The history of 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leafs
Gold Maple Leaf coins were first minted in 1979 to satisfy the global demand for Gold bullion coins. Before these Gold bullion coins were created, South African Krugerrands were the only pure Gold coins on the market but were difficult to obtain because of political unrest in the country. Gold for Canadian coins, like the 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf, comes only from mines within Canada, and these Gold coins are considered legal tender. From 1979 until November 1982, Canadian Maple Leaf coins were .999 fine Gold, and since then the Royal Canadian Mint has produced these Gold coins in .9999 fine Gold.
Why invest in 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leafs?
The purity of 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leafs makes them an ideal choice for investors, especially those with a smaller budget. These Gold bullion coins are recognized worldwide for the Royal Canadian Mint’s strict adherence to purity and weight guidelines. These Gold Canadian coins typically hold their purchasing power even as the economy falters. Gold coins like the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf have intrinsic value, which means that no matter where you are in the world, the value of 1/10 oz of Gold in the United States is the value of 1/10 oz of Gold in Austria.
How many 1/10 oz Gold Maples Leafs should you buy?
Before buying 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins, it is best to evaluate your budget, time horizon and goals to define your investing strategy. Gold bullion should represent about 5-10 percent of your overall investment portfolio, according to some financial planners. Once you acquire enough Canadian coins to reach your desired goals, it is wise to reevaluate your portfolio regularly to maintain the percentage. Investing in 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins can help to improve the performance of your portfolio.
How is the price of 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leafs determined?
The price of 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leafs is determined by the base Gold spot price, which is the price in U.S. dollars of 1 troy ounce of unfabricated Gold, which is the same worldwide at any given time. However, no one buys Gold bullion at the spot price because it does not account for the many expenses of doing business: fabrication, distribution, a small dealer markup and any numismatic or collector value. The Gold bullion price that you pay includes the premium price. When you buy these Canadian coins, their condition can also contribute to their price, especially if you are investing in proof coins or commemorative coins. Typically, Gold coins of larger weights carry less markup over the spot price of Gold than fractional Gold coins, though the total price will be more affordable because of the lower Gold content.
