Gold Maple Leaf Coin

To enhance the 1 oz coin it has translucent enamel and can only be bought as part of this set. Our first coin to feature this, it’s simply a must-have for any serious collector to add to their collection. These four coins come in a fractional set (1 oz., 1/4 oz., 1/10 oz., 1/20 oz.). To make these coins even more attractive they are packaged to allow you to showcase them in a maple themed case with side by side hinging. As with any Canadian Mint coin, the craftsmanship and details are outstanding, and because of this, each maple leaf stands out as if they were real.
The Year of the Pig Gold Coin
This year, 2019, is considered ‘The Year of the Pig’ and we have a precious coin that celebrates this special year. It is a part of our Chinese Lunar collection. It is made of 18 Karat Gold and is full of features such as fine engraving and frosted detail. It comes in a red presentation case that, according to the Chinese, will symbolize and bring good luck. This can be given as a gift for a child born this year as it will have something to be cherished and kept for a lasting memory. The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. In Chinese culture, pigs are a symbol of wealth. A pig represents luck, overall good fortune, wealth, honesty, general prosperity, symbolizing a hardworking and peaceful person.
Canadian Connection to Apollo 11
Few Canadians know about the huge contributions that their countrymen made to help Apollo 11’s mission to land on the moon successfully. To recognize such heroic feats,
Royal Canadian Mint designed and created a coin highlighting this fantastic achievement for its 50th anniversary. It was the unique crushable aluminum honeycomb invention for the lunar lander legs that won Quebec based, Héroux Devtek, the NASA contract. With the prestigious company building the Apollo landing kit, this made Canadian feet the first to come into contact with the surface of the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission. This stunning coin is shaped in a convex style that appears
to make the moon jump out of the coin.
