The Maple Leaf Fractional Series
The ¼ oz and 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf was introduced in 1982. The ½ oz size was first issued in 1986. There is also a 1/20 oz Gold Maple Leaf that was brought to market by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1993. However, it is not as popular as the other fractional sizes.
Fractional sized coins like the 2017 ¼ oz Gold Maple Leaf provide more options to gold buyers who are looking for alternatives to 1 oz coins. The other advantage is that small bullion coins can be used for trading and bartering.
Collectors who are interested in owning a variety of different name brand gold coins are also sometimes attracted to fractional sizes. It should be noted that fractional size coins will often carry a higher premium because they are more expensive to mint.
Like the 1 oz version, the 2017 fractional Maple Leaf series depicts the famous image of the Maple Leaf of the front side of the coins. On the reverse side the right portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is shown. The image of the Queen is a popular motif on all commonwealth bullion coins.
The design of the Maple Leaf is consistent from year to year, which adds to its appeal.
