The 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin was introduced by the the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979 and honored not only Queen Elizabeth II but also the symbol most closely associated with Canada, the maple leaf. The widespread success of the series over the next decade prompted the mint to release a 1 oz Silver Maple Leaf in 1988. Slight changes have been made to the design since its introduction, including the addition of a privy mark and a radial-line background, but the spirit of these Canadian staples persists.
“Canadian Maple Leaf coins are always a popular choice for investors around the world, due in large part to the high metal composition of .9999 fine Gold or .9999 fine Silver,” APMEX Director of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “We are pleased to once again offer these exceptional Gold and Silver coins to our customers as a perfect addition, or start, to any Precious Metals collection or investment vehicle.”

These fractional sizes provide more options for those looking for the same iconic design at a lower price point.
The classic design of the Canadian Maple Leaf coins has remained the same since its inception. The obverse of each coin coin depicts the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse showcases the signature maple leaf so closely associated with Canadian nationalism and Canadian pride.
Each year, Canadian Maple Leafs are enjoyed by both collectors and investors, for they are as iconic and beautiful as they are popular. Find all 2018 Gold and Silver Maple Leaf coins now available at APMEX.
