Queen Elizabeth II (obverse) – The bust of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse side of the coin, gracefully aging across various vintage coins in a design by Arnold Machin. The newer versions were created by Susanna Blunt. Her initials appear very tiny on the left shoulder. Several other small changes can be found. A similar image of the Queen can also be seen on the popular Australian Kangaroo coin series.
Maple Leaf (reverse) – The reverse depicts a single Canadian Maple Leaf, the national symbol of Canada. The finely detailed design has a proof-like strike down to the veins and texture of the maple leaf itself.
