Over the last 30years, the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin has had  noticeable changes to its obverse side.

The most noticeable change to the Canadian silver bullion coin has happened to the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

The first photo, to the left, is the first effigy design of Queen Elizabeth II used by the Royal Canadian Mint.

The effigy was created by Arnold Machin and was inscribed on the silver bullion coin from 1988 to 1989.

The second effigy of Queen Elizabeth II was designd by Dora de Pedery-Hunt.

The Royal Canadian Mint used the second effigy design, on the obverse side of the Silver Maple Leaf, from 1990 to 2003. 

The current effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, below, was created by Susanna Blunt and was first inscribed on the silver bullion coin in 2004.

The Queen's effigy in the next two examples has not changed, the change is found on the field of the bullion coins obverse side.

The field is the flat area of a coin’s surface that doesn’t have any design or inscription.

Between 2003 thru 2013, the field of the 1 oz. Silver Maple Leaf Bullion Coin was flat, like most other coins.






Radial Lines

However, for security reasons, in 2014, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) added radial lines to make it harder for counterfeiter's to reproduce the coins, these lines are inscribed on the obverse and reverse sides of the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin.

MINT SHIELD

The Royal Canadian Mint's (RCM) MINTSHIELD™ is the world’s first and only proven solution for reducing white spots a.k.a. 'milk spots' on silver bullion coins.

MINT SHIELD is a proprietary advancement developed by the RCM and it is applied to every Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin dated 2018 or later.



Note:

It should be noted that the three effigies weren't only used on the obverse side of the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin, but the three effigies were also used on the obverse side on all Canadian circulated, commemorative and bullion coins during the years noted under each image.

The coins' purity, of "9999" is inscribed on both sides of the 30th Anniversary Silver Maple Leaf.










Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf
Security Mark

In 2014, the RCM started to add a Security Mark to the the reverse side of the 1oz. Canadian Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin.

The RCM's security mark is a Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf design produced by the Mint’s use of laser technology.

Inside of the laser engraved maple leaf is the numeral “18” indicating the coin’s year of issue, which is more easily visible under magnification.

Note: The 2013 25th Anniversary Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin does not have this mark.
