Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins all feature the same reverse designs, with little exception. The sugar maple leaf is featured in the center of the design field, with engravings around its shape of the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin. Silver Maple Leafs struck from 2014 onward have a micro-engraved maple leaf privy on this face for added security, as well as radial lines.
The obverse of all Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins have an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. However, the specific year of issue you receive will determine the exact right-profile portrait of Her Majesty featured on the design. The 1988 and 1989 Silver Maple Leafs feature the second-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II used on Canadian coinage from 1965 to 1989.
All coins struck between 1990 and 2002 have the third-generation portrait of Her Majesty created by Canadian artist Dora de Pedery-Hunt. It captures the Queen at age 64 and was the first design completed by a Canadian artist. Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins produced from 2003 onward feature the fourth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created by Susanna Blunt, another Canadian artist, it is the first portrait of a monarch on Canadian coinage without a crown since Elizabeth II’s father King George VI (1937-1952).
