The reverse of the coin shows a maple leaf which is also depicted on the national flag of Canada. The design has not been changed since its creation but why should you change something so successful and delightful?
The sugar Maple leaf trees were used by the Canadian aboriginal people as a food source. The European settlers used them conveniently to produce and export sugar. It is quite natural that the Leaf ended up on the national coin.Here is a lovely rendition of the Leaf by artist Walter Ott. It is a very realistic design of the leaf, with amazing attention to details: the leaf’s texture,its unique shape, and its veins are truly remarkable.
The coins of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Series feature light-refracting radial lines in the background, an element which was added to the coins in 2015. We can also find the privy mark, metal type and weight and purity (written in the two official languages of Canada, English and French)
The obverse depicts a profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Since the Maple Leaf coin was first minted, the only changes to the obverse of the coin have been to the profile of the Queen as she has aged. From 1988 to 1989, the Queen was portrayed as 39 years old; from 1990 until 2004 she was depicted as 64 years old and from 2005 to date she has been portrayed aged 79. The latest design is the work of Susanna Blunt.
Of course Queen Elizabeth passed away in September 2022 and this coin is also an homage to her and her amazing reign.
The portrait seems a lot more relaxed and the Queen is only wearing earrings and a necklace (no crown).
On this side, the words 'ELIZABETH II', the value of the coin “20 dollars” and the year it was minted are printed. There is also a special engraving marking of the years of her reign (1952-2022)
