2019 Marks 40th Anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf
The Royal Canadian Mint is celebrating 40 years of the Gold Maple Leaf coin with special features on the 2019 release. This classic design with a new twist is limited to only 15,000 coins and can be ordered now at APMEX.
In 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced a 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin with the intent of competing with the incredibly popular Gold Krugerrand from South Africa. Almost instantly, these Canadian coins became a hit and now, in 2019, the iconic series celebrates its 40th anniversary with a special issue.
The classic design of the Canadian Maple Leaf has remained the same since its inception. The obverse of each coin depicts the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse showcases the signature maple leaf so closely associated with Canadian patriotism and pride. On these anniversary editions, the maple leaf is intertwined with a large "40" in the center of the coin. The contrasting finishes make for a beautiful design with elegant detail.
In addition to the single coin, the 40th Anniversary Gold Maple Leaf can also be found in MintDirect® packaging, which is exclusive to APMEX and is perfect for those who demand a bit more security for their Gold purchase.
The 40th Anniversary 1 oz Gold Maples are produced with a limited mintage of just 15,000 coins, making them even more highly collectible than just their unique design demands. Order this celebratory Gold coin today before they are gone forever.
