Canadian Maple Leaf Silver Coin

Recently I developed an interest in collecting silver coins as well, not just for the numismatic value, also for its intrinsic silver value. The price of Silver has proved to be stable and gradually increasing throughout the years, and is still relatively cheap compared to gold. Therefore I feel that it is a good time to buy some before the prices go up. I have recently ordered a batch of 2010 Canadian Maple Leaf Silver Coins and would like to share it with everyone. The actual coin looks much nicer in photos as it is one of the shiniest silver coins I have owned. If anyone is interested in purchasing it as well, I still have a couple of spares I will let go near my cost.

The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is a silver bullion coin issued annually by the government of Canada. The coin has been minted by the Royal Canadian Mint (RMC) since 1988.

The face value of the 1 oz coin is 5 Canadian dollars, the highest among international silver bullion coins.. The purity of the coin is 99.99% silver, also the highest among other bullion issues which have a 99.90% standard.

The coin generally always features a maple leaf and generally consists of 1 troy ounce of silver.

The one universal element in all silver maple leaf coins is the phrase "Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur" along the bottom of the obverse of the coin.
