Part of Canadian Privy Mark Maple Leaf
Privy marked Silver Maples occupy a unique space in the bullion industry. Each round consists of one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver like its non-privy marked counterparts. The privy mark, however, is an additional design element, and in combination with the greatly reduced mintage numbers, Privy Mark Silver Maples carry a much higher numismatic value than other Silver Maples.
The reverse of each 1 oz Silver Maple features the iconic Maple Leaf, a national symbol of Canada. Just to the left of the leaf’s stem is a privy mark of a carefully crafted monkey, which honors the Chinese Zodiac’s 2016 animal. “CANADA,” “9999” and “FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR” are inscribed.
Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse along with inscriptions of “ELIZABETH II,” 5 DOLLARS” and “2016.”
