The obverse of these coins showcases a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Canadian artist Dora de Pedery-Hunt. This image, featuring the Queen in right-profile relief at 64 years of age, graced the obverse of Canadian Silver Maple Leafs from 1990 to 2004. Inscriptions include ELIZABETH II, 5 DOLLARS, 2001.


On the reverse field, you’ll find the iconic maple leaf design by Walter Ott, a symbol synonymous with Canadian pride. Accompanied by the Year of the Snake privy, this image pays homage to the unique theme of the Lunar Snake. Inscriptions include CANADA, 9999, 9999, FINE SILVER, 1 OZ, ARGENT PUR, and SNAKE.


The RCMs roots can be traced back to 1908 when they were just known as the Royal Mint. Following The Great Depression, they joined with the Canadian Government to create the Royal Canadian Mint. Now, the Royal Canadian Mint has two locations, the original in Ottawa which handles domestic production, while the newer Winnipeg location deals with international production.
