For decades, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin has been an extremely exciting annual release for members of the collectible coin community. Bullion collectors respect the coin’s high gold purity, while collectors enjoy the intricate images on the obverse and reverse sides of the piece. Because of the longevity of this particular coin series, the Royal Canadian Mint often sells quite a few of these coins to bullion fans each year.   


The classic design of the Canadian sugar maple leaf has been one of the most popular icons of Canada and its people for at least a hundred years. Its use as a symbol for the country dates back to the early twentieth century, although nonofficial uses might be even older. Set against the pure gold striking, the maple shines particularly bright; its intricate veins are on full display with the beautiful .9999 gold used for this ¼ ounce coin.   


Key Features:   

  • .9999 pure gold. 
  • Backed by the Canadian government (face value: $10). 
  • Reverse depiction: The Canadian sugar maple leaf. 
  • Obverse depiction: Either Queen Elizabeth II or King Charles Effigy
  • Random year. 
  • Security features may vary based on years in inventory.


Clearly, the ¼ ounce Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin is completely backed by the Canadian government, as well as Queen Elizabeth II herself. Her image decorates the obverse side of the coin. The particular design of the Queen’s effigy depends largely on the year the coin was minted. In this way, a full collection of these coins presents a fascinating history of the Queen as she ages into the monarch she is today.


The backing of the Canadian government, as well as the support of the Royal Family, helps to legitimize this coin as a popular way to invest capital.    On the reverse side of the coin, another classic image of Canada is represented. The sugar maple leaf is a famous symbol for the country, as well as its people. The maple industry has always been booming; indigenous groups historically relied on the plant for sustenance.


Although Canada’s modern economy is much more diversified, the image of the maple leaf has become a cultural landmark for both the country’s government and its diverse people.    These coins are carefully shipped and come minted in a random year. All of the coins sold in this collection are in brilliant uncirculated condition, making them an excellent investment for collectors who are fans of the rich and vibrant history of both the Canadian sugar maple leaf and the country that it often represents.  


Struck with fine .9999 pure gold, the historic images of Queen Elizabeth II and the Canadian sugar maple leaf decorate the two sides of the ¼ Oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin. The images paint a beautiful picture of the history and culture of Canada, while its backing by the Canadian government helps to make it a more legitimate store of value. Truly a multifaceted investment, these Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins from random years are a great way to expand a collection’s cultural significance and value– all at once!
