When the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin debuted in 1979 it was available only as a 1 oz coin. In 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint offered more to those who buy gold in the series with the introduction of the first two fractional-weight coins in the collection. Among the two available starting in 1982 was the 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. Right now, 2019 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins are available to purchase online from Wallace Precious Metals.

The 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin isnt celebrating its 40th-anniversary release in 2019 like the 1 oz coin. The date mark remains significant to the program and is a milestone achievement, but the 1/4 oz coin debuted in November 1982 along with the 1/10 oz coin. That year was also significant for the boost in purity from the initial .999 content to .9999 content.
On the obverse side of 2019 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins is Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of Her Majesty was developed in 2002 by Susanna Blunt and released on Canadian coinage in 2003. This is the fourth-generation design used on Canadian coins and the first since Her Majestys father, King George VI, to feature a monarch without a crown.
The reverse of 2019 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins features Walter Otts iconic sugar maple leaf design. The maple leaf has been used as a symbol of Canada dating back before nationhood to the French Canadian provinces of the mid-18th century. Both sides of 2019 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins have the radial line designs which reflect light in unique patterns and make it harder to duplicate the coins when counterfeiting.
