Gold Canadian Maple Leafs
Monex, the country's leading precious metals investment firm, is pleased to offer gold investors the beautiful, pure gold Canadian Maple Leaf...a legal-tender bullion coin known worldwide for its purity, refinement and beauty.
Since its initial release in 1979 as a pure, 24 karat gold alternative to the 22 karat South African Krugerrand, the only other one troy ounce gold bullion coin available at the time, the gold Maple Leaf has become the standard of quality against which all other bullion coins are measured.
Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are known and respected throughout the world because of the impeccable standards of quality mandated by the Royal Canadian Mint. The Royal Canadian Mint's insistence upon flawless planchets, the pure gold blanks from which gold coins are struck, has led to an enviable reputation among demanding investors and collectors. Its impeccable quality, pleasing design, and fine gold purity (at ninety-nine point nine-nine percent pure gold, or "four-nines" fine) has made the Canadian Maple leaf one of the preferred gold coins of investors around the world. In fact, the one troy ounce gold Canadian Maple Leaf has been in continuous production longer than any other pure gold bullion coin.
Each gold Maple Leaf coin features the image of Queen Elizabeth the second, along with the denomination and date of issue, on the obverse side...and an image of Canada's national symbol, the maple leaf (from which the coin derives its name), on the reverse side, along with the name of the country and the level of purity of the gold, listed in both English and French.
The Canadian Maple Leaf is currently available from Monex in three different sizes:
The classic one troy ounce coin, which measures 30mm in diameter with a thickness of 2.87mm, makes the coin approximately the same size as an extra thick United States half-dollar. The coin carries a face value of 50 Canadian Dollars. One ounce Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are offered by Monex in units of 10 one-ounce coins, and are available for both personal delivery and through the exclusive Monex ATLAS program, and the coins make a wonderful addition to any investment portfolio and are also available for IRA investment.
Canadian Maple Leaf coins are also available from Monex in fractional sizes. The quarter-troy-ounce Canadian Maple Leaf coin has a diameter of 20mm, with a thickness of 1.78mm, and a face value of 10 Canadian Dollars. The tenth-ounce gold Maple Leaf has a diameter of 16mm and a thickness of 1.13mm, making it comparable in size to a United States dime, and carries a face value of 5 Canadian Dollars. All fractional gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins are available from Monex for personal delivery only, in units of 20 coins.
In 2007, the Royal Canadian Mint surprised the numismatic world by creating and issuing two very interesting variants of the classic pure gold Maple Leaf one-ounce coin -- the world's largest and purest gold coin ever produced -- a 100 kilogram, or 220 pound, "five-nines" fine (or ninety-nine point nine-nine-nine percent pure gold), one million dollar (Canadian) face value coin (although the gold content was worth over TWO million dollars (U.S.) at the time).
In 2007, the Royal Canadian Mint also began producing a special new "five-nines" fine, one-ounce Gold Maple Leaf with a $200 Canadian face value, the highest face value of any one-ounce legal tender gold bullion coin.
Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins are internationally recognized, and they are bought and sold anywhere in the world gold is traded...and the government of Canada guarantees the purity, weight and legal tender value of every gold Maple Leaf coin.
With their classical beauty...unsurpassed purity...legal tender status...and backing by the Canadian government...gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins provide investors and collectors with coins that can be both a secure and internationally-recognized addition to a well-diversified investment portfolio.
