On the obverse side of the ¼ oz Gold Maple Leaf, you will find the neat and elegant image of Queen Elizabeth II. Facing towards the right, the Queen’s image is simple, yet incredibly intricate in its detail. Not only can you easily make out the detail of the Queen’s facial features, the image itself is raised from the face of the coin so that you can feel the contours of her cheekbones and the beads of her necklace. For a coin so small, it’s amazing how much detail is involved in the imagery.
On the reverse side you will find the maple leaf dominating the central part of the coin. The national symbol of Canada is perfectly centered and complete with extreme attention to detail. Not only are the leaf’s edge crisp and distinguishable from the rest of the coin, its veins and stems are clearly visible — giving the leaf a much more realistic feel. As is the case on the obverse, the reverse side also sees its central image raised from the face of the coin so that the leaf’s texture can be felt.
The ¼ oz Gold Maple Leaf is comprised of 99.99% pure gold, meaning that it carries a level of purity higher than that of most other gold coins. This simple fact, coupled with the coin’s extreme beauty is why Gold Maple Leafs are desired by collectors and investors alike.
