Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins 2011 - just released
Each year the Royal Canadian Mint strikes one of the world's most famous Silver Coins, the Silver Maple Leaf. These coins have been highly popular in recent years as the price of Silver has quintupled since 2001.
The pure Silver content, the magnificent quality of minting, and a guaranteed $5.00 face value make these a worldwide favorite.
Canadian Maple Leafs are official legal tender.
Each coin is minted in the highest quality 99.99% fine Silver.
By law, each one contains precisely 1 troy ounce of pure Silver.
These are large coins almost 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
The Silver Maple Leafs have a distinctive look from every other Gem Brilliant Uncirculated coin. Each Silver Maple Leaf is painstakingly minted using highly polished coin blanks. The finely detailed dies then create the raised foreground which exhibit mirrored "Proof-Like" features. The background is a satin finish beloved by collectors.
As soon as they were minted, each 2011 Silver Maple Leaf coin was placed in a clear protective holder to safeguard the delicate Silver surfaces from the harmful effects of handling and air pollution.
For the Silver investor and for the Silver Dollar collector, we highly recommend 2011 Silver Maple Leafs. The Silver Maple Leaf coins are magnificently designed and minutely detailed by the craftsmen at the Royal Canadian Mint. Best of all, the Canadian Silver Maple Leafs are among the purest Silver and most unusually designed coins in the world.
