In this JM Bullion listing you can purchase a 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf available from random years of issue. The Gold Maple Leaf debuted in 1979 and has been struck as a gold bullion coin in every year since that date. These coins are available with abrasions present on the coin’s design elements or surfaces.
An abrasion on a coin is defined as flaws resulting from light rubbing or scuffing, such as from the friction when one coin comes in contact with another or another object. Abrasions can also result from a coin sliding around inside an improper holder or coin drawer, and these types of flaws are typically found on the high parts of the coin and in the open fields of the background.
JM Bullion guarantees you a 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin through this purchase listing, but we cannot guarantee the year of issue you’ll receive. Our warehouse team will select your coin based on availability in stock when your order is processed for shipment. The year of issue will determine purity of the gold, with 1979-1982 Gold Maple Leafs featuring .999 pure gold and all coins struck from November 1982 onward have .9999 pure gold content.
The obverse of 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coins features one of three different effigies of Queen Elizabeth II. The depiction of a 39-year-old Queen Elizabeth II features on coins from 1979 to 1989, which was created by Arnold Machin in 1965. Coins issued from 1990 to 2003 in the Gold Maple Leaf range include the third-generation effigy of Elizabeth II from Dora de Pedery-Hunt. Coins issued from 2004 onward feature Susanna Blunt’s fourth-generation portrait.
On the reverse of 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins is the sugar maple leaf design. Created in 1979 by Walter Ott for the first Gold Maple Leafs, this design continues in use today on the reverse of all Canadian Maple Leaf coins.
