The 1/4-oz Gold Canadian Twin Maples coin is the successor to the internationally renowned Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin. First commissioned in 2017 by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM), it’s one of the purest coins available in the world, and it’s designed to commemorate the Canadian nation’s maples. The Royal Canadian Mint coining process is famous in its field for minting the 24 karat gold coin without any base metal.
The original Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin was struck in 1979. It was the first gold coin created out of 0.9999 fine gold, minted without any base metal. The first issue was composed of 1 troy ounce of gold. Due to its global success, the Royal Canadian Mint continued production and introduced higher values of the coin with more weight.
The 1/4 oz Gold Canadian Twin Maples continues the tradition the RCM set with the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin. This fixed-mintage coin is composed of ¼-oz troy ounces of 0.9999 pure gold and features a reverse proof finish. The Mint certainly lives up to its reputation for technical detail, security, and high precision with the featured gold coin.
The unique Gold Twin Maples design on the reverse features two leaves from the sugar maple which is native to Canada. The symbol personifies Canada in the best way, and it was designed by Celia Godkin.
The obverse of the coin features a stunning display of Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt. It’s a small token of gratitude to Her Majesty and Her promise of dedicating her life “whether it be long or short” to the service of others.
The Gold Canadian Twin Maples coin falls under a selected few of IRA-accepted gold bullion coins. A gold IRA functions the same as a regular IRA, except that instead of holding paper assets, it holds physical bullions coins or bars.
