It’s hard to deny the impressive design of the Canadian Gold Maple. The series has long been a favorite among collectors, and with good reason. The veiny texture of the sugar maple leaf decorating the obverse of this piece really pops when struck with .9999 pure gold. The Queen’s face rests on the reverse side, reminding collectors of Canada’s close relationship with the Royal Family and its monarch.
- .9999 pure gold.
- Backed by the Canadian government (face value: $5 CAD)
- Reverse depiction: The classic Canadian sugar maple leaf.

More than just a stereotype, the sugar maple has become a renowned symbol for the country of Canada, as well as its diverse people. Though it’s hard to pinpoint the precise origins of its identification with Canada, we do know that early settlers of the country made the maple trees one of their main sources of food. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the Canadian maple leaf took off as an official symbol; it was eventually integrated into the country’s flag, as well as its coins.
Collectors all over the world eagerly anticipate the annual release of the Canadian Gold Maple, and the 1/10 Oz variation continues to grow in popularity as more investors turn to fractional denominations of gold to hold liquid value.
The reverse side of the 2021 1/10 Oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin depicts, unsurprisingly, the recognizable maple leaf. In addition to the intricately detailed leaf itself, this side of the coin includes inscriptions for the country of origin, as well as the denomination, bullion makeup, and the purity.
What Royal Canadian Mint coin is complete without the image of Queen Elizabeth II? The monarch’s likeness on the obverse side reminds collectors that the coin is backed by the Canadian government and supported by the royal family itself. In addition to her name (Elizabeth II), the coin’s face value of 5 dollars and year of minting are shown. Susanna Blunt’s portrait of the Queen depicts her in her most elegant form, with a string of pearls and a set of earrings.
This 2021 1/10 Oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin remains an excellent way for collectors to show their appreciation for the history and culture of Canada. With its low weight of extremely pure gold, this particular variation of the coin is a great opportunity for collectors to expand their collection with a beautiful piece of high value and relatively high liquidity.
