An affordable opportunity to own a beautiful gold coin!

Since it was first raised in 1965, the National Flag of Canada has come to symbolize many of the values and opportunities that have defined Canada and its people!

To Canadians at home and abroad, the red maple leaf unites us and instills a sense of belonging regardless of our different cultures, languages and beliefs. The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the National Flag of Canada's 50th anniversary with a gold coin that pays tribute to our national symbol: the maple leaf.

The flag of Canada beautifully engraved in pure gold, an ideal gift for Canadians or anyone wanting Canadian memorabilia. Order your coin today!

Special features:
•     This small, affordable gold coin allows collectors to celebrate their pride for their country on the 50th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada.
•     Struck in 99.99% pure gold, this is the 13th in the Royal Canadian Mint's annual 1/25th oz. gold coin series.
•     Highly detailed engraving on this remarkably small-sized coin is testament to the artistry and craftsmanship for which the Royal Canadian Mint is internationally renowned.
•     From its delicate veins to the small creases and textures, meticulous engraving gives the maple leaf a life-like appearance that is further enhanced by the use of multiple finishing techniques.
•     GST/HST exempt.

Design:
The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc draws its inspiration from Canada's national flag, which is seen in the background as it flutters in the wind. From its centre emerges a sugar maple leaf, which served as the original inspiration for the flag's stylized centrepiece. Finely detailed engraving recreates the leaf's five veined lobes and creates a natural, life-like appearance, which is further enhanced by the use of multiple finishing techniques.

Did you know…
•     The adoption of a national flag was proposed as far back as the late nineteenth century, but to no avail—that is, until the idea was raised again in 1964 by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson.
•     After much divisive debate, the National Flag of Canada was approved by Parliament in 1964. At the stroke of noon on February 15, 1965, the Canadian Red Ensign (Canada's previous flag) was lowered on Parliament Hill and replaced by the National Flag of Canada!
•     The official way to describe the flag is by explaining it as a red flag with a white square in its centre, which is adorned with a red maple leaf.
•     The design is symmetrical—if you fold the flag from one red edge to the other, both halves should be the same!

Although often assumed to be a sugar maple leaf because of its colour, the leaf on the flag is in fact a stylized leaf intended to represent the several species of maple that grow throughout Canada. Now, in a unique twist, the leaf is featured in a design that is inspired by the flag! The sugar maple leaf is depicted emerging from a fluttering flag to fill the centre of the image field. Finely detailed engraving recreates the leaf's veined lobes to give the leaf a natural, life-like appearance that celebrates both the flag and the national symbol!

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

Why is this not in 1/4 oz or Bigger

1

The mint has really missed the boat this year. This is the 50th anniversary of the flag and their offerings are not impressive. The quality of the coin is good but the size is appalling. The offerings in gold coins for this celebration has really missed the mark. There really is nothing in a 1/4 oz or 1/2 oz size that would look good and still be affordable, and the year is almost over! These coins are also costly compared to other mint offerings and their prices are pretty high as well. Really disappointed about this.

Although there is a tendency to overdo the flag anniversary, this is till a nice design with the Maple Leaf seeming to have a 3-D effect against the flag. It's still a good deal for gold coin collectors.
