While the 1 oz Canadian Maple Leaf Coin may be the most popular, the 2023 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin, struck in .9999 fine gold, is very popular as well and equally as gorgeous. Investors and collectors alike love these coins.  This coin shows why the Canadian Maple Leaf coin is one of the longest-running gold bullion series in the world. 


Key features:

  • Made with 1/2 troy oz of .9999 pure gold BU grade
  • Face value of $20 Canadian dollars back by the Canadian government.
  • Obverse side has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth engraved with  ‘Elizabeth II’ ‘20 dollars’ ‘2023’
  • Reverse side has a large maple leaf engraved with ‘Canada’ ‘9999’ ‘Fine gold’ ‘1/2 oz OR Pur’
  • Micro-laser engraved features.


On the obverse of this coin is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Past coins over the years feature the queen at different times in her life. This portrait, by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt, depicts her at age 79. As is the tradition in this series, the queen is shown here facing right.  The queen looks a little more casual here dressed in a simple dress and pearls. Despite the more simple attire, she still looks regal with a confident look on her face. On her right shoulder is ‘SB’ for Susanna Blunt..  Above the queen is written ‘Elizabeth II’. Below her portrait is ‘20 Dollars 2023’. 


Walter Ott’s highly detailed design of a sugar maple leaf adorns the reverse side of this coin.  The sugar maple leaf is an icon to Canada and is seen nearly everywhere. The red leaf is in their flag, used by their military, and is included in their legal tender.  The leaf isn’t just a symbol, it has proven very important in Canadian history. The aboriginal people used it as food and the early English settlers used it as an easy source of sugar.  Above the leaf is written ‘Canada’. To the right and left of the leaf is ‘9999’ referring to the purity of the gold, .9999. At the bottom of the coin are ‘Fine Gold’ and ‘1 oz OR Pur’. When looked at under a microscope, the small maple leaf on the coin has a ‘23’. This is an anti-counterfeiting measure. 


When the Royal Canadian Mint started in 1908 they couldn’t have foreseen how bright their future would be. They added a refinery in 1911 and improved their methods year after year. By 1969 they were making .9999 fine gold bars. In 1982 they shocked the world by making a .9999 bullion coin. In 2007 they did it again when they minted the largest coin in the world made from 99.999% fine gold worth $1 million. There is no question that the Royal Canadian Mint makes great coins. Today, one only has to look at the beautiful luster and intricate design of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and they can see what incredible work this mint does.
