The 2017 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf features a new form of security though the Royal Canadian Mint’s Bullion DNA program. 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 their unique Bullion DNA.
Bullion DNA authenticates coins by scanning them with a Mint’s proprietary Bullion DNA reader verifying that the micro-engraved security mark is a match to the Royal Canadian Mint’s secure database. This process provides each Silver Maple Leaf coin with the highest security for any coin in the market place. The Royal Canadian Mint’s unique Bullion DNA program authenticates Silver Maple Leaf coins dated 2015 and later. APMEX is a recognized Bullion DNA dealer for trusted RCM products.
History of the Silver Maple LeafThe Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin was first minted in 1988 in response to the smashing success of the Gold Maple Leaf that had been introduced in 1979. Each year, this bullion coin is issued in .9999 fine Silver, marking it as one of the finest bullion coins in the world. Although the Royal Canadian Mint makes several very attractive, high-quality Silver bullion coins, the iconic Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is easily among the most popular coins of its kind to both collectors and investors.
While the Silver Maple Leaf has experienced some design revisions since 1988, the main elements of this iconic Silver coin are unchanged. The obverse of the Silver Maple Leaf bears a profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse features a single large maple leaf, the enduring symbol of Canadian pride and identity. Security enhancements have also been added to Canadian Maple Leaf Coins, to guarantee their authenticity on the open market. Each iteration may include its own privy mark or design element to set it apart and ensure its validity.
