Since its introduction in 1988, the iconic Silver Maple Leaf (SML) has been a highly sought -after Royal Canadian Mint bullion investment coin. The SML is minted with one troy ounce (31.11 grams) of 9999 fine silver, and has a face value of $5.
In 2013, the Mint introduced a new and unique security feature to confirm the authenticity of its GML coins. Derived from the same award -winning security technology applied to Canada’s $1 and $2 circulation coins, the SML security feature consists of a textured maple leaf, micro-engraved with laser technology on a small area of the reverse side of the coin. In the centre of this mark, visible under magnification, the coin’s year of issue is denoted.
- Three unique features for cutting-edge security, including precise radial lines, a micro-engraved leaf and Bullion DNA anti-counterfeiting technology, exclusive to the Royal Canadian Mint.
- An attractive acquisition for both first-time precious metal buyers and long-term investors.
- Face value of $5 (CAD), the highest face value on the market for any comparable silver bullion coin.
