These scarce and special edition 2008 Vancouver $5 1 oz silver Maple Leaf coins were struck for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. The reverse of these beautiful coins features an Inukshuk, which is a man-made stone landmark located at English Bay in the West End of Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. The inukshuk was the symbol of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, so it is fitting that its design would appear on these Vancouver Winter Olympics coins. Since their beginning in 1988, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf has been one of the most popular and widely recognized bullion coins in the world. These 2008 $5 Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics coins are minted from one troy ounce of .9999 fine silver, and they carry a face value of $5 CAD, backed by the Canadian government. Quantities of 25 or more coins will be shipped in mint tubes when available. Mintage of these 2008 Vancouver Olympic Inukshuk Maple Leaf coins is listed at well below one million coins, so they possess a greater than normal potential for upward price appreciation.
