Investors looking to buy gold can turn to the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf as a strong gold bullion product to add to their portfolio. Gold Maple Leaf coins are available in a variety of sizes, which means there is an affordable option available for just about any investor. Right now, 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins are available to purchase online from Gold Club Direct.

Each 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin available for purchase here today is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the coining process.

Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins were the first coins other than the South African Krugerrand offered as gold bullion investment products for private purchasers. The economic boycott of South Africa, due to its apartheid system, led to a ban on the import of Krugerrands in many other countries. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf filled that void and has grown in importance over the decades.

On the reverse of the 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin, you’ll find the sugar maple leaf design that has appeared on the coins since their 1979 introduction. The maple leaf is the national emblem of Canada, appearing on its national flag, and was created for this coin by RCM engravers.

The obverse of all Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. From 1979 to 1989, an image of the 39-year-old Queen appeared on the obverse, followed by a 64-year-old depiction from 1990 to 2004. Susanna Blunt designed a new portrait of Her Majesty in 2003 that debuted on the Gold Maple Leaf in 2005 and continues to this day.
