The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf is the second-oldest gold bullion series in the world. It debuted in 1979 after more than 12 years of dominance by the Gold South African Krugerrand. The Krugerrand may have been the first to market, but the Gold Maple Leaf was the first to hit .9999 fine gold content when the Royal Canadian Mint boosted content from .999 to .9999 in November 1982.
On the reverse of all 2018 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins is the depiction of the sugar maple leaf. A renowned symbol of Canada, the maple leaf has been used since the mid-1700s by early French explorers and settlers as a symbol for the region. Today it is so important to the nation it features on the national flag.
The obverse of all 2018 Gold Maple Leaf coins features the right-profile portrait of the Queen of England. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II is depicted in this fourth-generation portrait in right-profile relief. This design was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt who became just the second Canadian to ever design a monarch’s effigy for Canadian coinage.
