The 1/4 oz variant of the Gold Maple Leaf Coin was not introduced until three years after the 1 oz, in 1982. In fact, the Gold Maple Leafs' new fractional sizes became so successful that it led the mint to add more sizes in the years that followed.
In the history of the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, only twice has the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II changed. Created in 2005, the latest representation found on the 2021 coin shows the Queen at 79 years of age.
The history of the Canadian Royal Mint goes back to 1908 when the first mint in Canada opened. This early mint, however, was simply a branch of the Royal Mint of Britain. It wasn't until 1931 that the Canadian Government acquired ownership of the mint.
The side profile of Queen Elizabeth II created by Canadian artist Susana Blunt includes these 1⁄4 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coins. As shown on the corner of the profile, this is denoted by the initials 'SB'. The words "ELIZABETH II" and "10 DOLLARS 2021" act as the financial value for the coin as well as the year of issue surrounding Her Majesty's profile.
The reverse features the intricately crafted maple leaf pattern of these 2021 1/4 oz Gold Maple Leafs. The reverse also includes the purity, weight, and metal content of the coin, in addition to the word 'CANADA' engraved above the leaf.
The Canadian Mint has given collectors and shareholders a more economical route into gold bullion by taking their top-selling Canadian Gold Maple Coin and issuing it in a 1/4 oz fractional format. Be sure to pick one up today and with SD Bullion, lock in at the present gold price.
