Now available from the Royal Canadian Mint is its 2014 Silver Maple Leaf with an ANA Privy Mark.
Limited to 7,500 and struck in 99.99% pure silver, the one-ounce coin is issued to celebrate the Royal Canadian Mint’s attendance at the ongoing 2014 Chicago American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money.
Silver Maple Leaf coins are an iconic staple of the Royal Canadian Mint’s portfolio and first appeared in 1988. Since then, they have come to be a favorite of collectors and investors from around the world.
The addition of the ANA privy mark offers a subtle design enhancement to the classic design. In addition, each coin is struck to "rare reverse proof finish" which features brilliant raised elements on a frosted background.
Inscriptions around the leaf read: CANADA, FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR and 9999. The ANA privy mark appears below the leaf with ANA inscribed on the mark and Chicago below.
Susanna Blunt’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse of the coin. Found around the effigy are ELIZABETH II, 2014 and the legal tender face value of 5 DOLLARS.
