Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins debuted in 1979 as 1 oz .999 fine gold bullion coins. In November 1982, the series grew to feature 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins as well, with all coins issued from that point onward using .9999 fine gold content instead of .999 fine gold. The next additions would come in 1986, 1993, and 2014.
The subsequent additions in the series started with the 1986 release of the first-ever 1/2 oz Gold Maple Leaf. In 1993, the series offered a 1/20 oz gold coin for the first time. 21 years later, the series expanded one more time in 2014 to include a unique 1 Gram gold coin. Today, the series continues with those options each year.
The obverse side of 2021 1/2 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leafs features Queen Elizabeth II. As the reigning monarch of England, she features on the obverse of all Commonwealth coins to include Canadian currency. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief in this design created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt.
On the reverse face of the 2021 Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, you will find the sugar maple leaf. The modern image of the maple leaf is based on the iconic 1979 depiction of the natural splendor of the sugar maple leaf created by Walter Ott. This design features on all coins in the series from the six weights in gold to the silver, platinum, and palladium.
