The Royal Canadian Mint introduced fractional-ounce coins into the Gold Maple Leaf Series between 1982 and 1993. The 1982 release saw the metal fineness of all coins enhanced to .9999 from .999 purity, with a 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coin introduced. In 1986, the mint introduced a 1/2 oz gold coin. In 1993, the final fractional-ounce coin was unveiled with the debut of the 1/20 oz gold coins.
The obverse side of 2022 Gold Canadian Maple Leafs features a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is the longest-reigning monarch of England and remains the sovereign head of state for Canada as the nation is a constitutional monarchy within the Commonwealth. The portrait shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing earrings and a necklace. The image was designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003.
On the reverse face of the 2022 1/20 oz Gold Maple Leaf is an image of the sugar maple leaf. The sugar maple is one of many species of maple tree. A deciduous hardwood, the sugar maple can be found as far west as Nova Scotia and is found along the US-Canada border and into the southeast of Canada in Manitoba, Quebec, and Ontario. Both the obverse and reverse fields have radial lines for anti-counterfeiting security.
