Struck from 1/10 troy oz of .9999 fine gold, the 2014 1/10 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf bears the same classic design as the larger Maple Leaf coins. At 16 mm in diameter, this attractive bullion coin makes it easy to get into gold. As legal tender of Canada, the weight and 99.99% purity is guaranteed by the Canadian government.
The obverse features the Susanna Blunt image of Queen Elizabeth II, with the denomination of $5 and mintage date of 2014 inscribed below. The reverse features the emblematic Maple Leaf of Canada, flanked on either side by the coin's purity. Inscribed above and below is "CANADA" and "FINE GOLD 1/10 OZ OR PUR" respectively.
The Royal Canadian Mint first produced 24k investment-grade gold bullion coins in 1979. The maple leaf has been used as the image of Canada since the 1700s and it was chosen for the first national flag in 1965. It was only natural to include it on the nation's official gold bullion coin. The 2014 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is a great introduction to this famous series. Add it to your collection today.
