On the coin’s reverse side is the eponymous piece of foliage itself, the maple leaf. Arboreal enthusiasts are certain to appreciate detailed rendering of this leaf. To the right of the leaf’s stem is a laser mark, which reveals the mintage year of the coin under strong magnification. The mark functions as a security feature to help deter any potential counterfeit attempts. Encircling the coin, along its border is the coin’s purity, weight and country of origin.
The coin’s obverse displays an effigy of Elizabeth II, which pays homage to Canada’s earlier status as a British ruled colony.
