The history of 1980 Gold Canadian coins

These 1 oz Gold coins feature a portrait that was designed by Arnold Machin in 1965, with the Queen wearing a flowing garment, and a tiara that was given to her by her grandmother, Queen Mary. Canadian coins featured the Machin portrait until 1989, a portrait that was also featured on British currency. The Canadian Maple Leaf was not produced until 1979, but Canadian currency featured an earlier portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that it shared with Great Britain, which was designed by sculptor Mary Gillick.

At the same time production may have been lagging, there has been an increase in demand for Gold coins and other Gold products from people around the world. Many Gold investors buy Canadian Maple Leafs because they believe the price of Gold will continue to increase due to demand from emerging markets like India and China where Gold is culturally important.
