On the reverse of each coin you’ll find the image of the Sugar Maple Leaf used on the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins since their 1988 introduction. The Big Foot Privy mark featured on these coins comes from the famous 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film that purported to show a Big Foot in the wilds of northern California.
Big Foot is believed to be a simian-like creature from American folklore that is said to inhabit forests across the North American continent. These supposed bipedal humanoids are sighted in the greatest numbers in the Pacific Northwest, but similar creatures have been spotted in the Eastern US, the states of Florida and Louisiana, and even in the Himalaya Mountains of Central Asia.
The obverse side of each of the Big Foot Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is on the obverse of all Canadian coinage and has been since 1952 when she ascended to the throne of the United Kingdom. This particular depiction was created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt.
All Big Foot Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins are available in a reverse-proof finish. Coins with this appearance have a strong, frosted background field and a deeply-mirrored, clear finish to the design sets. This stands in stark contrast to the typical proof finish, with frosted designs overlaying a clear background.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. Originally founded in Ottawa in 1908, it operated that one facility alone until the 1980s when a second one opened in Winnipeg to help boost production capacity.
