The Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Gold Maple Leaf series in 1979. At this point in history, only the South African Gold Krugerrand was available to investors as a gold bullion coin. A growing Western economic boycott against South Africa as retaliation for its continued apartheid policies led to mints across the Western world introducing their own gold bullion coins.
In the first issue year, Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins were available only as 1 oz gold coins with .999 pure gold content. By November 1982, the series got its first expansion and saw a boost in purity to 24-karat .9999 pure gold. That continues today and the RCM has added weights to the series in the decades since to attract investors at all levels.
On the obverse of 2020 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins, you will find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation bust of the Queen on Canadian coinage and was designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt.
The reverse face of 2020 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins features the sugar maple leaf. This design was created for the Gold Maple Leaf in 1979 by Walter Ott and is a staple of the series. It has proven so iconic that the mint uses it as the reverse design of the silver, platinum, and palladium versions of the Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coins.
