Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins debuted with only a 1 oz option in 1979. From 1979 to late 1982, the Gold Maple Leaf contained .999 pure gold content and was available in just this one weight. Starting in November 1982, the coins were struck with .9999 pure gold content instead. That same year saw the introduction of 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins. Later additions included the 1/2 oz coin in 1986, the 1/20 oz coin in 1993, and the 1 Gram coin in 2014.
On the obverse of all 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys portrait has been updated three times during the Canadian Gold Maple Leafs lifetime. Coins issued from 1979 to 1989 have Arnold Machins portrait of Elizabeth II at the age of 39. From 1990 to 2004, the coins featured Dora de Pedery-Hunts portrait of the Queen at the age of 64. All coins dated 2005 and later have Susanna Blunts fourth-generation image of the Queen at the age of 79.
The reverse of Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins features the same design each year. The sugar maple leaf, Canadas official symbol, appears on this side in the design Walter Ott created in 1979.
These 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins are available to you in Mint State 69 condition. Coins with this grade have full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detracting flaws. The only acceptable flaws at this level are minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
