The Gold Maple Leaf is similar to the American Gold Eagle. Both are highly sought after and frequently invested in.
The Royal Canadian Mint first issued the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin in 1979. Presenting it at a point in time when coin investors had only one choice: the South African Gold Krugerrand. Originally minted at .999 fineness from 1979 – 1982. In November 1982, that all changed. Minted at .9999 fineness. That is 99.99% pure gold. Which makes it the first of its kind. The design on the reverse of this coin incorporates the universally recognized symbol of Canada, the maple leaf. On the obverse is Queen Elizabeth II.
This gold coin comes in the following sizes: 1 oz, 1⁄2 oz, 1⁄4 oz, 1⁄10 oz, and 1 gram. Often purchased as singles, in tubes of 25, and proof versions with certificates.
1989 = 10th Anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf. Made in proof only versions. Sold individually as 1 oz. coins or in a set of four to include the 1⁄2 oz, 1⁄4 oz, and 1⁄10 oz coins.
1999 = 20th Anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf coin. It came with a privy mark “20” on it. A Hologram set was also minted. In denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20, and $50. The Royal Mint minted 500 of these. The first coins the Royal Canadian Mint created to feature a hologram. Furthermore, the Royal Mint created an additional fractional five-coin set, which was the first colored coins the mint ever produced. 13,025 of these sets were minted to commemorate the 20th Anniversary.
2004 marked the 25th Anniversary of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin. The Royal Mint added the 1/25 oz. gold coin in place of the 1-gram coin to celebrate.
30th Silver Anniversary – In Gold:
In 2018, the Canadian Royal Mint created a 1oz. pure gold coin marking the 30th Anniversary of the Silver Maple Leaf. They minted 500 of these extraordinary beauties. It is 5 9’s pure gold!! That is a whopping 99.999% pure gold. Complete with edged lettering, double-incuse images, and a selective platinum plating. With the maple leaf on the reverse and Her Majesty’s image on the obverse. Incuse struck into this 99.999% pure gold coin. Thus, making this coin double-incuse!
Double-incuse? What is that? Incuse, where the image struck on the coin is recessed into the coin compared to a raised relief. The raised relief is typically what is found on a majority of coins. This incuse, sunken format, is challenging to produce for any mint. However, the Royal Mint did so doubly! On the front (obverse) and back (reverse) of this coin! Furthermore, the number “30” is lettered into the edge of this coin. Truly making it a rare and highly desirable coin.
In 2019, to celebrate their 40th year since first minting the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, the Royal Mint created several commemorative coins.
One of which is 99.999% pure gold. A 1 oz. pure gold coin. Double-incused. With pink gold plating on the maple leaf and “40” lettering on the edge in both smooth and raised edging. It features the original maple leaf from 1979. Only 350 were minted.
Additionally, 175 proof finish 2 oz. Gold Maple Leaf coins. Micro-engraved with a recurring number “40”. Providing enhanced security features just like those found on the bullion coin. On the obverse, is Queen Elizabeth II with the same micro-engraved “40” and small maple leaves.
A 5 oz. Gold Maple Leaf 40th Anniversary coin was also made. They minted a select few. 99 to be exact. Making it an extremely rare collectible to buy or sell. The reverse features the iconic maple leaf design from the original Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin released in 1979, artfully interlinked with a large, stylized number forty, highlighted by contrasting finishes. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. When this 5 oz. gold coin sold out, the Canadian Royal Mint designed another one, slightly different in design!
Minting, again, only 99 of them! features the iconic Gold Maple Leaf (GML) centered on the coin accompanied by a special 40th anniversary privy mark. The reverse proof field features the text “CANADA”, the nominal metal weight “5 OZ”, the purity standard of “9999 AU”, the face value of “500 DOLLARS”, and the date “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
More Maple Leaf Coins!
In addition to those coins mentioned, the Royal Canadian Mint has created several other designs and denominations of the Gold Maple Leaf. Including multiple leaves, and fancy designs.
Most notably is the Gold Big Maple Leaf. Six of these were minted. Each weighing 100 kg (or 220 lbs / 3,215 ozt.) Produced in 2007. At the time, it was named the largest coin in the world by the Guinness World Records.
You can watch the making of The Big Gold Maple Leaf below:
The first in this set remains in storage at the Royal Canadian Mint. The others were sold to private investors. One of which was lent by an investor and on display in the Berlin Bode Museum (pictured above) until 2017. When it was stolen. To date, has not been recovered. Leaving the million dollar (face value) question – Where is the Berlin Big (Gold) Maple Leaf?
Maple Leaf: A Precious Metals Collection
Furthermore, as mentioned, there is a silver version of the Maple Leaf as well. Along with a Platinum and Palladium Maple Leaf!
1988 marked the debut of the Silver Maple Leaf. Typically they are found as 1 oz. coins. In standard silver color, multi-colored versions, and limited edition versions. However, presentation sets are available with the following sizes: 1 oz, ½oz, ¼oz, 1⁄10 oz and 1⁄20 oz as well.
Also that year, 1988, the Royal Mint introduced the Platinum series. Until 2002 it was available in four sizes. 1 oz, 1⁄2 oz, 1⁄4 oz, and 1⁄10 oz. Made of .9995 fine Platinum. They introduced the 1⁄20 oz version in 1993 and discontinued in 2002 as well. Reintroduced in 2009. However, it was only in the 1 oz. version. Yet, it was .9999 in purity. Making it more pure than it’s predecessor. This 1 oz. version is still in production today.
Finally, the Palladium Maple Leaf. Introduced in 2005. Discontinued in 2007. It did; however, reappear in 2009 briefly.
