Royal Canadian Mint Starts Rationing of 2013 Silver Maple Leafs

2013 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf

The Royal Canadian Mint has announced today that the 2013 Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin is now on allocation. “Due to very high demand for Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins, the Royal Canadian Mint is carefully managing supply to ensure all our bullion distributors are served and we continue to take orders,”  Alex Reeves, senior manager, communications for the Royal Canadian Mint, told Kitco News this morning.

This follows the U.S. Mint completely selling out of 2013 Silver American Eagles on January 17. The next mintage run is not expected from the Mint until the end of the month.

Gainesville Coins still has a good number of the 2013 Silver Maple Leaf in stock, as well as the 2013 Silver Eagle. In fact, we have several examples of certified MS70 Silver Eagles in stock, in addition to raw Eagles in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
