Canadian Maple Leaf 1 ounce (Royal Canadian Mint)
The silver Canadian Maple Leaf 1 ounce, as well as the gold Canadian Maple Leaf, is very popular globally. This is due to three reasons. It is the official product of the Royal Canadian Mint and has been accredited by the Canadian Government. It is produced in a controlled environment where forgery is virtually impossible. And finally, it is produced from silver of exceptionally great fineness — 999.9/1000.
The Royal Canadian Mint was established in 1901. For the first 30 years, the mint operated under the name ‘Ottawa Mint’. The mint produces a wide selection of products made of gold of high purity, silver, palladium, and platinum. Along with the famous Maple Leaf coins, the Royal Canadian Mint produces investment gold bars, as well as gold and silver tokens for use in gold industry and manufacturing.
