The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is, without question, one of the most popular gold coins for sale in the world right now. Introduced in 1979 as just the second gold bullion coin for private investors behind the South African Gold Krugerrand, in 1982 the Maple Leaf became the first-ever 24-karat gold coin in the market when its content was boosted from .999 to .9999 purity.

While the sugar maple leaf has featured on the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf series of bullion coins since 1979, it has never been seen its truest form on a bullion coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. That is, until 2016 and the release of these Nature’s Purest Form coins. The RCM released a limited quantity of Canadian Gold Maple Leafs in 2016 that took on the actual shape of a leaf, rather than using the traditional round coin blank.
All of the 2016 $200 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Nature’s Purest Form Coins in this product listing come to you with a protective coin capsule and have the original Certificate of Authenticity from the Royal Canadian Mint available as well. The capsule is unique in that it is custom-fitted to the coin and takes on the exact same shape of the maple leaf.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of each of the 2016 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Nature’s Purest Form coins. Her Majesty is depicted in the same right-profile bust used on all Canadian denominations, along with inscriptions of the nation of issue, her name, and the phrase “D.G. Regina.”
As you look at the reverse side of the 2016 $200 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Nature’s Purest Form Coin, you will find only the inscriptions of the coin’s face value in Canadian Dollars and the date of issue for the release.
These coins are proof specimens with impressive frosted design elements contrasting against mirrored surfaces. More impressive still is the 3D detail of the striations in the leaf and the sugar maple-leaf shape of the coin.
