Gold Maple Leaf Series
The Gold Maple Leaf was first introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979, and it was the world's first pure gold bullion coin. The idea behind the creation of the coin was to provide investors with a high-purity gold coin that would be a reliable store of value.
The design of the coin was inspired by Canada's national symbol, the maple leaf. The designer of the coin, Walter Ott, wanted to create a design that was both simple and elegant, and that would highlight the natural beauty of the maple leaf.
The obverse (front) of the coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II, who has appeared on Canadian coins since her coronation in 1953. The design of the obverse has also been updated over the years to reflect the Queen's aging process.
The reverse (back) of the coin features a stylized image of a single maple leaf, with the word "CANADA" above and the weight and purity of the gold below. The design has remained largely unchanged since the coin was first introduced, though the Royal Canadian Mint has made a few minor updates over the years, including the addition of security features like radial lines and micro-engraved maple leaves.
Overall, the Gold Maple Leaf coin is a popular choice for investors and collectors alike, thanks to its purity, beautiful design, and high level of security.

History of the Royal Canadian Mint
The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) was founded in 1908, when the Canadian government decided to establish a national mint to produce coins for circulation. Prior to that, Canadian coins were minted in Britain and other countries.
The original RCM facility was located in Ottawa, Ontario, and it produced its first coins in 1908. At that time, the mint primarily produced circulation coins for Canada and other countries, as well as commemorative medals and tokens.
Over the years, the RCM has expanded its operations and introduced new products, including bullion coins like the Gold Maple Leaf and the Silver Maple Leaf. The mint has also introduced new technologies and security features to improve the quality and authenticity of its coins.
In addition to its headquarters in Ottawa, the RCM operates a second facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba, which primarily produces circulation coins for Canada.
Today, the RCM is a respected and highly regarded mint with a global reputation for quality and innovation. The mint produces a wide range of coins and other products for collectors and investors, and it is recognized as a leader in the field of precious metals refining and minting.
