History Silver Maple Leaf
First issued in1988, the one ounce silver Maple Leaf was a great breakthrough for the reputable Royal Canadian Mint (RCM),due to its composition of 99.99% fine silver, paired with the RCM's globally famous manufacturing expertise. The coin's production was a challenge the RCM achieved successfully and subsequently set a new benchmark for highest purity silver coins available on the market today. The silver Maple Leaf adopted the Walter Ott design launched on the gold series and is the most recognized symbol of the largest country in North America. Some annual variations carried a small privy mark on the lower half of the coin, or featured colour enhancement with a different design from the regular one, or holographic enhancements.A number of the privy marked Maple Leafs were available only in Europe, released by coininvest.com. These were the 2009 London's Tower Bridge, the 2009 Brandenburg Gate, and the 2012 Leaning Tower of Pisa.
