The face value of the 1 oz coin is 5 Canadian dollars, the highest among international silver bullion coins. During 2008, the market value of the coin was approximately 20 Canadian dollars. The market value in 2011 was above 30 Canadian dollars. The purity of the coin is 99.99% silver, also the highest among other bullion issues which have a 99.9% standard.
A common blemish that many Canadian Silver Maple Leaves carry is the "Milk Spot." It is a baked-in blemish that has a milky white appearance. This happens when a cleaning detergent is left on the coin when the coin goes into the annealing furnace. The detergent gets baked into the coin itself and leaves a spot that cannot be removed easily.
The coin always features a maple leaf and generally consists of 1 troy ounce (31.1 g) of silver. Annual variations for the coin in past have included proof releases (1989 only), privy marks, a coloured maple leaf (with a design different from the regular maple leaf), holographic enhancements and several differing designs, such as a 2009 issue commemorating the 2010 Winter Olympics.
