Description

First ever pure gold (contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Gold in a Proof finish) maple leaf shaped coin.

Strikingly beautiful with its distinctive shape, the maple leaf is known the world over as the national emblem of Canada and has been associated with the Canadian experience for over 300 years.

The coin is the product of an exacting manufacturing process, which includes the use of specialized equipment to shape the dies and the laborious task of controlling the gold to ensure uniformity.

Comes encapsulated in a custom wooden case.

Obverse

The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears in the middle of the leaf.

Dei Gratia Regina (often abbreviated to D. G. Regina and seen as D·G·REGINA) is a Latin title meaning By the Grace of God, Queen.

Artist: Susanna Blunt.

Reverse

The coin’s unusual design recreates the familiar shape of a maple leaf, specifically that of a sugar maple. Its unique outline showcases some of this maple leaf’s defining characteristics, such as the wavy nature of the leaf’s edge and the curved sinuses between its palmate lobes. Intricate detailing on the reverse gives it a life-like quality, with engraved veins running through the three upper lobes and the two smaller basal lobes.
