1 oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Bullion Coin



The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin was first introduced in 1979.

Before the Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coin was minted, the only 1 oz. gold bullion coins produced was the South African Krugerrand, which was not widely available because of the economic boycott of apartheid in South Africa.

In addition, the 1 oz. Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins minted between 1979 and 1982 had a gold content of only .999.

Starting in 1982, the bullion coin has had the fineness of .9999, making them one of the purest gold coins regularly issued, in the world.

Obverse

The obverse side of the 1 oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin displays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain.

The obverse design of the Queen was created by Susanna Blunt.

Her initials "SB," although they are very hard to see, are located at the top of the Queen's right shoulder (in the first person point of view).

"ELIZABETH II" is inscribed across the top of the gold bullion coins.

The 1 oz. gold bullion coin has the Face Value of "50 DOLLARS" and the year the coin was issued is inscribed across the bottom of the coin.




Reverse

The reverse side of  the 1 oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin features the National symbol of Canada, the Maple Leaf.

The design of the Maple Leaf was created by Walter Ott.

Above the golden maple leaf, "CANADA" is inscribed across the top of the gold bullion coins.

Along the bottom of the gold coin its Weight and Purity is inscribed as, "FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR."  

The purity of the coin "9999" fine gold, is inscribed on both sides of the golden maple leaf.

The edge of the gold bullion coin is Reeded.




New Security Feature

gold maple leaf securityfeature

Starting in 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint added a security feature to the 1oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin's reverse side.

The new security mark is a intricately micro-engraved maple leaf design produced by the Mint’s use of laser technology.

Inside of the laser engraved maple leaf is the numeral “14” indicating the coin’s year of issue, which is only visible under magnification.

Note: Currently, only the 1oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf & Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins have this added security feature, there have been no announcements (yet) that this will be added to any other bullion coins.
