In 1999, all Silver Maple Leaf coins that were issued came with a Privy Mark to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Maple Leaf program. The following year, all coins for the year 2000 featured a Privy Mark with Fireworks and the number 2000. Another Silver Maple Leaf was issued to commemorate the Millennium. These coins were produced for January 1, 2000 and the Privy Mark consisted of Fireworks as well. The coins were double dated 1999 and 2000. The coin is struck by the Royal Canadian Mint.
According to the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins (62nd edition, 2007), standard Silver Maple Leafs differ from their Gold and Platinum counterparts in generating collector demand, with the 1996 and 1997 mintings in particular fetching higher prices due to limited pressings (for example, just under 101,000 for the 1997 Maple Leaf compared with more than 1.2 million pressed of the 1999 edition).
some of the privy mark maple leaf were stock only in europe.
