Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coin
The classic design of the gold Maple Leaf coin is virtually unchanged from its introduction. The bust of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse side of the coin, gracefully aging across various vintage coins in a design by Arnold Machin. The reverse depicts a single Canadian Maple Leaf, the national symbol of Canada.
The Royal Canadian Mint pioneered the concept of minting a gold coin without the need for a strengthening alloy in order to produce the gold Maple Leaf in such high purity. Such purity proved to be extremely popular with collectors and investors worldwide.
Guaranteed by the Government of Canada and traded in world markets since 1979, gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins are beautifully struck with a gold purity of .9999.
