The Canadian Wildlife Series was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint from 2011 to 2013 with two designs issued annually over that stretch. Pierre LeDuc created the original designs used in the first four releases, with Emily Damstra taking over to complete the series with designs of the Antelope and Wood Bison in 2013. Starting in 2016, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the Wild Canada Series to revive these popular creatures on a privy mark collection of Silver Maple Leaf Coins.

On the reverse of 2018 Wood Bison Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins is the design of the sugar maple leaf. Created in 1979 by Walter Ott, this image appears on all versions of Canadian Maple Leaf program. Below the maple leaf is a small wood bison privy. The wood bison is a distinct northern subspecies of the American bison that once roamed from the boreal forests of Alaska and the Yukon Territories to British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
The obverse of 2018 1 oz Wood Bison Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leafs features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created in 2002 by Susanna Blunt as the fourth-generation image of the Queen to feature on Canadian currency. Blunt was just the second Canadian to ever design the monarch’s effigy for the Royal Canadian Mint.
