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.

The worth of Silver coins is, in part, based on the many uses of Silver.
A 2016 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 along with 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.
