A WORLD'S FIRST! Our first pure gold maple leaf shaped coin!

The coin's unusual design recreates the familiar shape of a maple leaf—specifically that of a sugar maple (Acer saccharum). Its unique outline showcases some of this maple leaf's defining characteristics, such as the wavy nature of the leaf's edge and the curved sinuses between its palmate lobes. Intricate detailing on the reverse gives it a life-like quality, with engraved veins running through the three upper lobes and the two smaller basal lobes.

A gorgeous gold maple leaf, you will want to show to friends and family again and again! Order today!

    The coin had fallen out of the capsule during transit and was marked. The case is a poor wood imitation. Not the best product the Mint has produced. Too bad about the Queen's effigy that looks awful. Sorry I bought it.

    Comments about 1 oz. Pure Gold Coin – Maple Leaf Silhouette – Mintage: 800 (2016):

    The coin itself looks nice and the box presentation is good, but the actual plastic holder for the coin was open when I first opened the box. It seems like this is a common problem since there's so many reviews that say the same. I didn't have time too look at it in detail as I just got it this morning, I'm going to carefully look at it and see if there's any damage from it coming out during shipping to decide if I'm going to keep it. If you're thinking about buying it.....I'm not sure, it's a very nice and unique coin but also has a very high premium. I suppose value wise time will tell if the price of the coin goes up, I just couldn't say.

      Hopefully gold goes to $2,799.99/oz or you've wasted your money on the current premium.

        Beautiful piece, makes a great addition to any pm investment portfolio. Low mintage, first coin of its kind, amazing quality, and sure to rapidly increase in value. If I had to find fault it would be that it is not offered in five "9"'s purity. 10 out of 10

        This coin for some reason lacked the usual detail that the mint strives for.

        When i opened it the coin was not in place and the plastic coin casing was apart and should have been sealed together at the mint with the RCM seal.
        Otherwise liked it very much.
