.50 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. A single maple leaf adorns the reverse of this beautiful one troy ounce .9999 fine gold coin while the obverse bears the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Collectors and investors alike purchase this coin not only for its beauty but also for the extraordinary purity and quality that is necessary to meet the standards of the Royal Canadian Mint.

Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins debuted in 1979. That year featured only a 1 oz gold coin with .999 purity. From 1979 to November 1982, that was the only available option for investors in this gold bullion collection. When the series first expanded in 1982, the options introduced at that point included 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins. It wasn’t until 1986 that the 1/2 oz gold coin was added to the series.

All of these 2021 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are available from the Royal Canadian Mint inside of sealed sheets of 10 coins or individual specimens arrive in protective plastic flips.

On the obverse side of 2021 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins, you will find the right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in a design created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt and introduced in 2005 in this coin series. Her Majesty is shown with no crown on her head, a first during her reign as the Queen of England and head of the Commonwealth.

The reverse face of 2021 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins features a depiction of the sugar maple leaf. The maple leaf has long been an emblem for Canada from its days as a French colonial trade outpost to British colonization and Canadian independence. This sugar maple leaf design was created in 1979 by Walter Ott.

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.

The typical gold bullion coin program offered these days features at least 1 oz gold coin and three fractional ounce coins. The Royal Canadian Mints Gold Maple Leafs have all four of those coin weights available each year, including the ever popular 1/2 oz gold coin.
