Maple Leaf Silver Coin Value

The Maple Leaf silver coin is denominated with $5 and legal tender in the Canadian Currency and Exchange Act as specified in Part 1 of the schedule to the Act. But the Maple Leaf is not viewed as a coin in circulation as the coin is mainly bought by gold investors and numismatists. The real value of the Maple Leaf is founded in the content of pure silver which is 31.10 grams for the 1oz coin.
