The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is a legal tender coin issued for the bullion investing public. The coins do not circulate, but only exist as a medium for the investor to own convenient forms of gold bullion. In theory, none of the coins have any collector premium in relation to each other, however some of the mintage figures reveal small quantities issued in some dates, therefore a small collector market has developed for those.

Each coin shows a maple leaf, with Queen Elizabeth on each. Stiff competition in recent years from other new gold coins has caused the popularity of the maple leaf to slip, however it still ranks among the top gold coins in the world in terms of price and liquidity. In 1983, the fineness of the maple leaf was changed from .999 fine to .9999 fine. Collectors and investors should not be concerned about this, as it only reflects better standards in the refining of the gold. However, due to popular demand, the .999 varieties have a parallel market where the buying and selling prices are lower than .9999 maples. The amount charged above the gold price increases as the size of the coin decreases. Coins that are not in their original sealed packaging, or which exhibit hairlines or signs of mishandling trade at lower prices.

Please note that, as a rule, we DO NOT sell gold maple leafs by date because we usually only have the current year in stock. Anyone interested in older maple leafs might send us a "want" list and we will attempt to acquire the desired years. Prices will be anywhere between 10% and 25% per coin over our current daily rate for our added handling fee. The following table includes information on availability and mintages for the various years and sizes.
