About Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coins

Regarded as one of the most esteemed gold coins in the world, the Maple Leaf coin is the flagship product of the Royal Canadian Mint and a highly sought after investment for retirement funds. Manufactured to precise specifications and containing a gold content of 99.99 percent purity, the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin is a high-quality product that represents an excellent store of wealth for any Gold IRA.

History of Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coins

Canada’s Royal Mint was one of the first precious metal refineries to mint gold coins to be used as investment vehicles. Subsequently, the Royal Mint boasts some of the best coinage techniques in the industry and uses the latest laser technology to micro-engrave coins with the maple leaf motif.

Ever since gold was discovered in the hills of Canada, the country has been a premium source of wealth for the yellow metal. The Maple Leaf gold coin was first introduced in 1978 following the success of the South African Krugerrand – the world’s first gold bullion coin to be offered as an investment tool.

However, because Krugerrand gold coins were subject to export restrictions in countries that did not agree with apartheid, the Maple Leaf became the first investment coin that was easily available to investors all over the world.

When Maple Leaf gold coins were originally struck, they contained a gold content of 999/1000. Thanks to advanced minting techniques developed in the early 1980’s, the Canadian Mint became the first refinery to increase the purity of gold coins to 999.9/1000 in 1982 and in doing so, established benchmarks that are widely used in mintages today.

Why buy Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coins?

Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are meticulously manufactured using some of the most advanced bullion techniques in the world. Acclaimed for their purity, historical relevance and classical design, Canadian Maple Leaf coins are one of the best bullion coins around.

Together with the American Eagle gold coin – which also qualifies for Gold IRAs – the Canadian Maple Leaf is the most purchased gold coin in North America.

Furthermore, precious metals have a history of performing well during economic downturns therefore represent a valuable asset you can use to diversify your investment portfolio. When fiat currencies fall in value, the price of gold goes up.

Design of Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coins

Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins feature the distinctive design that is synonymous with the country. Maple leafs are a national emblem that represent the vast forests of the Canadian wilderness and are used to be kept in doorways to ward off evil spirits.

The maple leaf featured on the obverse side of Canadian gold coins was rendered by Walter Ott who reinforced the Maple Leaf as a national symbol following George Stanley’s 1965 design for the country’s national flag.

Since 2013, the maple leaf design has been manufactured using advanced technology that creates radial patterns in the background to heighten security measures. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin is impossible to counterfeit without sophisticated machinery used by the world’s leading mints.

The reverse side of the coins feature Queen Elizabeth II of England who also acts as Head of State to Canada. Gold Canadian coins produced since 2005 feature the fifth portrait of Her majesty. Coins from 1990 to 2004 feature the fourth edition illustration of the Queen aged 64-years old.
