Since it was first introduced in 1979, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf series of coins has been one of the most popular in the world. Part of the reason this series is so popular is due to the fact that these gold coins are offered in a number of different sizes. Though 1979 saw only 1 oz Gold Maple Leafs produced, three years after the coin’s inception it was offered in more sizes — including the 1/10 oz size.

Though simple, the design of this coin is incredibly beautiful and one that is near and dear to the heart of every Canadian. The reverse side of the coin is dominated by the central image of a maple leaf, which is raised from the coin’s face to give it a textured feel. The maple leaf is depicted in such detail that even the creases of the leaf are able to be seen and felt. Accompanying the image of the leaf are purity and weight indications.
The coin’s obverse side depicts Queen Elizabeth II facing rightward. Like the leaf, the image of the Queen is struck with extreme attention to detail. Beneath her image you will find the CAD$5 face value that the coin carries. The coin is equipped with reeded edges, much like many of the coins produced by Canada’s United States neighbor.
