As often happens in the second year of availability for silver bullion coins, the 1989 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf saw a significant jump in its mintage level. During the introductory 1988 release, the Royal Canadian Mint produced 1.115 million of the popular Silver Maple Leaf coins. For 1989, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf nearly tripled to 3.332 million coins.

Each of the 1989 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins in this Dave&Co listing have a Brilliant Uncirculated grade. The BU condition of these coins means there are no signs of wear and tear, but do feature minor detracting flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the striking process.

On the reverse side of the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf youll find the image of the sugar maple leaf, along with engravings that identify the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin.

The obverse of the 1989 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf features a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II created by Arnold Machin. This was the second and final year that Machins portrait of the Queen would appear on the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf, as it was replaced in 1990 by a portrait from Dora de Pederey-Hunt.

Each of these 1989 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins ships to you in plastic pouches, which were the official mint packaging provided to Dave&Co.
