On the reverse of the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf is the iconic national symbol of Canada. The first people to use the maple leaf as an emblem for Canada were French settlers in the 1700s. By 1836, a newspaper in Lower Canada called Le Canadien suggested the maple leaf was the ideal emblem for the region. Today it appears on the official bullion coin collection and countless other public and private seals or symbols.

The obverse of the 2001 Silver Maple Leaf coin has a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. This design is the most regal and elegant on Canadian coins. It is also the only one to feature the Queen wearing a larger, more ornate crown with earrings and a necklace. Many of these elements are toned down in other versions of Her Majesty??s portrait for Canadian coinage past and present.
