For the 1990 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coin, a new portrait of the Queen was used for the first time in the silver bullion collection. It was a significant design for many reasons. First and foremost, it is arguably the most regal of the designs to feature the Queen wearing a larger crown, necklace, and earrings. It was also the first design from a Canadian artist.

On the obverse of 1990 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Hunt was the first Canadian artist to complete the Queen??s portrait on Canadian coins and retained the use of ??D.G. Regina?? in the inscription on the obverse over the previous ??Dei Gratia Regina.??

The reverse of Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coins features the sugar maple leaf. A symbol of the Canadian nation known internationally, this image has been on Canadian Maple Leaf coins since the 1979 release of the Gold Maple Leaf and includes engravings of the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin.
