The 1/4 oz Gold Maple Leaf was one of the first two weights added to the series after its original offering in 1979. When the broader collection debuted, only a 1 oz gold coin was offered. In November 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint expanded the options in the series to include 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold. The 1/2 oz gold coin was added in 1986, the 1/20 oz coin in 1993, and the 1 Gram coin in 2014.
The obverse of the 2021 1/4 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf includes an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created in 2003 by Ms. Blunt as the fourth-generation effigy during the reign of Elizabeth II. Notably, this is the first portrait of the Queen during her reign to lack a crown on the monarch’s head.
On the reverse of the 2021 Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, you will find the sugar maple leaf symbol that has been emblematic of Canada for more than three centuries. This design captures the natural beauty and simple lines of the sugar maple leaf. As with other coins in this collection, these 1/4 oz gold coins have radial lines in the background field on both the obverse and reverse sides of the coin.
