Canadian Gold Maple Leaf
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is the official gold bullion coin of Canada. It is the purest gold coin in the world. With the advent of the Canadian Gold Maple Leafs, the concept of pure gold coins without alloy was pioneered, just a disc of 99.9 percent pure gold that did not require the strength of an alloy since the coin was not intended to circulate or be handled.
Created by Walter Ott in 1979, with a gold content of .9999 fine gold (24k), it contains gold mined totally and only from Canada's own gold mines.
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin is particularly popular in India and the Far East where pure gold is the most accepted and familiar form of gold bullion, even in small weights. You can find the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin bought and sold by gold dealers around the world.
The coin is available now in one twentieth, one tenth, a quarter and one half troy ounces as well as the original and traditional one ounce coins. All gold coins have legal tender status in Canada but the face value is far below the value of the gold content and are largely symbolic.
In addition other forms of gold are available from the Canadian Royal Mint who also refine and produce gold kilo bars, trade bars as well as one, five and ten-ounce gold wafers, all to the same quality standard. All are struck with their weight, gold purity level and the Royal Canadian Mint hallmark.
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is often considered one of the most beautiful of the gold bullion coins and is often collected for its magnificence and beautiful designs. However mostly it is collected due to it being made of pure gold. It is recognised and has a has a resale value around the world, and as the value of gold increases, so will the value of Canadian gold.
