Although the Royal Canadian Mint produces more than a million regular one ounce Maple Leaf fine gold bullion coins each year, just 500 of this unusual collector edition will be produced. While bullion coins are normally produced with a standard design and finish at the mint’s Ottawa facility, this is only the second time a fine gold collector edition has been produced at the mint’s facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The coin includes a “W” mint mark to highlight that the coin was struck in Winnipeg and features a unique burnished finish giving it a matte appearance. The background field includes straight lines meeting on an angle in the centre inspired by striking exterior of the mint’s Winnipeg facility. HST/GST exempt.

The reverse design for this coin reproduces Master Engraver Walter Ott’s maple leaf from the Mint’s original 1979 bullion coin. This design remains in use on all Royal Canadian Mint bullion coins to this day. The reverse also features a “W” mint mark to the left of the leaf stem, indicating that this numismatic coin was struck at the Winnipeg facility. The obverse includes the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
