I have been working on and off on a one ounce silver bullion coin type set.
My criteria are:
1. Must be government issued / authorized
2. Must have a denomination (or in the case of the Mexican Libertad, redeemable by the government)
3. Must be multiyear, not a one or two year blip. Four year minimum. Can be same design or can change yearly.
4. Must be seriously meant to be bought / sold as bullion, not a specialty item like "Green eyed guinea pigs of Pitcairn Island" To determine this I set the criteria of must have an average annual mintage of 100,000 or more.

That being said, my current list is:
Armenian Noah
Austrian Philharmonic
Australian Kangaroo
Australian Koala
Australian Kookaburra
Australian Lunar
British Britannia, version 1
British Britannia, version 2
Canadian Maple Leaf
Canadian Wildlife
Chinese Panda
Mexican Onza
Mexican Libertad, version 1
Mexican Libertad, version 2
Niue Turtle
Russian George
U. S. Silver Eagle
S. Africa Silver Krugerrand
Somali Elephant

I just added the Somali Elephant. For many years it's mintage was too low, but it now seems to have passed my cutoff level.

What am I leaving out?
And did the Canadian Maple Leaf originally have a different face value from the current $5?

Niue Silver Athena Owl is at its 5th year of issue (2017-2021)

1 oz silver maples always have $5 face value since 1988

I have been unable to verify mintages on the Silver Owl, but what I see implies too low a mintage for me to count it.

Yeah, Silvertowne never declare the owls mintage. They are certainly not rare and likely not high mintage either.

Canadian Wildlife series ran from 2011 to 2013. Two other bullion series afterwards: Birds of Prey Series (2014-2015, 4 designs, Mintage: 1,000,000 per design) and Predator series (2016-2019, 4 designs, Mintages: 1,000,000, 500,000, 300,000, and 500,000)

Since the Canadian ones are all short term series (less than 4 years each) I'm just lumping them all together as continuations of the Wildlife series.

Thanks for the clarification on the Maple Leaf though.

Rwanda Wildlife, Perth Mint: Swans, Emus, Wedge Tail Eagles are strong (newish) annual issues. I know there are more. My mind is just going blank right now.

The Rwanda Wildlife series apparently does not have enough mintage to meet my criteria as a primarily bullion coin as opposed to simply a silver collectible. That's why I set a minimum average mintage of at least 100,000, as there are just too many ones out there with mintages of 500 or 1000 or even 10,000, I'd never finish.
Trying to check the Perth Mint mintages now.

Thanks, but all of those Perth Mint ones have too low mintages for me to count them. I am really looking for coins primarily sold for bullion, which means unlimited mintage and production of at least 100,000 on average over several years.
But I do thank you for the help and input.

How about the Chiwoo Cheonwang from South Korea and Lion Dollar of The Netherlands?

The 100k Cutoff narrows the list down a fair bit, everything unmentioned that I know of ended up having lower mintages.

However, their prices and availability reflect that of bullion so I will include them here:

Cook Islands HMS Bounty - unlimited mintage
Rep. of Congo Silverback - avg 75k a year
Serbia Nikola Tesla - avg 50k a year
Germania Mythical Forest - avg 30k a year
Netherlands Leeuwendaalder Restrike - avg 25k a year
Manx Longboat Noble - avg 10k a year
New Zealand Kiwi - avg 10k a year

Food for thought.

Australian Dragon coins are also low mintage. And then there is Island of Man with three issues.

The Republic of the Congo Silverbacked Gorilla coins are limited to a mintage of 50,000 per year and so don't make my cut off. There are so many one ounce bullion "coins" out there that I had to have something to narrow the focus or I would just have a never ending quest. My focus question became is it intended to be primarily a government backed silver coin meant to trade at a small premium over spot or is intended to be a silver collectible sold at a higher markup and appeal to collectors primarily based on design or rarity.

The Britannias I think, but don't have any reasoning behind that.
