Special features:
•   A great story from the Second World War that shows the support and goodwill role that Canada played.
•   Beautiful design illustrates the major gold exporters to Canada during the war as well as the routes taken by the gold from northern Europe to Canada, all overlaid by a symbolic maple leaf representing both the Canadian sugar maple and the Norwegian maple.

About the Design:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel presents the route taken by the Norwegian gold to Canada by way of England. This coin's symbolically rich reverse design is layered over a stylized map showing northern Europe, the Atlantic, and eastern Canada. Four stars mark strategic regions of gold movement from Europe to Canada during the war, including Norway, England, France, and Canada. Engraved over the map is a maple leaf whose left side is from a Canadian sugar maple and whose right side is from a Norway maple. The reverse is also engraved with the bilingual commemorative text "THE ALLIED GOLD/L'OR DES ALLIÉS" and "75 YEARS/ANS" and the word "CANADA."  

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box.

    Comments about 1/4 oz. Pure Gold Coin - Allied Gold - Mintage: 1500 (2015):

    I normally do not buy 1/4 oz gold bullion coins, but I could no resist this amazing coin. The design and craftsmanship = art and currency...its not always about 1oz bullion and above. I'm proud to have this in my bullion collection.
