Description

This four-piece pure gold coin set is an exceptional tribute to the 40th anniversary of its bullion Gold Maple Leaf counterpart first issued in 1979. While this collector Maple Leaf coin set and the bullion coins share a number of design elements that evoke the Maple LeafÕs reputation as a symbol of excellence, beauty, purity and innovation, this set carries a unique design with a coloured highlight coin, and is struck with an extremely limited mintage of just 600. Denominations include a one ounce $50 coin, a quarter ounce $10 coin, a one tenth ounce $5 coin and a one twentieth ounce $1 coin. HST/GST exempt.

All four coins are 99.99% pure gold and share the same reverse design by Canadian artist Nathalie LagacŽ. Presented in the style of botanical art, three different sizes of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves are gently overlapped to ensure an unobstructed view of the finely engraved details, which dazzle in a reverse-proof finish. The privy mark Ò40 YEARS Ð ANSÓ is struck on each reverse, along with the double dates Ò1979Ó and Ò2019Ó to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf (GML).

On the 1 oz. coin, the celebration extends beyond the reverse thanks to edge lettering, which reads Ò05.09.79Ó for September 5, 1979, the day the Gold Maple Leaf (GML) was officially released to the world. The reverse also includes a colourful, innovative twist that sets this large coin apart: translucent enamel (a first for a gold coin), which adds a beautiful green hue to the leaves.

As seen on the first Gold Maple Leaf (GML) issued in 1979, each obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth by Arnold Machin.
