The Royal Canadian Mint calls its gold Maple Leaf coin “international symbol of purity” because it is 99.99% pure gold. First minted in 1979 as 0.999 fine gold, it has been 0.9999 fine since 1983. Because of their purity, gold Maple Leafs scratch more easily than less-pure bullion and should be handled carefully.
The reverse depicts a maple leaf, the national symbol of Canada, hence the coin’s name. The reverse also has “CANADA” and the gold amount and purity in English and French, the official languages of Canada.
