This $5 coin is certified to be .9999 fine Silver. 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 coins.
The focal point is a slightly off-center, 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. The reverse lists the weight and purity as well as a stylized “25 years/ans” celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Silver Maple Leaf coin. The obverse features the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin that was present on coins at the time of the Silver Maple Leaf’s inception in 1988.
Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint maroon clamshell case and protected by a black sleeve. Comes with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
