2016 Canada 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf BU

2016 Canada 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf BU

Fractional Gold Maple Leafs are popular among investors and collectors because they provide the same iconic maple leaf design and high .9999 fine Gold purity at a lower price point than full ounce Maple Leaf coins.

  • Multiples of 40 are shipped in sealed plastic sheets. All other coins will be in protective plastic flips.
  • Eligible for Precious Metals IRAs.

  • Reverse: Classic maple leaf design surrounded by "Canada," the weight and .9999 fine purity.
  • Radial line background was precisely machined by the Royal Canadian Mint onto their master die to create a unique light diffracting pattern, providing another measure of security.

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.

Nice golden maple leaf

By  Mike

from Connecticut

5.0

While simple, it still shows the beauty of Canada's leaf in a small compact coin. Which is a nice addition to add in some diversity into any collection. What I'd like to see the Royal Canadian Mint do in future mintage is place there gold coins into capsules like the Perth Mint does with there coins.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Great first experience with APMEX! Each maple leaf is individually sealed in a detachable clear envelope. I appreciate the fact that the maple leaf is pure gold. The packaging was very neat and discrete and the coins are beautiful. I like fractionals for the flexibility they offer.

Amazing Beauty and Appropriate Size

By  Dr. Survival

from Peru, IN

5.0

These coins are beautiful. Awesome look with the ray-type grooves on both sides. I prefer the 1/10th ounce size for many reasons. I have purchased 3 or 4 different 1/10th ounce size gold coins. This is by far my favorite. Can't go wrong with this coin. The higher premium works both on the buy and the sell so not a problem for anyone concerned with the maximum amount of gold for your investment dollar.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell

I have little faith in banks and stocks anymore, so I've decided to replenish my stock of precious metals. I can't afford entire ounces at this time, so smaller sized gold and silver coins are at least a start. The coins were packaged EXTREMELY well (in plastic and then in layers of foam rubber inside a box!) and arrived VERY quickly. Will definitely order again.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand
