin, and provident metals as always follows through with there word delivering a great product at a great price. "

" I have had CMLs in the past that i believe were nicer. I viewed the video about radial lines, but sorry, I just don't like them. I contrast them with the C Pandas, also coins, which cost a bit more but are much more attractive. I look at the recent CML compared to other coins and I see no numismatic value, Sorry again but I think that the OPM rounds are a better value. "
