Full Description

First released in 1979, when the only gold bullion coin on the market was the South African Krugerrand, the Gold Canadian Maple Leafs become the second world investment coin. Minted in a variety of weights, the Gold Maple Leafs come in 1, ½, ¼, 1/10, 1/20, 1/25 and 1 gram sizes. 

The 2016 1 Oz. Gold Maple Leaf has a denomination of $50 dollars and contains one troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. Earlier Maple Leafs contained .999 gold, but the purity was improved in 1982 and all succeeding Gold Maple Leafs contain the purer gold content.

The Obverse

Shown on the front of the 1 Oz. Gold Maple Leaf is a rightward facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II; who remains Canada's sovereign with the legislative body consisting of a parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy. The design has changed several times since it's introduction, but the portrait of the Queen has always been surrounded by her name above, and the denomination and year below. 

The Reverse

On the back of the coin is the most recognized symbol of Canada: the Maple leaf. Having been the countries symbol since the early 18th century, the Maple Leaf is national symbol of Canada and is even featured on their flag. The beautifully detailed Maple Leaf is the central object of the coin's reverse, showing intricate vein's and depth. Surrounding the image are the inscriptions denoting the coin's weight and purity. A privy mark is located below the Maple Leaf's image to the right: privy marks were used occasionally on Gold Maple Leafs from 1997 through 2005 and became a regular fixture on the coins since 2011.
