The ultra-fine Gold Maple Leaf coin is issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, and is the official bullion coin of Canada. The coin was released in 1979, at a time when the only other modern bullion coin, the Krugerrand, was not widely available in America and Europe. Between 1979 and 1982, the fineness of each Gold Maple Leaf was .999, but in 1982 this was raised to .9999, making it one of the finest coins in the world.
Some special edition Maple Leaf gold coins even have a purity grade of .99999, making them highly valuable and collectable bullion items. This Gold Maple Leaf 1/4oz Coin is beautifully designed, with the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse side and the Canadian maple leaf on the reverse. This simple and elegant design makes for a truly timeless piece of bullion, which is sure to be treasured for generations.
