Each 2019 1 oz 40th Anniversary Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin in this product listing comes to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Royal Canadian Mint. The RCM offers the coins inside of protective packaging, mint tubes, or within boxes of 500 coins.

The first Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins were issued in 1979 with only a 1 oz coin available and a purity of .999 fine gold. In November 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint increased purity to .9999 fine gold. In the years to follow, the mint added fractional-weight coins to the series.
On the reverse side of 2019 1 oz 40th Anniversary Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins is the image of a sugar maple leaf. The coins have the same sugar maple leaf design created in 1979 by Walter Ott for the Royal Canadian Mint. The only addition to this special release is the inclusion of “40” on the sugar maple leaf.
The obverse of 2019 40th Anniversary Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.

Designed in 2003, this is the first monarch portrait to lack a crown since the reign of King George VI.
These 2019 1 oz 40th Anniversary Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins have two security features included in the design. On both sides, you’ll find radial lines in the background field.
