History

The Maple Leaf was introduced in 1979. At the time, the only investment gold coin available was the Krugerrand. However, because of the apartheid policy of the South African government Krugerrand imports were ban in many countries. As the only other alternative to the Krugerrand, sales of the Maple Leaf gold coin surged.

From 1979-1982 the fineness of the Maple Leaf was 999/1000. In 1982 the fineness was increased to 99.99% gold, making the Maple Leaf one of the purest gold coins available on the market.

In 2007 the Royal Canadian Mint introduced a Gold Maple Leaf Coin with a nominal value of 1 million and a metal value of over $3.5 million. It measures 50 cm in diameter, 2 cm in thickness, a weight of 100 kg, and a purity of 99.99% gold.

Royal Canadian Mint

The Royal Canadian Mint has sold more than 29 million ounces of Gold Maple Leaf coins since they were first introduced in 1979. The Maple Leaf was also the first investment bullion coin to have “four nine fine” gold purity.

The mint is recognized worldwide for its its innovative enhanced security and anti-counterfeiting technology. The radial lines on the 2018 Maple Leaf series have been precisely machined to create a light diffracting pattern that is unique and specific to the series.
