The 2021 ¼ Oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin is a brand new release and the latest in the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf series. Since 1979, this series has been a popular annual release by the historic Canadian Royal Mint. The ¼ Ounce series is particularly popular; some collectors consider the fractional denomination to be the perfect way to expand their collection while maintaining high liquidity. This is especially important, considering the high value of gold; having to sell off a more expensive 1 or 2 Oz model can be troubling.
As far as designs go, the Canadian Gold Maple is a stunning addition to any collection or safe. Its textured sugar maple leaf decorates the reverse side, while Susanna Blunt’s iconic 2001 depiction of Queen Elizabeth II makes an appearance on the obverse. Both images paint a beautiful picture of both the government and historical culture of Canada and its peoples. The .9999 pure gold the coin is struck with really makes the intricate detail of both designs pop.
- .9999 pure gold.
- Value backed by Canadian government (face value: $20 CAD).

Is there anything more undeniably Canadian than the sugar maple leaf? The design is featured on everything from Canadian clothing to the country’s simple flag itself. The history behind this icon is extensive. Native inhabitants of Canada are thought to have relied heavily on the sugar maple trees native to the country in order to sustain themselves. When colonists arrived and settled in Canada, the export of maple syrup and other products from the tree were also an essential part of their economics and culture.
This coin features a rendition of the maple leaf by artist Walter Ott. Since its debut in 1979, the use of this design has remained consistent on the obverse of the coin. Ott’s artistic depiction of the sugar maple leaf has long held a special place in the hearts of collectors, and it certainly retains important meaning for the people of Canada. This side of the coin also includes inscriptions representing the weight, material (gold), and “Canada.”
The reverse of the 2021 ¼ Oz Gold Maple is a newer design, but an old concept. Queen Elizabeth II is featured, as depicted by Susanna Blunt in art commissioned by the British Royal Mint in 2003.
