The Premium Bullion in special packaging products feature the Mint's genuine, world-renowned Silver and Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins in uncirculated condition. The SML is crafted of 1 oz. of 99.99% pure silver and enhanced with cutting-edge security features, including a micro-engraved security mark and radial lines.
