Each coin is characterized by two finishes. The reverse of each coin features a distinctive hologram design. The obverse maintains the traditional bullion coin finish with the 1979 effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin in brilliant relief against a matte finish background.
The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the introduction of the Gold Maple Leaf coin with the hologram set.
The set contains a total of 1.4 oz of .9999 fine Gold that comes in a custom maple-wood collector box.
