1 ounce Maple Leaf gold coin of the year 2022, from the Royal Canadian Mint, the mint of Canada.
It is undoubtedly the Royal Canadian Mint's best-known coin, as its design is the country's national symbol: the Maple Leaf. The Maple Leaf gold coin is released every year and usually sells out quickly.
On the cross is a large maple leaf whose bas-relief design is meticulous and detailed, as all its veins and branches can be distinguished. Despite its simplicity, it is quite beautiful and bright. The design of the background certainly helps to focus the eye on the leaf, which envelops us thanks to the strip of regularly arranged lines running from the edge to the centre, where the vanishing point is located. Just below the central motif is another small maple leaf, inside which is the date of issue.
There are hardly any differences between the silver and gold issues. The most striking difference is undoubtedly the gleam of the gold metal, whose beauty radiates and attracts the attention of everyone who comes into contact with it.
On the face of the 2022 Maple Leaf gold coin is the face of Queen Elizabeth II, with magnificent detail in the curls of her hair and the pendant and necklace. The background is the same as the cross.
The edge features a simple striated design, formed by regularly arranged horizontal lines.
The 2022 Maple Leaf gold coin weighs 31 grams and has a diameter of 30 millimetres. It has a face value of 50 Canadian dollars and is a legal tender in the country.
