The history of Canadian Maple Leaf coins
The Canadian Maple Leaf coin that is sought after by investors around the world was first produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979 as an alternative to the Gold coin minted in South Africa, the Gold Krugerrand. The 1/20 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin was offered for the first time in 1993, and since then has been produced annually. Initially, the Canadian Gold coins were produced with .999 fine Gold; however, that changed in 1982. In November 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint began producing the Gold bullion coins with .9999 fine Gold, making the Gold coins even more popular among investors.
Why invest in Canadian Maple Leaf coins?
These Canadian Maple Leaf coins feature the same iconic design and high .9999 fine Gold purity as other Canadian Maple Leaf coins, one of the most popular bullion coins in the world. The fractional size of 1/20 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins make the Gold bullion coins perfect for investors who want to add Gold to their investment portfolio but have a smaller budget, or want to add smaller amounts of Gold to their portfolio. Because these Canadian Gold coins are backed by the Canadian government for weight and purity, many investors prefer these Gold coins to Gold rounds or bars. The Royal Canadian Mint also offers Gold coins in larger sizes, which can help investors with a larger budget maximize their investment, as coins in larger sizes usually cost less per troy ounce.
When you buy Canadian Maple Leaf coins, know what different types of coins are available at APMEX.
When you purchase Canadian Maple Leaf coins to diversify your investment portfolio, it is important to know these are quintessential investment-grade coins that have limited numismatic value. The 1/20 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins and most other modern Canadian Maple Leaf coins are considered bullion, which means their value is based primarily on their metal content, while other coins are semi-numismatic, and have value based both on their metal content and their potential collectible value. Other Canadian Gold coins, including older and rarer modern and vintage Maple Leaf coins, are often numismatic coins whose prices are based on their Precious Metal content plus their condition, rarity, dates and mint marks. For investors in Royal Canadian Mint coins who want to purchase for a Precious Metals IRA, which is a self-directed IRA, keep in mind that numismatic coins are not IRA acceptable.
