One of the earliest releases in the history of the Canadian Maple Leaf 1 oz Gold Coin Series remains one of the highest minted in the collection. During the mid-1980s, the Royal Canadian Mint saw some of its highest mintages, with three dates from the mid-1980s registering three of the five highest mintages in program history. Right now, you can buy 1985 Canadian Maple Leaf 1 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 1985 Canadian Maple Leaf 1 oz Gold Coin in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a coin that is in a protective plastic flip. With a mintage of 1,747,000 coins, the 1985 Canadian Maple Leaf has one of the highest mintage the series has ever reached.
Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 1985 Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coins. The Queen has reigned over the United Kingdom since 1952 and her portrait is regularly updated on coins across the Commonwealth. The image of Queen Elizabeth II has been updated four times on Canadian coins, with the 1985 coin boasting the second-generation effigy of the Queen. Created in 1964 by Arnold Machin, this right-profile portrait of the Queen was used on Canadian coins from 1965 to 1989. Inscriptions on this side include ELIZABETH II, 1985, and 50 DOLLARS.
In the reverse design of the 1985 Maple Leaf 1 oz Gold Coin, the design element features a large sugar maple leaf. The national emblem of Canada, this sugar maple leaf is accompanied by inscriptions of CANADA, 9999, FINE GOLD, and 1 OZ OR PUR.
Since 1979, Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coins have been available to investors each year. From 1979 to November 1982, the series offered only a 1 oz gold option with .999 fineness. Starting in November 1982, the fineness of the coins was enhanced to .9999 and a series of fractional-ounce coins later joined the series. The 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins were introduced first, followed by 1/2 oz, 1/20 oz, and 1 Gram gold coins, in order.
