The history of 1/4 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins
The Royal Canadian Mint has been producing Gold Maple Leaf coins since 1979. In 1979 the only other Gold bullion coins were Krugerrand coins, which were hard to find because of the apartheid boycott of South Africa. Over the years, these Gold coins feature Queen Elizabeth II at three different ages. In addition to yearly Gold coins like the 2015 Canadian coins, the mint has also produced a special bullion coin set featuring a bimetallic maple leaf coins in a bullion finish to celebrate 25 years as a leader in bullion coins. 1/4 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins and other fractional sizes have also been produced over the years, giving investors many choices.

No one pays the spot price of Gold because there are other costs such as distribution, fabrication, nominal dealer fee and any numismatic or collector value. As a result, when you buy Gold or any Precious Metal, you are paying the premium price or premium over spot price. When you buy Royal Canadian Mint coins or other Precious Metals, you are also always paying the same price worldwide as the spot price is always based on a troy ounce in U.S. dollars.
