1.5-oz. Silver Canadian Maple Leaf
This "four-nines" (.9999) fine, legal-tender pure silver bullion coin from the Royal Canadian Mint contains 50% more pure silver than a standard Silver Canadian Maple Leaf — AND — is one of the most artistically-stunning coins ever produced by the Mint.
We call it, simply, the SuperLeaf™ . . . and they are available in quantity from Monex.
The SuperLeaf™ combines a number of design features previously introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint on other world-class bullion coins produced in years past. Most striking of these is the radial line finish first used on the 2014 standard Silver Maple Leaf. Precise radial lines that emanate from the center of the coin's obverse create a light-diffracting pattern that also serves as a unique state-of-the-art security feature. This radial line effect also carries over to the reverse of the coin and is used in the outer ring of the coin's "tails-side" design.
On the coin's obverse is the image of Queen Elizabeth II, developed by celebrated Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt and used on a number of the Mint's bullion coins in recent years. On the coin's reverse is the maple leaf image created by Royal Canadian Mint artist and senior engraver Stan Witten, the same image that was used on the Mint's "Million-Dollar Maple Leaf" – a 100 kg. "five-nines" pure gold bullion coin boasting a $1 million face value, first produced in 2007.
The SuperLeaf™ pure silver bullion coin has a face value of eight (8) Canadian dollars and has the same diameter of the standard Silver Maple Leaf (38 mm) but is thicker by half.

What is the difference between silver bullion and silver coins?
Silver coins are more aesthetically pleasing than silver bullion, containing amazing designs such as the bald eagle with a shield on a Silver American Eagle or the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the one point five ounce Silver Canadian Maple Leaf, or SuperleafTM coin. Though silver bullion does not contain such striking imagery, solid pure silver ingots are extremely beautiful to hold and an incredible precious metal to own. 100 ounces of pure silver bullion and 100 one-ounce coins have the same intrinsic value, but investment grade silver coins trade at a premium while having the advantages of their smaller format and improved authenticity features.

Coins, which are truly rare and historically significant, vary in price according to numismatic collector supply and demand and typically not relative to their intrinsic metal value.
