The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is one of the most recognizable coins in the world, and in this special product listing you have the chance to purchase a very unique version of the popular silver bullion coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. Combining the reputation of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf and the popularity of lunar-themed coins, the RCM offers the 2016 Monkey Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. The coin is available right now from LPM in reverse proof.
Lunar-themed coins are immensely popular right now, and it is common practice at the Royal Canadian Mint to honor the animals of the Zodiac in multiple ways. The addition of a lunar privy mark to the popular Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is just one of the many ways that RCM celebrates the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
2016 is the Year of the Monkey, and as such the Royal Canadian Mint added the image of a monkey to the reverse face of the 2016 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. The small privy mark features a left-profile image of a monkey seated just to the lower left of the sugar maple leaf design.
On the reverse face of the coin you’ll find the traditional Canadian Silver Maple Leaf design. Above it is the word “Canada,” while the purity is featured on either side as “9999.” Below the coin, in addition to the Year of the Monkey privy mark, is the engraving “Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur.”
The obverse features the familiar right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy is accompanied by engravings of her name, the year of issue, and the face value of the coin.
Each of these 2016 Monkey Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins has a reverse proof finish. This type of striking gives a deeply-mirrored finish to the design fields of the coin, such as the maple leaf and the engraved words, while the background field is frosted in a matte finish.
