Historical Fact about the Coin:
The purest silver coin in regular mintage today is The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. Its purity of .9999 is guaranteed by The Royal Canadian Mint, whose reputation, worldwide is one of impeccable adherence to quality and purity. The national symbol of Canada, a single maple leaf adorns the reverse of this beautiful coin while the obverse bears a sculpture of Queen Elizabeth II. This coin is often the designated choice of discriminating collectors and investors not only because of its innate beauty but because of the extraordinary purity and quality necessary to meet the standards of The Royal Canadian Mint.
The Bullion DNA program offers the highest security on the market for any bullion coin. Each bullion coin features a textured maple leaf security privy mark, micro-engraved with laser technology and is visible only under magnification. Etched within the maple leaf security mark are the two digits indicating the coin’s production year. Each micro-engraving is encoded, scanned and recorded at the mint for future authentication giving each coin its unique Bullion DNA.
Every 2017 Canadian Maple Leaf can be authenticated with a DNA bullion reader. Silver coins from the Royal Canadian Mint also feature patent-pending technology for colored coins, holograms and Silver refining processes.
