The Royal Canadian Mint has produced this series since 1988. The images used on the coins are the same which have been in use on the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf since 1979. Susanna Blunt is responsible for the image of Queen Elizabeth II featured on the obverse side of the coin. The Royal Canadian Mint engravers created the image of the maple leaf used on the reverse side of the coin.
On the obverse side of the coin, Blunt’s right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth II is featured in the center. Her image is surrounded by the engravings “Elizabeth II” and the year of minting for the particular coin. Blunt’s image of Her Majesty has been updated only twice since its original design was unveiled. Both changes were made to reflect the Queen’s age during her reign. The image of the maple leaf has changed little over the years, with any changes offering improvements in the detail of the image.
The reverse side of the coin features the RCM engravers’ image of the maple leaf. The image is surrounded by the engravings “Canada,” “.9999,” and the phrase “Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur.” These 2011 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins have been graded MS69 by the NGC. This grade indicates a coin with sharp, attractive strikes of the mint and year marks on the coin, with no more than two flaws or scratches on the coin.
