After the resounding success of the Canadian Gold maple leaf coins in 1979 the Royal Canadian mint then started, the following year, to produce a one ounce 2006 Royal Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin.
Following the same format the Silver Maple Leaf coins are struck in fine silver with a purity of 99.99 percent. The idea being that people then have a convenient and easy way to buy and own silver bullion in the form of silver coins.
The coin is issued annually and the new 2006 Silver Maple Leaf coins keep up the tradition with a attractive five dollar face value coin designed to appeal to collectors (pictured)

The price is a very affordable 15 dollars plus shipping.
This coin will bring pleasure to any coin enthusiast as well as providing an excellent source of silver bullion that is easy to transport and sell if required.
Having some of the new 2006 Royal Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins will certainly enhance any collection
