Maple Leaf 1 oz silver coin from the year 2019.
Minted by the Royal Canadian Mint, it is their best known coin because its design is the country's national symbol: the maple leaf. The silver Maple Leaf coin is issued every year and is usually sold out quickly.
On the cross we can see a large maple leaf whose design in bas-relief is detailed and meticulous, as all its nerves and branches can be differentiated. Despite its simplicity, it is quite beautiful and shiny. Without a doubt, the design of the background helps to focus the eye on the leaf, which surrounds us thanks to the strip of regularly arranged lines that go from the edge to the centre, where the vanishing point is located. Just below the central motif is another small maple leaf, inside which is the date of issue. This maple leaf is one of the Royal Canadian Mint's security measures to prevent counterfeiting of its coins.
On the face of the 2019 silver Maple Leaf coin we find the face of Queen Elizabeth II, with magnificent details in the curls of her hair and the earring and necklace. The background is the same as that of the cross.
The edge has a simple grooved design, formed by regularly arranged horizontal lines.
The silver Maple Leaf coin of 2019 weighs 31.104 grams and has a diameter of 38.00 millimetres. Its face value is 5 Canadian dollars and it is a legal tender in the country.
