The Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coin was first issued in 1988 alongside the release of the popular Silver Canadian Maple Leaf. From 1988 to 1993, the Platinum Maple Leaf was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights. In 1994, a 1/15 and 1/20 oz weight were added, though the 1/15 was part of the 15th anniversary of the Maple Leaf Series and only available that year.
Platinum Maple Leafs were issued regularly through 1999, once in 2002, and then not again until 2009. Since 2009, the Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf has been issued only in the 1 oz weight. The coins, as of 2015, feature the Royal Canadian Mint’s latest protective technologies. The laser-engraved maple leaf privy features on the reverse with the date mark’s final two digits inside. There are also light-diffracting radial lines on both sides of the coin.
On the obverse of 2019 Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Introduced in 2002, this design from Susanna Blunt is the fourth-generation image of the Queen and the first since the reign of her father George VI not to feature a crown on the monarch.
The reverse of 2019 1 oz Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coins features the sugar maple leaf. This design is used on all versions of the Canadian Maple Leaf coinage and was designed in 1979 by Walter Ott for the debut of the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf.
