The most famous Canadian Gold coins issued are the Canadian Maple Leaf Gold coins. The purity of their gold is hard to match, much less beat. They are considered to be one of the oldest gold bullion coins available today and are one of the best-selling gold coins. Many rate it as the premier product of the Royal Canadian Mint. Provident Metals is pleased to offer the 2011 Canadian Maple Leaf 1 oz Gold Coin available for purchase right now.
The Canadian Maple Leaf Gold coin is considered to be legal tender and is among the purest official gold bullion coins worldwide. As a result of the consistency of its design and its mintage, it is regarded as the standard by which other 24-karat gold bullion coins are rated.
The 2011 1 oz Maple Leaf Gold coin obverse features a profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Canadian artist Susanna Blunt created this particular design of Her Majesty in 2003. It is the first coin to show the Queen without her crown. Since 1952, when the Queen ascended to the throne, all Canadian coinage has featured some version of Queen Elizabeth II. Also on the obverse are ELIZABETH II and 50 DOLLARS 2011.
The 2011 1 oz Maple Leaf Gold coin reverse features the Maple Leaf, the unofficial emblem of Canada. Continuing basically unchanged since its creation in 1979, this Maple Leaf design was created by master engraver Walter Ott. For Canadians, the Maple Leaf is a symbol of pride and nationalism. Also on the reverse are CANADA, 9999, FINE GOLD, and 1 OZ OR PUR.
The Royal Canadian Mint issued the first Canadian Maple Leaf Gold coin in 1979, and it has been issued annually ever since. The purity of the gold of the first Maple Leaf Gold coins was 99.9%. The gold purity of the coins was increased to 99.99% by the RCM in 1983. With this, they became the first bullion coin to be of such high gold purity. But to ensure they could not be beaten, the gold purity of the coins was increased to 99.999% by the RCM in 2007. However, only special edition coins are minted at this purity level.
The Maple Leaf Gold coins issued by the RCM in 1979 were available only in the 1 oz denomination. In subsequent years, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/20 oz denominations were added and are still available today. In 1994, the RCM issued a 1/15 oz denomination Maple Leaf Gold coin, but due to lack of demand, this was the only year it was issued. In 2015, the RCM issued a 1/25 oz denomination Maple Leaf Gold coin to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Flag. Mintage of this coin was limited to just 7,500.
