Coin Designs The design of the Canadian Maple Leaf has undergone annual changes that include proof releases, various privy marks, holographic enhancements and commemorative variations in gold, silver and platinum.
However, the basic features of the Maple Leaf have remained the same since 1979. The 2021 design features complex radial lines and a micro-engraved laser mark. The small privy maple leaf is also a security feature, including the number 21 to signify the year of issue, micro-engraved into the surface. This security feature will only be visible under magnification.
