Struck by the award-winning Royal Canadian Mint, this is one of the world's most popular silver coins. This 2017 issue repeats two anti-counterfeit features that were incorporated in 2014. Small radial lines now create a pattern across the coin and a leaf shape micro security mark has been added. The distinctive minting includes a unique proof-like reverse as well as raised engravings, mirror effects and a satin-finish background. Minted in purest 99.99% fine silver, each contains precisely one troy ounce of pure silver. Both collectors and investors look forward to the release of this big bullion coin each year.
