This coin's design is based on the iconic Maple Leaf bullion coins the Mint has produced since it introduced its first gold bullion coin in 1979.

The Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin was introduced in 1988. It immediately set a new standard as the world's first 99.99% pure silver bullion coin. It bears the same reverse design as the Gold Maple Leaf, a highly recognizable image created by Master Engraver Walter Ott. Several elements make this collectible unique. First, it celebrates the global renown of our Maple Leaf bullion coins, which continually set the standard for purity and security. Second, unlike any of our other numismatic or bullion coins, this is the first time a pure silver coin was produced at our facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It carries a 'W' mint mark on its reverse to highlight that the coin was struck at our Winnipeg location. And finally, it features a unique burnished finish, giving it a "matte" look, making this coin stand out from our other numismatic coins.

The reverse design for this coin reproduces Master Engraver Walter Ott's maple leaf from the Mint's original 1979 bullion coin. This design remains in use on all Royal Canadian Mint bullion coins to this day. The reverse also features a 'W' mint mark to the left of the leaf stem, indicating that this numismatic coin was struck at our Winnipeg facility, rather than in Ottawa, where numismatic coins are typically struck. The reverse and obverse of this coin feature a unique "burnished" finish. The obverse includes the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
