The coins in the 2021 Four Seasons Set have a Year of Peace design concept, with ruthenium-plated background fields on both sides, gold-plated peace symbols superimposed over the Queen’s effigy on the obverse, and colorized maple leaf designs on the reverse.
Silver Maple Leafs in the Four Seasons Set include a total of four individual coins with the 2021 date mark. Each coin’s reverse field has the sugar maple leaf with colorized visuals. These visuals are meant to capture the changing seasons of the year, hence the name Four Seasons Set. The colorized visuals on this side are limited to the maple leaf design. Both sides of the coins have a ruthenium plating that creates a darker background field for greater contrast between design and surface area.
The obverse of the coins in the 2021 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Year of Peace Edition Four Seasons Set includes the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this right-profile portrait of Her Majesty is the fourth-generation design of her reign. Each of the four coins has a different peace symbol on this side that has a 24-karat gold plating. The symbols include a dove, peace pipe, the peace hand sign, and a peace symbol.
On the reverse of each coin from the 2021 Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Four Seasons Set is a depiction of the sugar maple leaf. Originally designed in 1979 by Walter Ott, the maple leaf on each coin has a different color to reflect a different season. Light green represents spring, while dark green reflects summer’s warmth and richness. Fall is captured with a deep red, while winter is characterized by a brown leaf.
