Why buy this $20 Canada 2019 1/2 oz Gold Maple Leaf?
This half ounce Gold Maple Leaf is part of the fortieth anniversary issue of the bullion series, which has earned its place among the world's most popular bullion series. The coin has long been a favorite due to its beauty, but the radial lines security feature that was introduced in 2013 made this series especially popular among collectors who are concerned about security. The lines make the coin almost impossible to counterfeit. This coin, which is in the same condition that it was when it left the mint, GEM Brilliant Uncirculated, was struck from half an ounce of .9999 fine gold at the Royal Canadian Mint.
Brilliant Silver Maple Leaf Design
Susanna Blunt's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II returns yet again to grace the obverse of the Gold Maple Leaf. The monarch's shoulders are open to the holder, and she wears earrings and a necklace. While honoring the Queen's important relationship with Canada, Blunt's design strikes a note of independence with the lack of a crown upon the head of state's head. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the top portion of the rim, while the face value of the coin, "20 DOLLARS 2019," fill the rim's lower half.
On the reverse is the stunning sugar maple leaf design that made this series famous. The design is remarkable for its simplicity in concept and intricacy in execution. Every aspect of the leaf is executed so finely that the holder could almost feel the autumn breeze on their face as they would if they picked up an identical leaf while hiking. The coin's issuing country, "CANADA," is noted at the top along the rim, while the purity, "9999," appears once on each side of the leaf. The bottom half of the rim bears the inscription "FINE GOLD 1/2 OZ OR PUR."
