Along with the Gold Maple Leaf, the Platinum Maple Leaf has become one of the world's most popular platinum coins. Platinum is a much rarer metal than gold, and the number of countries coining platinum for the bullion market is smaller than that for gold. All platinum maple leafs show and image of a maple leaf on one side and Queen Elizabeth on the other side. Fractional sizes come sealed in plastic from the mint.

What started out as a simple program of issuing bullion coins has led to the release of some of our rarest modern coins. Some of the platinum coins are believed to have had a mintage of 1200 coins or less, making date collecting a difficult if not impossible challenge. As no attention was paid to the mintage figures during release, these low mintage coins could potentially have been shipped anywhere in the world, and sold to investors who don't know about the low mintage dates. Therefore a lot of these low mintage dates are largely permanently off the market, or being held as speculation lots by a selected few. Many believe platinum to be the precious metal of the future, as currently more than 20,000 different consumer products require platinum for their production. Premiums over the price of platinum increase each time the size of the coin gets smaller. And, damaged or unsealed coins trade at lower prices. One ounce coins do not come sealed.

Please note that we, as a rule, DO NOT sell 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.

These are bullion coins based on Platinum at U$1,200.00/oz. and an exchange rate of 1.12 with prices subject to change in accord with the markets and without notice. Please consider these prices as a close indicator of pricing for estimation purposes only. All bullion items purchased with credit cards incur a 2% surcharge.
