The Gold Maple Leaf
The Canadian gold maple leaf is the official bullion gold coin of Canada and is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. It is one of the purest gold coins of regular issue in the world, with a gold content of .9999 millesimal fineness (24 karat). That is, it contains virtually no base metals at all - only gold exclusively mined in Canada. This hallmark made it one of the most popular and highly traded bullion coins in the world.
The design for the gold maple leaf blends elements from Canada's proud heritage. The obverse, featuring the bust of Queen Elizabeth II, serves as a tribute to Canada's centuries old affiliation with Great Britain. The reverse depicts the national symbol of Canada, the maple leaf.
