Why Investors Should Purchase Silver Maple Leaf

By Jamie Vanasse

At the moment, every smart investor is purchasing the Canadian silver maple leaf and its among the most striking purchases one can make. An item of extreme beauty, purity and rarity, this is an object well loved by collectors. It appeared to the world in 1988 and is minted in palladium, platinum and gold, too. However, silver is the best investment currently. Here are the reasons.

Previously, platinum was the investment of the future due to its rarity, closely followed by gold with silver distantly following in third place. Because this metal is steadily increasing in rarity, its value is rising. It has a large range of industrial uses, featured as part of cellular telephone batteries, DVDs and motors. Of course, it’s also used in jewellery and is an excellent conductor, which only adds to its necessity.

This means that supply is dropping quickly, to such an extent that it’s now endangered. The supply and demand law is coming into effect, insisting on rising prices. It was worth $50 in 2011.

This is expected to escalate rapidly as less and less of this metal becomes available. While the price of the bullion may be fairly high, its value is lower than it was in 2011, and it’s set to rise exponentially, bringing investors ample return for their money. In 2012, their value has climbed incredibly, with no significant or permanent drops. On the second of February 2012, they reached their all time high.

This particular bullion is one of the purest coins produced globally, containing one troy ounce of . 9999. Aside from its purity, its beauty is sought after by the kind of collectors who wouldn’t dream of selling theirs. It carries a picture of Queen Elizabeth the second. On its tail it has an image of the maple leaf, which is the national symbol of Canada.

From Monex, a minimum of 100 coins must be bought, which will be delivered personally. These are technically perfect bullions, and highly valued for being so. Other on line suppliers sell them in smaller quantities. The internet is the only place one is able to purchase such small numbers.

Minting year defines the value of the bullion. In years when particularly low quantities were produced, value is especially high, particularly in ’96 and ’97. Coins limited to European sales also hold more value.

Images have been altered over years as well, in which Queen Elizabeth IIs age has changed. Certain leaves were shaded, depending on their season. Spring featured green leaves while autumn featured red.

The Olympics yielded a special mint and Zodiac images have been a feature. There are anniversary editions and Chinese Zodiac versions. These are the type of bullions collectors will enjoy hunting down as they have higher collectors’ and investment value.

What ever their reason for purchasing this beautiful and rare object, the silver maple leaf is one of the best buys one can make. Due to size, it makes for an easily stored purchase which decreases one’s paper pile. This bullion is only going to become rarer.
