Maple leaves of all sizes possess the rare ability to stir powerful feelings of pride in Canadians. This iconic emblem of Canada takes centre stage in this 2018 .99999 pure gold fractional set—the first of its kind—that stands as a superbly crafted tribute to a timeless symbol of the land and its people. Mintage is limited to 600 sets. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

All four coins share the same inspiring reverse design by Canadian artist Caren Heine. In the foreground, a slightly stylized sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaf anchors the design and is positioned centrally, much like the 11-pointed maple leaf at the centre of Canada’s national flag. Detailed engraving re-creates the deeply cut veins that run through each of the leaf’s five lobes, as they do in the two larger maple leaves that flank it on both sides. The reverse proof finish heightens the brilliance of this splayed arrangement of traditionally engraved leaves; but a closer look at the field on both the reverse and obverse reveals a uniquely patterned backdrop consisting of laser-engraved maple leaves, which add contemporary flair to this classic design. The word “CANADA” and the year “2018” are struck incuse on each coin’s reverse, along with the purity and weight. Each obverse includes the coin’s face value and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth by Susanna Blunt.

With a very limited mintage, a history of selling out quickly, and the added prestige of .99999 pure gold—the highest purity level in the world—this is a rare collecting opportunity that is not to be missed!
