On the obverse of 1991 1 oz Canadian Silver Maple Leaf coins, you??ll find the third-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This design is the first ever created for Canadian coinage by a Canadian artist, with Dora de Pedery-Hunt completing the design for the 1990 release of the Silver Maple Leaf. Her design is considered the most ornate and regal of the portraits of Queen Elizabeth II on Canadian coins.

The reverse of the 1991 Silver Maple Leaf continues the use of Walter Ott??s original Maple Leaf design. Using the sugar maple leaf, the nation??s official symbol, as his inspiration, Ott developed this design in 1979 for the Gold Maple Leaf.
