The history of 1 oz Gold Maple Leafs
1 oz Gold Maple Leafs have undergone a few changes since their first minting in 1979 by the Royal Canadian Mint. At that time, the Canadian coins were only .999 fine Gold, but in 1983 the Gold coins changed to .9999 fine Gold. The Gold coins’ iconic design has largely remained unchanged since the Canadian coins’ inception; however, small security measures have been introduced over time to help confirm the authenticity of these Gold coins. Most recently, the Royal Canadian Mint has replaced the shiny, smooth background of these Gold coins with a radial line finish that diffracts light.
What's the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Worth?
The Gold Canadian Maple leaf is among the most beautiful and iconic coins in the world. The value of a given Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin depends on its weight, mintage and condition. 1 oz Gold Maple Leafs are one of the best-selling Gold bullion coins in the world, and for good reason. The .9999 fine Gold content makes these Canadian coins more desirable to investors than Gold coins with less fineness. Also, you can often find these 1 oz Gold coins for closer to the Gold spot price than smaller, fractional coins, which tend to carry a higher markup over spot price per troy ounce. These Gold coins are usually priced lower than their American counterparts, American Gold Eagles, and this can sometimes create a larger demand for Canadian Maple Leaf Gold coins.
Figuring out when to buy 1 oz Gold Maple Leafs does not have to be complicated.
Knowing when to invest in 1 oz Gold Maple Leafs does not need to be tricky. Many hold Canadian coins for more than three years, and then the current price of Gold becomes less important than its historical performance when compared with other investments. Though the price of Gold may fluctuate, it is not generally subject to the ups and downs of the stock market. Gold coins can add balance to your portfolio and the best time to buy Gold coins is when you have identified your goals and budget.
Discover 1 oz Gold Maple Leafs that feature three different portraits of Queen Elizabeth II.
The 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf design reflects Canada’s strong ties to the English monarchy. Over time, these Canadian coins have depicted Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at three different ages: 39, 64 and 79 years old. Currently, the Gold coins feature her portrait at age 79, designed by acclaimed Canadian artist, Susanna Blunt. This version of the Royal Canadian Mint Gold coin presents a more casual depiction of the Queen by portraying her without a crown.
