Weight (g): 7.3
Diameter (mm): 28
Thickness (mm): 1.8

2012 - present

Weight (g): 6.92
Diameter (mm): 28
Thickness (mm): 1.75
Two laser marks of maple leaves, each within a circle, at the bottom of the coin's reverse
A virtual image of two maple leaves will appear at the top of the coin ? a different image is produced as the coin is turned from side to side.
Edge-lettering of the words "CANADA" and "2 DOLLARS" are engraved along the coin's outer edge.
