Various years of this coin are issued with "Privy Marks," outlined below.

The Privy Mark is a small mark to either the left or right of the maple leaf stem, primarily used as a design and marketing feature. Other than the privy mark, the rest of the coin adheres to the same specifications and details as the normal, unmarked coin.

This coin includes privy mark series, such as the 2004 Zodiac Privy Mark Series and the Fabulous 12 & 15 Privy Mark Silver Maple Leafs.
