The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is a very sought after bullion gold coin among investors. The coin began being minted in 1979 by the Royal Canadian Mint. The Canadian Maple Leaf is one of the purest gold coins currently in production with a gold content of .9999 millesimal fineness.

The current Maple Leafs available are the Platinum Maple Leaf, Silver Maple Leaf, Palladium Maple Leaf and Bimetallic Maple Leaf. The limited editions would include the new 99.999% Gold Maple Leaf, the Coloured Gold Maple Leaf, the Hologram Gold Maple Leaf, they Olympic Maple Leaf and the Privy-marked GML’s.

There are not many flaws to contend with when collecting or investing in these coins, however it is important to remember that these coins are pure gold. They will show their wear and handling marks due to the softness of the 24k gold and the milled edge.
 
Regardless of handling damage, the Canadian Maple Leaf is sure to be an asset to any investment portfolio or collection.
