Platinum Maple Leaf

Platinum coins are an excellent way to invest in pure platinum because, more than their face value, these coins are prized for their collectibility and liquidity. They can be easily bought, stored and stacked. With the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf coins, you can be sure you will receive only high quality .9995 fine platinum. Platinum, relatively scarce even among precious metals, continue to gain widespread recognition as a viable option in diversifying one’s wealth. Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, these coins were first introduced in 1988 and were minted until 1999 when the rising price of platinum caused demand for platinum bullion coins to fall. The coin was later minted again in 2002. In 2009, the series was revived once again due to popular demand, and today remains as one of the few world platinum bullion coins ever produced. The obverse side bears the regal image of Queen Elizabeth II, along with its denomination and mintage year. The reverse side carries the outline of the iconic Maple Leaf, Canada’s national emblem, with the words, “CANADA,” “.9995 FINE PLATINUM,” and “1 OZ PLATINE PUR,” which is French for “pure platinum.”
