On the reverse of 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins, you’ll find the image of the sugar maple leaf. Designed in 1979 by Walter Ott, this beautiful symbol of the nation continues to feature on the coins to this day. Gold Maple Leafs issued after 2014 have radial lines in the background, and since that same year also feature micro laser-engraved maple leaf privy marks.
The obverse of Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The Gold Maple Leaf has been available as a 1 oz specimen since 1979, meaning that one of three designs is available. These include the second-generation design used from 1979-1989 in this series, the third-generation design from Dora de Pedery-Hunt used from 1990-2002, or the latest design from Susanna Blunt in use since 2003.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. It was founded in 1908 to help refine gold and silver discovered in the Yukon Territories in the late 19th century and provide the nation with independent coining abilities. Today it consists of the Ottawa Mint and Winnipeg Mint facilities.
