Although the 2019 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf release marks 40 years of production for this iconic coin, the 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf isnt quite that old yet. The 1/2 oz coin debuted in the series starting in 1986. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf series evolved three times early on in its existence.
The first change came in November 1982 when the purity of the coins was increased from .999 to .9999 fine gold. At that same time, a second change was made by adding the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins to the collection. The third big change early came in 1986 with the addition of these 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins.
On the reverse of 2019 1/2 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins is the image of a sugar maple leaf. The nations iconic symbol dates back to the 18th century as a symbol of French Canadian provinces and has featured on the Gold Maple Leaf coinage since its 1979 debut.
