At the end of every year, the Royal Canadian Mint issues coins that carry the date of the upcoming new year. Accordingly, the dies used to strike the coins from the prior year are destroyed and new dies are engraved, prepared and deployed to strike the coins for the new year.
The coin dies wear down over thousands of strike, causing the details of the engraved die that transfers to the newly struck coin to flatten, diminishing the quality of the finished coin below standards. At this point, the dies are replaced. For each minting press, new dies may be required multiple times each year. Once the new dies are installed, the strike quality (the detail transferred to the newly struck coin) returns to its maximum. There is no public notice that dies are changed, and each minting press changes dies at different times required by die wear.
Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all products delivered by the Royal Canadian Mint during the first 30 days of their issuance that go through the MintDirect® process as MintDirect® Premier. Each MintDirect® Premier tube is an unopened, sealed original Mint tube that is individually labeled, designating the coins as Premier. The MintDirect® Premier designation may not be recognized by external grading services. APMEX will only have a limited number of MintDirect® Premier products each year.
APMEX uses a special machine to ensure the products you receive are completely sealed once they are removed directly from the mint boxes. The mint tubes are placed on a conveyor leading into the machine and the sealing process seals both ends of each tube with tamper-evident packaging. If this tube has been opened in any way, you will know. After the process is completed, the tube is removed from the machine and then checked to ensure the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished tube of MintDirect® 2017 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins.
All MintDirect® Maple Leaf products delivered after the first 30 days of their issuance will carry the usual MintDirect® label designating that the original Royal Canadian Mint tube has not been opened since the coins were packaged at the mint and accordingly are unsearched and unsorted. MintDirect® is a process exclusive to APMEX that guarantees these 2017 Silver Maples have been sourced from mint sealed boxes.
The MintDirect® process provides you the assurance this product has not been opened, sorted or searched. Learn more about MintDirect® products from APMEX.
Note: The MintDirect® process does not guarantee protection from spotting or tarnishing that normally occurs in chemically active metals, such as Gold, Silver and Platinum.

The worth of Silver coins is, in part, based on the many uses of Silver.
A 2017 1 oz Silver Maple leaf gets much of its value from Silver’s many industrial uses, starting with its use in photography in 1727. The metal in Silver coins is reasonably abundant in the earth, but its extraordinary ability to conduct heat and electricity, and its antimicrobial properties create a rising demand, outstripping the supply nearly every year since 1990. A Canadian Maple Leaf is more pure than most jewelry, another major use of Silver, because Silver is soft and needs to be alloyed with another metal for daily use. A 1 oz Silver bullion coin represents humanity’s enduring appreciation of Silver, both for its beauty and its usefulness.
