Throughout time, from the Greek and Roman ages to more modern times, civilizations flourished with sound money. The gold coin has proved to be the time-tested answer for societies desiring economic prosperity. The alternative, fiat currency, has resulted in the demise of prosperous civilizations since Roman times. The word "fiat" means by government edict. It is simply impossible for a government to magically proclaim sound money and reliable purchasing power of wealth with paper currency. This fact prompts Americans to consider investing in gold coins.
In today's world of fiat currencies, buying gold coins still answers the need for sound money, as it has for thousands of years. Bullion coins have a proven ability to protect wealth and preserve one's purchasing power, and gold coins offer divisible size and are universally acceptable in a recognizable form. This makes the purchase of gold coins and the selling of gold coin convenient through reputable coin dealers. Monex is America's premier coin dealer because of its sizable buy-and-sell bullion and coin market. Billions of dollars in transaction volume is proof that Monex offers competitive gold coin prices, making Monex the preferred source for the purchase of coins. Whether it be for investing in pure 24k gold Vienna Philharmonic, American Buffalo, or Canadian Maple Leaf coins, or other monetary bullion coins like the Krugerrand or the US American Eagle, buying gold coins is a convenient method for wealth protection and profit potential.

First minted in 2017 by the Royal Canadian Mint, the MegaLeaf™ is a .9999 (or “four-nines”) fine, legal tender pure gold bullion coin that contains 50% more pure gold than a standard Gold Canadian Maple Leaf — AND — is one of the most artistically-stunning coins ever produced by the Mint. MegaLeaf™ combines a number of design features previously introduced by the Canadian Mint on other world-class bullion coins produced in years past. Precise radial lines that emanate from the center of the coin's obverse create a light-diffracting pattern that also serves as a unique state-of-the-art security feature. This radial line effect also carries over to the reverse of the coin and is used in the outer ring of the coin's "tails-side" design. On the coin's reverse is the maple leaf image created by Royal Canadian Mint artist and senior engraver Stan Witten, the same image that was used on the Mint's "Million-Dollar Maple Leaf" – a 100 kilogram "five-nines" pure gold bullion coin boasting a $1 million face value, first produced in 2007. The reverse of the coin also features a micro-engraved maple leaf laser mark in the coin’s field. In the center of the mark, visible under magnification, is the numeral “17,” denoting the coin’s year of issue (2017).More Information
