.10 oz. Royal Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin


The Royal Canadian Mint is known throughout the world for its high standards of quality and purity in all its coin and medal products. The beautiful Maple Leaf design was first minted in 1979.

Each 2021 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin in this product listing comes packaged either individually or in multiples of 40. When buying multiples of 40 coins, the specimens arrive in the sealed plastic sheets as packaged by the Royal Canadian Mint. Individual coins will ship in protective plastic flips. All coins are in Brilliant Un-circulated condition.

In 2013 and 2015, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced new security features to the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Series. These features included a laser micro-engraved maple leaf privy mark used only on the 1 oz gold coin, and a series of radial lines on the background field of the obverse and reverse. The latter was introduced in 2015 and is available on all weights in the series.

The obverse side of 2021 .10 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins includes a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in the fourth-generation effigy used on Canadian coins during her reign. Created by Susanna Blunt, the design was introduced in 2003 by the Royal Canadian Mint and came to the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin in 2005. It is the second portrait ever created by a Canadian artist for national currency and the first during her reign to lack a crown on the head of the queen.

On the reverse face of the 2021 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is an image of the sugar maple leaf. The most populous species of maple tree in North America, the sugar maple has been an icon of Canada since the earliest European villages and trade outposts were established by French and British citizens immigrating to the New World.

All 2021 One-ounce 99.99% pure Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins include enhanced security features: precise radial lines, a micro-engraved maple leaf, and BULLION DNATM Anti-Counterfeiting Technology. A nice coin for first-time precious metal buyers and long-term investors.
