First issued in 1979, our Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin remains one of our most sought-after products—one that is coveted by precious metal investors and cherished by collectors worldwide! Its maple leaf design has become synonymous with superior craftsmanship and incomparable beauty, all bathed in the rich gleam of the world's benchmark gold purity standard. This magnificent fractional set celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf (GML) with the addition of a privy mark on each coin's botanical art-inspired reverse. But the 1 oz. coin is truly a stand-out piece; it features crisp edge lettering and an inscription that commemorates the day the Gold Maple Leaf (GML) made its debut ("05.09.79"), while the first-time use of translucent enamel on 99.99% pure gold adds a captivating touch of summer-green colour to the reverse.

Continue your tradition of collecting pure gold fractional sets! Don't be disappointed, order yours today!

Special features:
  • A MINT FIRST: TRANSLUCENT ENAMEL ON GOLD! We're celebrating history by making history: the 1 oz. coin is our very first gold coin to feature translucent enamel, and it's only available as part of this set.
  • CELEBRATING 40 YEARS! All four coins in your fractional set (1 oz., 1/4 oz., 1/10 oz., 1/20 oz.) share a botanical art-inspired design that emphasizes the maple leaf's natural beauty. It's a classic design that transcends time—just like the iconic reverse of our Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin, which made its debut 40 years ago.
  • MARKING THE OCCASION! As a nod to the 40-year history of the Gold Maple Leaf (GML), each reverse is double-dated  ("1979 – 2019") and features a special privy mark.
  • EDGE LETTERING! The 1 oz. coin also features edge lettering that extends the milestone celebration beyond the reverse. The inscription reads "05.09.79"—the day our Gold Maple Leaf (GML) made its world debut.
  • FEATURES 1979 EFFIGY! In keeping with the historical nature of this celebration, the obverse re-creates the effigy that appeared on our very first Gold Maple Leaf (GML) issued in 1979.
  • OUTSTANDING CRAFTSMANSHIP AND PURITY! The maple leaves dazzle in a luminous reverse-proof finish, which places the focus on the highly detailed engraving that gives each leaf a life-like appearance—and all in the gleam of 99.99% pure gold.
  • READY TO SHOWCASE WITH PRIDE! All four coins are packaged together side-by-side in a hinged, maple leaf-shaped case. It's a fitting way to store and display these maple-themed coins that will bring added prestige to your collection!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coin sets. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • 99.99% PURE GOLD COINS! Your coin set has no GST/HST!

Design:

All four of your coins are 99.99% pure gold and share the same reverse design by Canadian artist Nathalie Lagacé. Presented in the style of botanical art, three different sizes of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves are gently overlapped to ensure an unobstructed view of the finely engraved details, which dazzle in a reverse-proof finish. The privy mark "40 YEARS – ANS" is struck on each reverse, along with the double dates "1979" and "2019" to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf (GML). On your 1 oz. coin, the celebration extends beyond the reverse thanks to edge lettering, which reads "05.09.79" for September 5, 1979, the day the Gold Maple Leaf (GML) was officially released to the world. The reverse also includes a colourful, innovative twist that sets this large coin apart: translucent enamel (a first for a gold coin), which adds a beautiful green hue to the leaves. As seen on the first Gold Maple Leaf (GML) issued in 1979, each obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth by Arnold Machin.

Did you know...
  • Our Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin was first introduced in 1979 on a three-year trial basis; the gold bullion offering proved to be so successful that in 1981, Parliament authorized its production on a continuing basis.
  • Its success also inspired the 1988 launch of our Silver Maple Leaf (SML) bullion coin—another favourite among collectors and investors!
  • Our first fractional coins were introduced in 1982, when the 1/4 oz. ($10) and 1/10 oz. ($5) coins made their debut. That same year, our Gold Maple Leaf (GML) also earned the distinction of being the world's FIRST bullion coin minted in 99.99% pure gold!

Packaging

All four coins are packaged together side-by-side in a hinged, maple leaf-shaped case. It's a fitting way to store and display these maple-themed coins that will bring added prestige to your collection!
