2018 1 oz. Canadian Silver Maple Leafs - Gem BU - Fresh from The Royal Canadian Mint with MINTSHIELD™ Surface Protection
The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is our neighbor to the north's version of our American Silver Eagle, and it is nearly as popular! With its classic Maple Leaf design, well known as a representation of Canada, along with its modern security features, you can't go wrong adding this Silver Bullion Coin to your collection!
In 2018, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) introduced MINTSHIELD™ technology to help delay the onset and occurrence of white spots, known as milk spots, on its silver bullion coins. This surface coating cannot be seen and does nothing to alter the purity or surface look of the coin. It is no surprise that RCM is the first to develop this kind of advancement as it already includes micro laser engraving and anti-counterfeiting technology in the production of its bullion coins.
The Canadian Maple Leaf is guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint. Orders of 25 or more may ship in original mint tubes. Single coins ship in 2x2 plastic flips, unless the Ship in a Direct Fit Air-Tite option is chosen from the Holder Options drop-down menu above.
