First issued in 1988, the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin is highly valued by collectors and
investors worldwide for its outstanding combination of superior craftsmanship, purity and design.
The reverse of this 99.99% pure silver coin stands as a numismatic tribute to the Royal Canadian
Mint’s iconic Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin. Unchanged since its silver debut in 1988, the
single maple leaf design is engraved in outstanding detail to give it a life-like quality, and includes
such textural details as the deeply etched veins that run through each of the leaf’s lobes. There’s an
unmistakable shine to the reverse, thanks to the light-diffracting wave pattern that fills the
entirety of the field. Micro-engraved with laser technology, the recurring number “150” and the
maple leaf add a commemorative element that celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation,
while echoing the cutting-edge security features found on the bullion coin.
A testament to Canada’s spirit of innovation as the
nation celebrates 150 years of Confederation.
