The obverse of all Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins includes an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s right-profile portrait has appeared on all Canadian coinage since 1953, and the Gold Maple Leafs have gone through three different generations of Her Majesty’s portrait. Coins from 1982 to 1989 featured Arnold Machin’s design, followed by Dora de Pedery-Hunt’s from 1990 to 2003. Modern coins have the Susanna Blunt design.
On the reverse, all 1/10 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins feature the sugar maple leaf design in use since the coin’s debuted in 1979. The singular maple leaf is featured in full stretch with engravings of “Canada,” “9999,” “Fine Gold,” and “1/10 oz Or Pur.”
