    Pictures of the Canadian Silver Maple that I normally buy. Funny, there's now a shortage of ACTUAL silver coins but the PAPER price has collapsed. Probably the works of the "PLUNGE PROTECTION TEAM" and other price manipulators. Now back to the picture: :D

    Still no Silver Coins available in the marketplace. Demand is high but there is no supply. The price of Silver and Gold are still down. I guess the Law of Supply and Demand has been repealed. :D

    Then there were the┬* coins back then which were distinguished by several species of animals stamped on the reverse side, depending on the coin's denomination.

    I still have some pieces of the 50-centavo coin wherein the scientific name for the Philippine Eagle, "Pithecophaga jefferyi" was wrongly spelled as Pithecobhaga jefferyi. :P

    They rectified the error on succeeding minting, though.
