The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf holds a special place in the history of gold bullion coins. It was first introduced in 1979 to meet demand in the market following the economic boycott of apartheid-era products, notably the Krugerrand, from South Africa. The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf quickly became one of the most popular coins in the world, thanks in large part to the impressive purity of each coin.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1/10 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf is the image of a lone maple leaf. Captured in intricate detail and stunning lines, the maple leaf is flanked on each side by engravings of its purity, .9999, and surrounded by engravings that include “CANADA,” the weight, and metal content of the coin.
The obverse side features the right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth, as designed by Blunt. The Queen’s image is encircled by the engravings “Elizabeth II,” the face value of the coin, and the year of minting.
The Royal Canadian Mint was first opened in Ottawa to handle the rush of gold coming from the Yukon Territories. Today, it operates an additional facility in Winnipeg and produces all Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins from these locations.
