The Canadian 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf coin was first minted in 1988 following the success of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf that launched in 1979. Issued annually, this bullion coin is made from .9999 fine Silver, making it one of the finest bullion coins in the world. Although the Royal Canadian Mint produces other Silver bullion coins, the Silver Maple Leaf is by the far the most popular among collectors and investors alike.

Before the birth of the Royal Canadian Mint, every coin that was in circulation in Canada had to be produced at the Royal Mint in London or at the private Heaton Mint in Birmingham, England. So, in 1890, the Royal Canadian Mint was proposed and 18 years later on January 2, 1908 Canadian Governor General Lord Earl Gray struck the first domestically produced coin in Ottawa. Since then, the Royal Canadian Mint has been known for its exceptional quality, sophistication and innovation.

The Silver Maple Leaf has undergone some changes in its design, but overall, the main elements of this iconic Silver coin have remained the same. The obverse of the coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II while the reverse displays a maple leaf, an image closely associated with Canadian pride and nationalism. In 2014, a micro-engraved, textured maple leaf featuring the year of issue and a radial-line background were added to ensure the authenticity of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. In addition to the added security, these features also add to the beauty of each individual coin, as each pattern of radial lines is unique and creates a specific light-diffracting pattern.

I purchased this 1989 coin because it depicts Queen Elizabeth II as a 39 year-old which was only done on Maples in '88 and '89. It is a beautiful coin and was shipped in excellent condition, as advertised. As usual, APMEX did a superb job.

In my humble opinion, this coin is a must have for your collection. 1989 represented the decade where President Reagan had just left office and left the relationship with the UK (and the Monarch) in great esteem. The Queen's reputation was at her Zenith. The profile of the queen on the coin is beautiful and representative of the style and impression the world had of the queen at the time.

All came tarnished which is to be expected given the year but a bit suprising when you are expecting a brilliant coin. A quick dip and they looked great, no scratches. I called just to ask if this was common and, upon confirming it was they offered to take them back right away if I wasn't satisified which was reassuring. Nice, simple coin with a great look. You won't make a fortune given the issuance, but good to add to a braod collection.

The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is just my favorite silver coin. The simple design is so well executed and finished. Photography never seems to do the Maple Leaf justice. Side by side, they hold their own with any silver coin out there for pure beauty of design and consistent perfection of strike and finish (the awesome proof-like finish). I particularly favor this 1989 as it remains available at a bargain price, and is the last year available with the "young" Queen Elizabeth II. I have collected additional newer years (for example 1990, and 2010) in order to own the designs depicting the middle-aged, and then senior-aged Queen . . . all well done. If you haven't handled one of these, take a look at one (IN HAND). You'll be impressed.
