Crafted To Become A Legend
In the days of the Apartheid, there was one coin that was desired above all others, the Kruggerand Gold Coin, valued both for its gold content and its design it was difficult to acquire due to economic sanctions on South Africa during that time. So it was that Master Engraver Walter Ott was inspired to order the creation of the maple leaf gold coin, and put the respected Stanley Witten in charge of a design that was to become one of Canada’s most popular coin. Easily obtainable with its quality guaranteed by a respected government, this 25mm disc of gold quickly became a favorite of investors and numismatists alike.

The reverse side bears a maple leaf, with the word “CANADA” above, framed by its purity (9999), with “FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR” engraved below.
