The Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf in 1988. The coin was the first-ever .9999 fine silver bullion coin in the modern marketplace. Shortly after its introduction, the Royal Canadian Mint began offering small mintages of the coin each year with a unique privy mark. The very first privy mark was one honoring the 10th anniversary of the Canadian Maple Leaf Series. In 1998, the very first Zodiac Series privy marks were made available in the collection.

Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2012 Dragon Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leafs. The bust of Elizabeth II featured here is the fourth-generation design for Canadian coins and was created for the Royal Canadian Mint in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. This is the first image of the Queen during her reign to showcase the monarch without a crown.
A sugar maple leaf is featured in the reverse design field of the 2012 1 oz Dragon Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf. The coins all have the Walter Ott design of the sugar maple leaf from 1979, with a Year of the Dragon privy mark present on this field.
