Each Maple Leaf is legal Canadian tender guaranteed by the Government of Canada for its weight and purity. The obverse (front) features Queen Elizabeth II, while Canada’s signature maple leaf is depicted on the reverse.
The gold is 24 karats -- the same as the Gold American Buffalo -- and the gold itself comes from Canadian gold mines. It was introduced in 1979 as an alternative to the South African Krugerrand, which was the only gold bullion coin made at the time.
