In 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the world’s first .9999 pure 24k gold bullion coin, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. At that point, the only widely available gold bullion coin was the 22k South African Krugerrand. The Royal Canadian Mint’s insistence on using only the finest coin blanks has made the Gold Maple Leaf the standard against which all other 24k gold bullion coins are judged. The Gold Maple Leafs are available in 5 denominations containing 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/10, or 1/20 ounces of gold. Each of these coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain on the obverse and the national symbol of Canada, the maple leaf, on the reverse. Gold Maple Leaf coins are traded around the world and their purity and weight are guaranteed by the Canadian Government.
