As a Commonwealth nation, Canada’s coinage always features the image of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. As a living monarch with the longest reign in British history, her portrait is occasionally updated to reflect her age at different periods during her reign. The Silver Canadian Maple Leaf was first issued in 1988, and three images of Her Majesty have appeared on coins as a result.
Since this product listing offers Silver Canadian Maple Leaf coins from varied years of issue, it is possible you’ll receive a coin with one of three portraits of Queen Elizabeth II. Coins issued in 1988 and 1989 feature Arnold Machin’s first-generation portrait. Those issued from 1990 to 2003 feature Dora de Pedery-Hunt’s second-generation portrait. All coins struck after 2004 bear Susanna Blunt’s third-generation image.
On the reverse side of all coins in this product listing, you’ll find the sugar maple leaf in the center of the design. “Canada” is engraved above the design, with the purity listed on either side, while the weight and metal content are engraved below. Coins struck after 2014 feature new security details. Most notably, micro-laser engraved radial lines on both sides, and a maple leaf image on the reverse that shows the year of issue under 15-times magnification.
