For 25 years, the iconic Silver Maple Leaf has been a highly sought-after Royal Canadian Mint bullion investment coin. This pure silver numismatic coin with selective gold plating celebrates the Silver Maple Leaf's beauty and success since its introduction in 1988.
Designed by Canadian artist Jean-Louis Sirois, this coin's reverse "Shadowleaf" image features an original and highly creative take on the perennial Canadian maple leaf design present on all Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins. The focal point is a slightly off-centre, detailed and embossed maple leaf. This highly polished element is set within a gold-plated, recessed semi-circle that merges, on the image's left side, with a large shadow outline of the same maple leaf.
