The Gold Maple Leaf is the official bullion coin of Canada, first issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979. At the time of the coin's introduction, the only other bullion coin in production was the Krugerrand, which was not widely available due to the economic boycott of Apartheid-era South Africa. From 1979 to 1982, the Gold Maple Leaf had a fineness of .999, but this was raised in 1982 to .9999, making it one of the purest gold bullion coins in the world. Special edition coins have an even finer purity level of .99999, which makes them a highly valuable and collectable asset for bullion investors. This Gold Maple Leaf 1oz Coin depicts Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse side and the Canadian maple leaf on the reverse, symbolising its continued relationship with the United Kingdom.
