1 ozt. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Bullion Coin





The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin was first introduced in 1979.

Before the Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coin was minted, the only 1 ozt. gold bullion coins produced were the South African Krugerrand, which was not widely available because of the economic boycott of apartheid in South Africa.

In addition, the 1 ozt. Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins minted from 1979 thru 1982, had a gold content of only .999.

Starting in 1982, the bullion coin was minted with the fineness of .9999, making them one of the purest gold coins regularly issued.

Starting in 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint added a security feature to the 1ozt. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin's reverse side.

Inside of the laser engraved maple leaf is the numeral “14” indicating the coin’s year of issue, which is only visible under magnification.
