The 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin is the signature bullion coin of Canada. Issued by the highly acclaimed Royal Canadian Mint the coin has the same designer as the Krugerrand. In fact, the 1oz Gold Maple was introduced in 1979 specifically to compete with the Krugerrand on the emerging world bullion market.
The 2021 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf is a world leader and one of the purest bullion coins available today. From 1979 until 1982, the 1oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf was struck from .999 pure gold. At the end of 1982, the mint increased the millesimal fineness of these ground-breaking gold bullion coins to .9999 (24 carat).
Like other classic gold bullion coins such as the Gold Britannia, the Vienna Philharmonic and, of course, the Krugerrand, the Gold Maple doesn’t change its design features from year to year.
The obverse of the 2021 Gold 1 oz coin carries the portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II. Its reverse is adorned by a magical depiction of the sugar maple leaf.
In 2013, a small laser etched maple leaf security detail was added beneath the larger motif on the coin’s reverse. A background of light refracting lines was introduced in 2015 to both sides to reduce the risk of counterfeiting.
The 2021 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf is a must for serious investors and collectors. The coin’s 99.99 purity means that it is softer than alloy coins like the Krugerrand. Protect yours with specially designed display cases from coininvest.
