The 2020 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf coin’s design is based on the iconic Maple Leaf bullion coins the Mint has produced since it introduced its first gold bullion coin in 1979. The Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin was introduced in 1988. It immediately set a new standard as the world’s first 99.99% pure silver bullion coin. It bears the same reverse design as the Gold Maple Leaf—a highly recognizable image created by Master Engraver Walter Ott.

The reverse design for this coin reproduces Master Engraver Walter Ott’s maple leaf from the Mint’s original 1979 bullion coin. This design remains in use on all Royal Canadian Mint bullion coins to this day. The reverse also features a “W” mint mark to the left of the leaf stem, indicating that this numismatic coin was struck at the Canadian Mint’s Winnipeg facility. The obverse includes the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
