Product Description

Affordable pure gold! And it's a Gold Maple Leaf! This intricately engraved proof depicts a two leafed sprig of the beautiful Silver Maple, with a low mintage, too!

Canadian maple species are beautifully varied and inspire reverence whenever and wherever they’re found! Each one is defined by unique characteristics and typically identified by the shape of its leaves. In the case of the silver maple leaf (Acer saccharinum), that means the deeply cut “V” sinuses of its distinctive foliage. Stately and elegant, this species' leaves remarkable silvery-white underside seemingly shimmers in the breeze as it basks in the golden sunlight (or the gold proof finish on this tempting, low mintage 1/25 troy ounce pure gold coin!).

Every single year the annual 1/25 Ounce Gold Proof from Canada sells out, and every year it then goes up in value. With such a popular theme (a gold maple leaf), our recommendation is not to wait - get your proof finish gold maple today!

A Diminutive Artistic Masterpiece!
The Red Maple is well known throughout eastern North America for its brilliant scarlet fall foliage.The design by Canadian artist Margaret Best captures the lifelike beauty of an iconic Canadian maple by bringing together not one but two silver maple leaves. Both are depicted in a downward position, as they often appear naturally when attached to the branch. The view of the leaf’s upper surface (foreground, right) dominates the field, Slightly curling at the tips, it bears the deeply veined pattern that produces an intricate, almost lace-like appearance. The crossover of the two stalks adds a sense of layering as the focus transitions to the second leaf (left), which presents its silvery underside. Where the veins are sunken on the first leaf, they are raised and prominent on the second - another example of the characteristic differences between a leaf’s two sides, which are further enhanced by the use of matte and polish finishes that recreate the striking visual contrast between the two.
