Why order this 1 oz. Silver 2017 Canada $5 Reverse Proof Maple Leaf - Lunar Year of the Rooster Privy?
This Reverse Proof Silver 2017 Canada $5 1 oz. Maple Leaf - Lunar Year of the Rooster Privy was struck at the Royal Canadian Mint from .9999 fine silver. Its rooster privy marks the new lunar year, making it ideal for those who collect lunar coins, as well as those who like Maple Leafs with privy marks.
Intricate Maple Leaf Design
As is the case with most Canadian coins, Susanna Blunt's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is the obverse design. The monarch wears simple, elegant jewelry and a very conservative smile. Blunt's initials, "SB," are inscribed on her shoulder. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," arches over the image, while the coin's face value and year of issue, "5 DOLLARS 2017," arch under it. Unlike recent editions of the bullion Maple Leaf, this coin does not have radial lines.
The reverse of the coin features the same design as the business strike Maple Leaf. It has an intricately detailed leaf at the center with the coin's purity, "9999," inscribed on both sides. "CANADA" is at the top along the rim, and the coin's weight is provided in English and French at the bottom, reading, "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR." Aries Cheung's rooster privy is included under the left side of the leaf.
