1 oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Bullion Coin




In 1979, the 1 oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin was introduced.

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

1 oz. Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins minted from 1979 - 1981, had a gold purity of only .999.

Since 1982, every gold maple leaf bullion coin has been minted with .9999 fine gold, making the Canadian bullion coins one of the purest gold coins regularly issued.

The 1 oz. gold bullion coin has the Face Value of "50 DOLLARS" and the year the coin was issued is inscribed across the bottom of the coin.

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