On the obverse side of all 2017 Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins you’ll find the iconic right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s effigy appears on the obverse of all Canadian coinage, and has appeared on the Gold Maple Leaf in three different iterations since 1979. This depiction was created by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003, debuting in 2005 on the Gold Maple Leaf.
The reverse side of all 1 Gram Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins features the sugar maple leaf, the official emblem of the nation. It is used by countless groups, such as the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL and even appears on the national flag of Canada. This is accompanied by engravings of the nation of issue, purity, weight, and metal content of the coin, as well as new radial lines to prevent counterfeiting.
All 2017 25 Gram Gold Canadian MapleGram products in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear on the surfaces, although you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to the presence of contact marks sustained during the production process at the mint.
Founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint’s first major job was to refine the gold and other precious metals discovered in the Yukon Territories in the late 19th century. Its other major function was, of course, to provide independent control for the young nation over its own currency production.
