The 2017 Canadian 1 oz Gold Maple is here. The Gold Maple Leaf is the official bullion coin of Canada and it's one of the most popular options for investors who wish to transfer capital to 24 carat gold. Its unique maple leaf design and attractive features also make it a must for any coin collector.
The Canadian Gold Maple was introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979. At the time, the only other bullion coin in existence was the Krugerrand which could be difficult to obtain due to the economic boycott of South Africa. The Gold Maple Leaf proved incredibly popular and more than 25 million troy ounces have been sold since 1979. The Maple Leaf was also the first bullion coin to be minted in .9999 fine gold - coins minted from 1979 to 1982 were .999 pure.
Maple Leaf 1 oz 2017 bullion coins are considered a very safe option for investors. Their purity and iconic design coupled with the coin's unique security features ensures that they retain or increase their value over the years. Each 2017 1 oz Maple Leaf features the sugar maple leaf, a symbol of Canada that is recognised around the world. Its obverse is graced with the Susanna Blunt portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II and the coin's date of issue and face value.
Anti-counterfeit security features are an added advantage for collectors and investors. A pattern of precisely etched lines emanates from the centre of the coin, creating a dramatic light-diffracting sunburst effect. The reverse of the 1 oz Maple Leaf 2017 also features a micro-engraved textured maple leaf motif under the right side of the main design. When viewed under magnification, the number 17 for the year of issue is visible.
