Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins are arguably one of the most popular gold bullion products in the world today. The Gold Maple Leaf was the first gold bullion coin to counter the market stranglehold of the Gold Krugerrand, and was released for the first time in 1979 with .999 gold content. Right now, 1/20 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com from varied years of issue in BU condition.

All of the 1/20 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins available today at Silver.com are in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but may feature a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the coining process.
The introduction of the 1/20 oz Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin in 1993 made gold more affordable to a wider range of investors. Because of the smaller size and weight of these coins, the .9999 fine gold content is lesser than a 1 oz coin by weight, and therefore more affordable to all investors based upon the price of gold.
On the obverse of all Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s right-profile portrait on these coins varies based upon year of issue. Coins from 1993 to 2004 feature the second-generation image of the Queen as a 64 year old, while 2005-to-present coins have Susanna Blunt’s 2003 depiction of the Queen as a 79 year old.
The reverse of the 1/20 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin you’ll find the sugar maple leaf, the iconic official emblem of the nation. Modern Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins, released after 2014, also feature micro-laser engraved radial lines to combat counterfeiting and a maple leaf mark with the year of issue engraved inside of it and visible only under magnification.
Silver.com is offering you the 1/20 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf in this listing. While we guarantee each of the coins is in BU condition, we cannot guarantee the specific year of issue you will receive. A coin struck between 1993 and the current release will be shipped to you based upon availability in our warehouse when your order is fulfilled for shipping.
