**Golden Ray on a Cloudy Day**

Coins - World | Kepi

Hey everybody! Hope your all having a great day and that all our YN's are having fun at the live auction! I'd like to share with you one of the first coins I bought for my collection way back in 2007. This was a huge leap as I was a newbie collector and we're talking gold.. But I dived in and bought my first gold coin! This is from the Royal Canadian Mint. A 2007 1oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf $200 Dollar Coin. It's also encased in a Assay holder which is kinda cool. This coin weighs 31.15 grams of .99999 of pure gold and has a diameter of 30 mm. The obverse shows Queen Elizabeth ll along with "200 Dollars" and "2007". The reverse is a multi-maple leaf design as well as the inscriptions "CANADA" along with weight, purity and metal. It also had a low mintage of 30,848. Its kinda rainy out here in the desert today. So I decided to look through my coin vault... Rainy day activities...Right... haha Which leads up to this coin. I hadn't looked at it for a long time and thought this is the perfect coin for a blog today! A bright ray of golden sunshine on a cloudy day...
I hope you enjoy it too. Comments are always welcomed.

Beautiful coin. I always have been drawn to these Canadian gold coins. They have a much more pure state than ours. I like that card it is housed in. Very cool. Thanks for sharing your rainy day past time.

Thanks for sharing that one, I'm envious. I've only got up to half ounce, my favorite being a 1/4 oz 2001 holographic I bought shortly afterwards. Impeccable taste as always!

A beautiful coin, I wonder how much time before we see our first Charles III coin.

Wonderful items and photos to share, Kepi. Thanks. I have been trying to come up with something special to honor this great British Queen. As a Saturday sidekick I spent my day searching books and vintage pics that would add to this spot in history we have been facing thru the week. Your collection is well picked up and precisely chosen for the ongoing news from England. Beautiful certified coins.

Kepi, not only is this a beautiful coin, buts it’s very emblematic of the current time, with the Queen’s passing. Many in the UK and around the world will be looking for that ray of sunshine while mourning the loss of the Queen, and her image on such a beautiful gold piece like this, is one way to remember she was the sunshine on a cloudy day for her people, for over 70 years.
