Description

Why does this Brilliant Uncirculated 2023 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf 1 oz. bullion coin belong in your collection of precious metal treasures?

The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is one of the most recognized and avidly collected bullion coin series in the world. Featuring exquisitely detailed, patriotic maple leaf imagery, the series has been an annually issued product of the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) since its introduction more than four decades ago, in 1979. In 2013, a micro-engraved dated maple leaf shaped security mark and radial textured fields were integrated into the coin’s design for increased security. The 2023 Gold Maple Leaf also features a transitional obverse of Queen Elizabeth II that will be used until the Canadian effigy of King Charles III is approved by Buckingham Palace, meaning 2023 is very likely the last year the Queen will appear on Maple Leaf coinage.

  • This 2023 Maple Leaf bullion coin is crafted from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold.
  • The $50 denomination legal tender coin of Canada measures 30 mm in diameter.
  • The coin’s design includes two distinctive security features.
  • The coin is minted with a gorgeous brilliant uncirculated finish.

The Elegant Beauty of the Canadian Maple Leaf Design

Obverse: Centered on the obverse is the right facing effigy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by acclaimed Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt in 2003. This iconic effigy has been updated in 2023 to honor the Queen’s long reign. The years that Her Late Majesty sat on the throne, “1952-2022,” have been included to the left of her profile. The lifelike interpretation of the monarch is contrasted against a radial lined field containing the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II” and “50 DOLLARS 2023.”

Reverse: A meticulously detailed sugar maple leaf appears on the reverse, with a micro-engraved maple leaf security mark located beside its stem bearing the two digit date of issue as “23.” Inscriptions surrounding the national emblem include “CANADA” and “FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR,” with “9999” flanking the leaf. The classic maple leaf design was created by the late Walter Ott (1920-2020), the RCM’s Chief Engraver and Director of Art at the time of the series’ inception.
