It is a lengthy series now; so many collectors continue to purchase the Silver Maple Leaf annually to keep their sets up to date. The Royal Canadian Mint has also issues sever special Maples with different finishes, designs and privy marks. This variety adds to collector interest, increasing demand for the Silver Maple Leaf. In 2014, The Maple Leaf debuted with a grooved surface as an anti-counterfeiting device. These new Maple Leafs have a dazzling appearance. It is well worth the premium to buy a few of these just to see how striking they are. Canada Silver Maple Leafs are more expensive than other non-government minted forms of pure silver. However, the premium may be justified to buy the security of a government minted coin that has a collector following too.
