The Maple Leaf represents strength, unity, and peace. Its importance for Canadians dates back to precolonial times when the indigenous people of North America used the Maple Tree as an important source of food. This was later incorporated by settlers who upon arriving in Canada were not accustomed to the harsh winter climates and scarce food availability. The Maple Leaf evolved to have a strong historical context of both survival and connectivity to the local indigenous people. It has since been featured on coins and flags including the modern Canadian flag established in 1965.
The new 2020 Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin is one of the most internationally popular 24-carat gold coins. In terms of sales volumes, it is one of the most sold coins currently minted by a government. Its unique feature of the iconic Maple Leaf paired with a profile image of Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse makes this coin instantly recognizable.
The coin contains 1/2 troy ounce of pure .9999 24 carat gold. It can be used as legal tender, is VAT free, and has a face value of 20 CAD. This coin represents an excellent purchase for investors and collectors due to the coin's popularity and the economic stability of gold.
