Like most of the Royal Canadian Mint’s coins, the obverse of the Silver Maple features a profile view of Queen Elizabeth II. You’ll also find inscriptions of “ELIZABETH II,” “5 DOLLARS,” and “2017.”
The focal point of the reverse is Canada’s signature maple leaf, sculpted with intricate detail. Next to the leaf’s stem, you’ll notice a small maple leaf-shaped privy mark laser engraved with the coin’s year of issue. The RCM added the privy mark to the annually released coin in 2014 to help prevent counterfeiting. Inscriptions include “CANADA,” “FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR,” and “9999.”
Recognized as the world’s first pure silver bullion coin, the Canadian Silver Maple has been released annually by the Royal Canadian Mint since 1988. Additionally, the mint produces all of Canada’s circulation coins, precious metal bullion coins, and various medallions. One notable feature on RCM coins, including the Silver Maple, is the micro-inscribed radial lines on the field of both sides. These lines create a unique light diffracting pattern when held to the light, adding another measure of security. This falls under the mint’s proprietary bullion DNA technology.
