The Canadian sugar maple leaf was first chosen as the official emblem for Canada in 1848. Since then, it has become the country’s most iconic symbol by popular acclaim. It’s hard to even think of Canada without the famous sugar maple leaf jumping to mind. The Royal Canadian Mint has used this symbol on their Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins for over five decades. The coin is highly popular each year on its release, and the silver version remains one of the most popular versions.
As always, Hero Bullion ships this coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and takes every precaution to avoid marks, scuffs, or other blemishes in transit. This particular coin is also blacked by the official government of Canada; the image of Queen Elizabeth dons the obverse side of the coin to cement this fact. Both sides of the coin, then, are covered with some of the most Canadian imagery that the country has to offer.

While it is certainly not the oldest mint in the world, the Canadian Royal Mint has established a major reputation among collectors. Part of this reputation is surely owed to the Royal Mint’s yearly release of the massively popular Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins, which have been in production since 1988. They were released in conjunction with the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf Coin, although the two materials trade off in popularity among collectors over time.
The 33rd consecutive release of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coin, the 2021 version is already gaining traction among collectors. Its intricate detail and design make it a beautiful addition to any collection, while the backing of the Canadian government protects it as a genuine and certifiable store of bullion value. The obverse side of the coin depicts a Canadian artist’s rendering of Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of England. Her likeness is centered on the face of the coin, and the value of the piece, 5 Canadian Dollars, and the year are featured below her bust.
On the reverse side, collectors are confronted with the iconic Canadian sugar maple leaf. Its intricate, textured design is appealing to the eye, and it is flanked on both sides by the .9999 purity of the silver it contains. The image of the sugar maple leaf is a bit older than the depiction of Queen Elizabeth; this rendering was drafted by artist Walter Ott in 1979.
Although the platinum model of the Canadian Maple Leaf Coin is relatively popular, there’s something to be said for the classic look and steady value of the silver edition. The 2021 1 Oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coin is highly collectable and maintains one of the most coveted coins in the industry today.

Very happy with Hero Bullion. Fast and the best price that I can find. Locally located to boot. I was looking at silver the other day and placed an order, not realizing that I had left an order in my cart from an earlier visit. I submitted payment and then realized, I had bought more than my budget.for that paycheck. I called the next day and John quickly refunded my money. Seems like a trustworthy outfit. They will get my buisness from now on. Free shipping for just a $100.00 order is another benefit.
