Benefits of Canada Gold Maple Leafs
Minted in pure gold -- Minted in 99.99% fine gold, the Canadian Maple Leaf is the purest gold bullion coin in the world. Many gold investors prefer the purity of the Maple Leaf to American Eagles, which have small amounts of copper and silver added to increase durability but add no real value.
Government guaranteed content -- Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins are minted by the Royal Canadian mint, which guarantees their gold content and purity. Each 1-ounce coin contains a full troy ounce of gold and has a face value of $50 (CDN). The Gold Maple Leaf is legal tender in Canada, a country that is widely respected for its independence and stability.
Instant liquidity -- Canadian Maple Leafs gold are saleable at gold market value worldwide because of their recognized purity and quality.
Easy to store and transport -- Gold bullion coins are compact, convenient, and easy to store or transport. We pack them securely in 3-inch tall, break-proof plastic tubes that are perfect for home safes and bank safety deposit boxes.
Better than bars and ingots -- We recommend gold bullion coins like Canadian Maple Leafs over gold bars and ingots because they're far easier to sell, store, and transport; and they do not incur the additional costs of assaying when it is time for you to sell. With the advent of government-issue bullion coins in the last 20 years, most gold bar manufacturers have been put out of business.
Perfect mint quality -- Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are taken directly from the Royal Mint press and put directly into 20 coin mint storage tubes. Although they might occasionally get a small contact nick, their quality remains virtually perfect, like the day they were made.
Beautiful coin designs -- Many people enjoy collecting Canadian Maple Leaf gold bullion coins simply for their beauty. The bust of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Arnold Machin, graces on the obverse side. The reverse depicts the traditional Canadian Maple Leaf image.
