The reverse design features the bullion coin's iconic Silver Maple Leaf in a reverse proof finish. Beneath it to the left, the privy mark celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation in Canada with the Official Canada 150 logo. Ariana Cuvin of Toronto (Ontario) transformed a maple leaf into an eye-catching mosaic representing Confederation. The four diamond shapes connected to the stem symbolize the original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867, while the remaining nine shapes represent the provinces and territories that followed. Combined, they form the iconic symbol that represents unity, freedom and peace for people around the world—an ideal that is now 150 years proud! To the right of the leaf's stem, the dates "1867–2017" further commemorate the special anniversary. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
