The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is the official bullion gold coin of Canada and is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. The Gold Maple Leaf is one of the purest gold coins of regular issue in the world, with a gold content of .9999 fineness (24 carats), with some special issues .99999 fine. The one ounce coin has a face value of $50.
The obverse or front of the coin depicts an image of Queen Elizabeth. Depending on the year of the coin you may see different images of the queen as they have updated the design several times to show a more realistic view of the queen at her current age. The 1988–1989 shows a 39-year-old Queen while the 1990–2004 a 64-year-old Queen and finally the 2005–present shows the 79 year old Queen.
The gold maple leaf is popular with investors and is an IRA approved gold bullion product. The coins typically carry higher premiums than gold bars but they also consistently maintain higher resale value when liquidating precious metals. Although some dates and sizes can be slightly rare, in general one ounce gold eagles simply track the price of gold in terms of value. Selling gold maple leaf coins is simple but can require tax reporting. For more information on tax reporting see our handy bullion tax guide.
