2024 Silver Maple Leafs

2024 Silver Maple Leafs featuring King Charles III for the first time

The new 2024 Silver Maple Leafs are highly collectible and historically significant because for the first time ever the front face has a monarch other than Queen Elizabeth II gracing it.

Canada’s signature silver bullion coin is one of the world’s most iconic and instantly recognizable coins. Since its introduction in 1988, the coin has featured a maple leaf on the reverse and Queen Elizabeth II on the face.

Instead of Queen Elizabeth II (who passed away in on Sept. 8, 2022), this year’s coin introduces the first Canadian effigy of King Charles III. His Majesty King Charles III was officially proclaimed King of Canada on Sept. 10, 2022.

Why a Maple Leaf?

The maple leaf has been Canada’s national symbol since the 1800s. Canadian pennies started featuring maple leaves in the 1850s. Then from 1876 to 1901, the maple leaf appeared on all Canadian coins.

Of course, the maple leaf isn’t just used on coins. It’s also a symbol of Canadian identity. In 1868, it was used on the Ontario and Quebec coat of arms. It was on the Olympic uniforms of Canadian athletes beginning in 1908. It was featured on Canadian military uniforms and equipment in both World Wars. And it was put on the country’s new national flag in 1965.

It’s said that the distinctive maple leaf signifies pride, connection, and community.
