A world first fine silver coin (contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver) is uniquely shaped as a beautiful maple leaf, an impressive achievement in minting. This coin exemplifies the Royal Canadian Mint’s continuing spirit of innovation, along with the remarkable craftsmanship and artistry for which it is internationally renowned. This coin is the product of an exacting manufacturing process, which includes the use of specialized equipment to shape the dies and the laborious task of controlling the silver to ensure uniformity.

Strikingly beautiful with its distinctive shape, the maple leaf is known the world over as the national emblem of Canada and has been associated with the Canadian experience for over 300 years.

This coin is presented in a special wooden case complete with a viewing window in the lid.


The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears in the middle of the leaf.

Dei Gratia Regina (often abbreviated to D. G. Regina and seen as D·G·REGINA) is a Latin title meaning By the Grace of God, Queen.

Artist: Susanna Blunt.



The familiar shape of a maple leaf—specifically that of the silver maple (Acer saccharinum) species. Here, the coin’s unique shape accentuates the palmate leaf’s beautifully serrated edges. An intricate series of deep veins are rendered with finely detailed engraving, as they run through each of the leaf’s five pointed, tapering lobes.
