The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin is one of the purest regular-issue gold coins in the world. It is the official gold coin of Canada and is minted with gold sourced exclusively from Canadian mines.
Since its introduction by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979 this annual series has featured a similar design, although some special issues include colour, privy marks or other flourishes. The globally-familiar Canadian maple leaf emblem is showcased on the reverse of this gold bullion coin and the obverse features the most recent official portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
These 1 g coins are MapleGrams broken into 1 g increments. New for 2016, all coins feature the same radial lines as larger gold maple leaf coins as a security feature.
Each coin is a 1 g Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and comes sealed in a tamper evident display card with a unique serial number and the weight and purity.
