Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins

Silver Maple Leaf Coins are among the most popular silver coins coin enthusiasts seek.

There is a rich diversity of this coin and a good example of this is the Titanic Silver Maple Leaf coin.

The name Titanic in this case refers to the size of the coin not it’s fate which seems to be that it will continue to be very much in demand. The Titanic, in fact is a 5 dollar silver coin originally minted in 1988 as a one ounce pure 99.99 percent silver coin.

Although it is believed 26,000 of these coins were minted, at the time they were all sold to one dealer. As a consequence they have been in short supply ever since. I is possible, however to locate dealers who come across a small supply and the price

Each five dollar coin contains one full troy ounce of silver and features the queen's portrait on one side and the famous Maple Leaf design on the other. It also contains the special Titanic privy mark! The coin, when purchased, should be Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) and sealed in its original mint soft clear plastic.

This is a very nice coin and much prized by collectors. Anyone who can manage to get one or more of the 5 dollar Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins will be a happy chappie indeed!
