History: The Canadian Gold Maple was first produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979. It was the second source of gold bullion to be recognized worldwide, trailing only to South Africa’s Gold Krugerrand. The concept of the Maple Leaf was brainstormed by Walter Ott, who was looking to create an alternative to the Krugerrand. In less than a year, Ott’s vision became a reality, and the RCM began producing his work. Decades later, and the design continues to be one of national pride and worldwide popularity. The original obverse design, released in 1979, features a young Queen Elizabeth II, at age 39. The image remained until 1990, when it was replaced with a 64-year-old Elizabeth, and 15 years later, with a 79-year-old portrait of her majesty. The 2005 update remains as the current, standard design. In its original release in 1979, the Maple Leaf had a purity of 99.9%. However, in 1982, the RCM re-introduced the coin with a higher standard of 99.99%. A variety of sizes and denominations have been produced since, in addition to several special edition and anniversary collections. 


Design: Unlike its competitors, the Canadian Gold Maple has carried a lasting and consistent design, with only a few minor changes over the years. The obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, originally designed by artist and sculptor Arnold Machin. Machin’s work was additionally used on a variety of currency from Australia and New Zealand. The design has changed on three separate occasions and was last updated in 2005. “Elizabeth II”, “5 Dollars” and the year are also engraved. All 2020 Gold Maples will feature the most recently updated portrait of her majesty, the Queen.   The reverse image features Canada’s national symbol, the maple leaf. The significance of this foliage has been traced back to early French Canadian settlers in the 19th century, who were enamored with the leaf, claiming it was the most majestic in the forest. The significance of the maple leaf has stood the test of time and continues to be a symbol of pride, unity and solidarity. The word “Canada” is inscribed, as well as the coin’s weight, purity and gold content. The detailed artistry of this design undoubtedly make it an instant classic that is desirable to both investors and collectors around the world. 


Composition: The Royal Canadian Mint originally debuted each Gold Maple with a purity of .999. However, all coins produced from after 1982 have a 99.99% gold content that is guaranteed by the Canadian Government. This makes any Maple Leaf one of the most pure forms of bullion available on the market today. 


Packaging Info: Each 2020 1/10 ounce Gold Maple will arrive in a protective, plastic sleeve for your convenience. The Royal Canadian Mint has an established reputation you can rely on, with four decades of astonishing experience.

    First time buying from Hero bullion and it was a great experience. Amazing prices, even with the demand surge at the time of ordering this. They shipped out my order extremely quickly, and was packaged better than I could ever ask for. Beautiful coin and will be buying again from Hero Bullion soon.
