The Maple Leaf
The distinctive shape of the red maple leaf immediately says, “Canada” to people around the world. Its use as a symbol for all that is Canadian dates back centuries, but historians generally recognize 1836 as the year when the maple leaf earned its status as an official national emblem. The founding cultures had their fleur-de-lis (France), roses (England), thistles (Scotland) and shamrocks (Ireland). With the maple leaf, immigrants and native-born Canadians alike could express their pride in their promising new home. Throughout the 19th century, the maple leaf was quickly popularized in print and song. Provincial flags, shields and coats of arms seemed incomplete without it. From 1876 to 1901, the maple leaf was a fixture on virtually every Canadian circulation coin. It became the centrepiece of Canada’s one-cent coin that has been in circulation since 1937.

All four coins feature a reverse design by Canadian artist Celia Godkin that showcases an engraved rendition of Canada’s beloved symbol, the maple leaf, as it is gently carried in the air by a soft autumn breeze. Underscoring Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s role as Canada’s head of state, the Royal Cypher EIIR appears alongside the leaf and the word “CANADA”; the emblem is particularly resplendent on the 1 oz coin, where the addition of enamel adds a regal purple colour to the lettering and rendition of the St. Edward’s Crown. The obverse features the year “2016” along with the purity and each coin’s weight. In celebration of Her Majesty’s long and remarkable reign, different profile portraits are also featured on the obverse: the 1 oz. coin features a 1952 profile portrait of Her Majesty wearing the Imperial State Crown; the 1/4 oz. coin features the effigy that first appeared on Canadian circulation coins in 1953, as designed by Mary Gillick; the 1/10 oz. coin features the 1965 effigy of Her Majesty by Arnold Machin; and the 1/20 oz. coin features the first effigy of Her Majesty to be designed by a Canadian, Dora de Pédery-Hunt. The coins are presented in a red lacquer case with a custom outer box showing an image of Her Majesty on her Coronation day, wearing the Imperial State Crown as shown on the 1 oz coin.
