When the Canada 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins were first minted in 1979, they were the only other bullion coin in production in the world apart from the Gold Krugerrand from South Africa; however, because of the economic boycott of South Africa due to apartheid, the Canadian Gold Maple increased in popularity. The design of this Gold coin has remained mostly unchanged but over the years, there have been added security features to ensure the authenticity of the bullion coins.

In 2013, a security feature was introduced into the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin to ensure its authenticity: a textured maple leaf, micro-engraved with the year of issue using laser technology that is only visible only under magnification. In 2015, radial lines were added to the coin to make it even more secure and resistant to counterfeiting. Additionally, every line pattern is unique to each coin and creates a specific light-diffracting pattern, adding to the beauty of this classic Gold bullion coin.

In 1908, Canadian Governor General Earl Gray struck the first domestically produced coin at the Royal Canadian Mint. Later, in 1931, the British government transferred the institution solely into Canadian hands, permanently eliminating any involvement from The Crown. The creation of the new Royal Canadian Mint coincided with a Gold boom in British Columbia and the Yukon. To refine the vast amounts of raw Gold being mined, there needed to be a way to treat the Gold without shipping it all the way to the United Kingdom, so in 1911, the Canadian Mint finished its original refinery in Ottawa. Years later in 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint became the first refinery to manufacture .9999 fine Gold bullion coins. In 1999 it became the first mint to ever achieve .99999 fine Gold purity.

My first gold purchase

Have been buying silver since it is affordable at this time, but wanted to diversify with gold. Can't afford whole ounces with an ounce being over $1,300 at the time of this review. I do like how fractionals such as this 1/10th that I bought can be purchased for not alot of money if you take the time to save a few dollars and not be stuck with all or nothing with coming up with the money to buy whole ounces. I also like how shipping costs have gone down as well. I made this order on Friday afternoon, and it was delivered to me on Monday.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Recognized Brand

I love the design of this coin. APMEX had a special on them and I took the plunge. I do wish it came in a capsule but it's ok that it didn't. 1/10oz is small but not too small where you can't see it.

Pros

  • Easy to Sell
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Recognized Brand
  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)

I wanted to have an ounce of small denomination gold for barter, and the Canadian 1/10th Maple Leaf was the cheapest gold I could get, ounce for ounce. Through APMEX, the coins came in mint sealed mylar pouches, so I needed to decide whether I wanted to leave them in the pouches, or remove them and put them into 16mm Air-Tite capsules, as I had originally intended. After some thought, I decided to cut off only the tips of the pouch corners and then put them in larger Air-Tite capsules (32mm or 34mm - I don't remember which?). This way, the mint capsules are still intact, and the Air-Tites further protect the coins!

A beautiful coin! Perfect for someone making a small purchase. Even though the coin is very small, the detail of the artwork is beautiful.
