Limited to 3,000 worldwide, collectors are guaranteed all five coins by enrolling in the Mint’s five-coin subscription service. Those wanting just the silver coins can join the three-coin subscription option which has a higher limit of 8,500.

"The maple leaf is a powerful national symbol—one with a distinct and elegant shape that captures much of Canada’s nature—winters that have influenced the way the world views this land and its people; breathtaking autumn colors that have captured the hearts of artists for centuries—but most of all, it symbolizes a land of opportunity to build a new life and enjoy the prosperity of free enterprise," describes the Royal Canadian Mint website.

All three silver maple leaves coins offer the same basic specifications and design but with different enhancements for added detail. The first silver coin shows a sprig of leaves from the sugar maple. The second silver coin has leaves in orange and red design reminiscent of the autumn season.
