Details & Specifications

For more than a quarter-century, the international community has embraced the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf as one of the most reliable bullion coins on the market. Thanks to its extra-pure .9999 fine gold, its various anti-counterfeiting features, and the stellar reputation of the Royal Canadian Mint, investors have continued to covet these coins as a stable, physical store of wealth. Each 2018 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin is designated with a $10 face value and contains one-quarter troy ounce (0.25 troy oz) of fine gold content.

The reverse design depicts one of the national symbols of Canada, the maple leaf. Created by Walter Ott, the engraving is remarkable for its attention to detail and realistic portrayal of the leaf. The issuing country, "CANADA" appears along the top rim, while "FINE GOLD 1/4 OZ OR PUR" is inscribed at the bottom rim. The purity "9999" is placed on either side of the leaf. The field uses a radial line finish especially designed to diffract the light. This serves as an anti-counterfeiting measure, as each line in the design is cut with tolerances measured in microns to achieve this effect.

An image of HRM Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt, appears on the obverse. Her Majesty is shown facing right against the same radial line pattern. The artist's initials "SB" are visible on the Queen's shoulder. Below, the denomination "10 DOLLARS" and the year-date "2018" are inscribed at the bottom rim. The edge of the coin is reeded (also called serrated).

Few bullion coins can match the reliability and name-recognition of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. That's why it's trusted worldwide by investors, banks, financial firms, traders, and collectors alike.

The History of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf

The 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf debuted in 1979 as the world’s first pure gold bullion coin. It was devised as an alternative to the only other gold bullion coin in the world at the time, the 22K South African Krugerrand.

Growing economic sanctions against the white government of South Africa over their subjugation of their black-majority population resulted in a contraction in the Krugerrand’s foreign investment market.

Seeing the unmet international demand for legal tender gold investment vehicles, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Gold Maple Leaf to give those investors a conflict-free gold bullion coin from a democratic nation. From 1979 to 1982, the Gold Maple Leaf was only available in the original 1 troy ounce size, at .999 fineness (99.9% purity).

In November 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint increased the purity of the Gold Maple Leaf to .9999 fine (99.99% purity), and introduced the 1/4 ozt and 1 /10 ozt versions. In 1986, the 1/2 oz Gold Maple Leaf joined the other three sizes. In 1993, the 1/20 ozt Gold Maple Leaf joined the family.

1994 saw the appearance of the experimental 1/15 oz Gold Maple Leaf. This one-year size had a tiny mintage of only 5,493 coins. It would be 20 years before a new size was introduced.

In 2014, the Royal Canadian Mint began striking a 1 gram Gold Maple Leaf as an answer to the recent 1 gram gold bar craze. Dubbed the MapleGram, it is sold in 25-coin blister packs, or singularly.
