The maple leaf is a proud and distinctive Canadian symbol, appearing on all Canadian coins minted between Confederation and 1935. The modern 1-cent coin features two maple leaves on the same twig. The design, created by G.E. Kruger Gray, was first used in 1937 and has remained unchanged with one exception: in 1967, a rock dove designed by renowned Canadian artist Alex Colville appeared on the reverse to celebrate Canada's Centennial. Countess Grey struck the first 1-cent coin on January 2, 1908 at the official opening of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint (which became the Royal Canadian Mint in 1931).


Design:
The obverse design depicts the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in right profile, when she was 39 years old. It is surrounded with the inscription "ELIZABETH II D • G • REGINA".

This coin depicts a maple leaf twig surrounded with the facial value and the inscription "CANADA".
