1oz gold Candian Maple Leaf from our best value bullion range.

99.99% Gold Investment Coin

The first gold Maple Leaf coins were produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979 at a time when the gold Krugerrand was in decline. These new gold coins, composed of 31.11 grams of .999 (24 carat) gold with a diameter of 30.00 millimetres became popular quickly.

Canadian 1oz Maple Leaf coins have always contained a troy ounce of pure gold but the fineness was increased after 1982 to .9999, making them among the purest precious metal coins in the world.

A few decades later you can also buy silver Maple Leafs, fractional issues and a range of collectible proof editions but the original gold Maple Leaf is the classic for a reason. For UK buyers the big benefit remains their VAT free status, making them an attractive investment option.

The Canadian Maple Leaf

You'll find one of three royal portraits on the obverse of our best value gold Maple Leaf coins. Over the years, effigies of Her Majesty the Queen by Arnold Machin (1979-1989), Dora de Pédery-Hunt (1990-2003) and Susanna Blunt (since 2004) have featured on these Canadian coins, along with the inscription: 'ELIZABETH II'. The obverse will also feature the face value: $50 / Fifty Dollars and the date.

The reverse has remained largely unchanged since these coins were introduced. It features the national symbol of Canada - the maple leaf - rendered boldly and realistically in the centre of the coin with 'CANADA' above and the composition below: 'FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR'.

In 2013 a second, laser-engraved maple leaf was offed to the reverse as a security feature, followed in 2015 with radial background lines to both sides.

Like all bullion coins, you might find minor bag marks or scratches on these 1oz gold coins. None of these will be significant enough to impact the weight of the coin.
