Like many of the Royal Canadian Mint’s bullion products, the Gold Maple Leaf’s obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. There have been two different portraits of Her Majesty used on the 1/20th ounce gold coin, so the particular design you receive may vary based on the year of issue. As these coins are largely sourced from the secondary market, the dates and designs of this product may or may not include a variety.
The reverse features Canada’s iconic national symbol of the maple leaf. You’ll also find inscriptions of the coin’s purity and weight.
The first Gold Maple Leaf was issued in 1979, making it the world’s first pure 24k gold bullion coin. At that time, the only widely available gold coin was the 22k South African Krugerrand. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf continues to be among the world’s purest gold coins regularly issued by a sovereign mint. Gold Maples issued between 1979 and 1982 had a purity of .999.
Individual coins will ship in a plastic flip. Multiples may come in mint-sealed plastic sheets or tubes, depending on inventory.

" I just love the 1/20 oz gold maple leaf Provident's sent me. This was my second time buying gold and my first time buying gold from provident. I'm so happy with what they sent that I will be buying more "Baby Gold" very soon, Thanks!"

" I have contemplated buying from Provident Metals in the past, but the main reason I never did was because of the state sales tax I would incur since I am a fellow Texan. Well, our legislatures were kind enough to lift this tax as of October 1, 2013. For my first purchase, I went with two 1/20 ounce Gold Maple Leaves. I am very happy with them. They came in mint plastic, and weighed and measured out correctly. I do put these little guys in air-tite capsules with the black gaskets. They can be very easy to misplace and I like them in the capsules. I suggest if you ever get any and have a cold, don?t sneeze around them. The whole transaction went as described and I will be doing more business with provident in the future. Thanks "
