1 oz. Canadian Platinum 
Maple Leaf Bullion Coin

In 1988, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the first Platinum Maple Leaf bullion coin to complement its gold and silver offerings.

The Mint produced the platinum bullion coin from 1988 to 1999, then discontinued the coin from the year 2000 thru 2008.

Then the Platinum bullion coin was reintroduced, in 2009.

The coins have legal tender status in Canada, but as is often the case with coins made of precious metals, the face value of these coins are only symbolic and not a true reflection of their Real Value.

The phrase "FINE PLATINUM 1 OZ PLATINE PUR" is displayed along the bottom of the bullion coin.

The purity of the platinum coin is "9995," this is displayed on both sides of the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf.

In 2014, the Royal Canadian Mint added the radial lines to make it harder for counterfeiter's to reproduce the coins, these lines are engraved on both sides of the platinum bullion coin.






Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf Security Mark

micro engraved security feature

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

In 2014, the RCM started to add this feature to the reverse side of the 1oz. Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf bullion coin.

The RCM's security mark is a Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf design produced by the Mint’s use of laser technology.

Inside of the laser engraved maple leaf is the numeral “17” indicating the coin’s year of issue, which is more easily visible under magnification.
