On the reverse of 2020 2 oz 100th Anniversary Royal Canadian Mounted Police Silver Coins is the image of a Mountie on horseback with a unit or squadron flag hoisted high above on a spear or flagpole. The Mounties are no longer a horse-mounted police force, but rather, got its name from the origins of the police force as one that moved from territory to territory on horseback.

The obverse of 2020 100th Anniversary Royal Canadian Mounted Police Silver Coins includes a bust of the reigning monarch of England at the time the force was founded. Established in 1920, King George V was the King of England for nearly a decade at the time of the forces founding. George V would serve as King of England until his death in 1936, at which point his son Edward VIII briefly succeeded him. Edward VIII would quickly abdicate the throne in favor of his brother, George VI, the father of current monarch Queen Elizabeth II.
