On the obverse of the coin is Queen Elizabeth II. As is traditional, these coins feature the queen at different times in her life. This coin shows her at age 79 facing right wearing a simple dress, pearl earrings, and a pearl necklace. The artwork is by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt. Showing the queen without her crown gives her a more casual appearance as if she is waiting to entertain guests for tea. The pearls and her confident look still give her a regal air. Engraved on her right shoulder we see Blunt’s initials, ‘SB’. Above the queen is written ‘Elizabeth II’. Below her portrait is ‘50 Dollars 2023’.
Walter’s Ott’s design of a sugar maple leaf is on the reverse of the coin. Ott’s design is very intricate and is a very realistic portrayal of the leaf. This leaf has historical significance as the sugar maple trees were used by the Canadian aboriginal people as an important food source. Later the European settlers found the sugar maple leaf to be a convenient source of sugar. The sugar maple leaf is iconic to Canada as a national symbol. It adorns their flag and is used by their military. Above the leaf is written ‘Canada’. To the right and left of the leaf is ‘9999’ referring to the purity of the gold, .9999. At the bottom of the coin is ‘Fine Gold’ and ‘1/4 oz OR Pur’. Included on this coin is a micro-lasered maple leaf as an anti-counterfeiting measure. When viewed under a microscope, it shows a ‘23’.
