A beautiful hologram highlights the well known maple leaf on this .9999 fine Silver coin.
The new background was precisely machined by the Royal Canadian Mint onto their master die and creates a unique light diffracting pattern which has not been seen on other bullion products. The second change, the maple leaf privy mark, is similar to that of the 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins. Each privy contains a small, micro-engraved "14" which is visible only under magnification. The "14" will change annually to correspond with the year of issue.
. Please note - the hologram of this coin was applied by an experienced third party company.
