About Certified Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coin

The most sought-after Canadian Gold Coin is the Canadian Maple Leaf coin. This highly desired gold bullion piece was issued for the first time in 1979 and is considered to be the most beautiful gold coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. During 1979 and 1982, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf was produced of 99.9% pure gold. In 1983 the Royal Canadian Mint began producing the coin with 99.99% fine gold. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin is used as a standard for 24-karat gold bullion coins because of its rich history, and many years in production. Each coin is legal tender and its weight and purity are backed by the Canadian government.

Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins are also available in Certified Gold Coins editions. A Certified Gold coin is a coin that is authenticated and receives grading and certification from a reputable coin grading company, such as the likes of PCGS or NGC. In order to be authenticated, graded and certified by these companies, the condition and quality of the coin must be thoroughly examined. The grades which are assigned to such coins can vary from 1 up to 70. Coins with a grade designation of 70 have absolutely no blemishes while 69 graded coins are those which may have up to two minor imperfections or marks. Although Certified Gold Canadian Leaf Coins  with 69 and 70 grades are the most common ones on the market, they are still very hard to find and are considered to be very rare. This is the reason why certified gold coins carry a higher premium than regular gold coins and are more desired by collectors and investors all over the world.

Main Sizes of the Certified Canadian Gold Maple Leaf

Similar to bullion Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins, Certified Gold Maple Leafs are available in various size options, from the best-selling 1 oz. weight option down to the coin’s fractional four sizes of ½ oz., ¼ oz., 1/10 oz. and 1/20 oz. The one-ounce Gold Maple Leafs are popular among investors and collectors because they carry the smallest premium. Aside from the regular certified editions of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin, there are also unique proof sets, such as the certified set of 4 Proof Gold Maple Leaf coins with face values of $50, $25, $10 and $5 Canadian Dollars. This set is very rare because only 6,998 of them have been released by the Royal Canadian Mint back in 1989.

The Design of the Certified Gold Maple Leaf

Certified Gold Maple Leafs feature the same iconic design as the regular editions. On the obverse side of the coin is depicted the profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On the reverse side of the coin is represented the Canadian symbol of nationalism and pride, the Canadian Maple Leaf. The representation of the Golden Maple Leaf emblem and the profile portrait of Her Majesty have remained the same since the coin’s first issue in 1979. Due to the sharp design of the coin’s edges and the smooth look of its fields, this Canadian coin requires very careful treatment because it can be easily scratched.
