The obverse side of 2020 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leafs features the right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this image of Her Majesty is just the second from the Royal Canadian Mint to be designed by a Canadian artist and the first since the reign of King George VI to depict the monarch without a crown.
On the reverse face of the 2020 Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, you will find the iconic sugar maple leaf. An emblem of Canadian towns, provinces, and governmental agencies for more than 300 years, the sugar maple leaf shown on this side of the coin was designed in 1979 by Walter Ott for use on the Gold Canadian Maple Leafs.
These 2020 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leafs are packaged individually inside of the MintID certificate card. The tamper-proof microchip will render a “tampered” or invalid result if any attempts are made to mess with the coin’s certificate card.
