Why Buy This GEM BU 2023 Canada $20 1/2 oz Gold Maple Leaf?
It was 1979 when the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) struck the very first Gold Maple Leaf coins. They were quick to become a favorite around the world and now they have been a top choice for decades. While 1 ounce gold coins are nice, the Royal Canadian Mint also offers the Gold Maple Leaf in several fractional sizes. This specimen was minted for 2023 and has a face value of $20. This 2023 issue features a transitional obverse design, which is Susanna Blunt's familiar effigy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, updated to include the dates of her long reign. This obverse will be used until Buckingham Palace approves a Canadian effigy of King Charles III. Whether this will occur later in 2023, or in 2024, remains to be seen. However, while the RCM has yet to release an official statement, it is likely that 2023 will be the final year the Queen appears on the Maple Leaf series.
- This 2023 Gold Maple Leaf is struck from 1/2 ounce of .9999 fine gold!
- Includes state of the art security features intended to help deter counterfeiting.
- This $20 CAD coin is a GEM BU specimen.
2023 Transitional Portrait
Obverse: The coin's date is on the obverse near the lower edge, along with the face value. Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is still depicted at the center of the design, this version was created by Susanna Blunt. However, this transitional design displays the years of Her Late Majesty's reign on the left with the dates "1952" and "2022." King Charles III is expected to appear next, but Buckingham Palace still needs to give approval for the new effigy. It is not known how long this transitional design will be in production, but it is very likely that 2023 is the final year Queen Elizabeth II will appear on the Gold Maple Leaf.
Reverse: The inscriptions on this side include the gold weight, purity, and "CANADA." The maple leaf design is on this side and it is impressively detailed. This side also features a small maple leaf that serves as a security mark intended to deter counterfeiting.
