1 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coins
1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins For Sale
Investing in precious metals is classic investing, unlike buying stocks or bonds, which are unmistakably modern options. Precious metals like gold, silver and platinum also do not suffer from the same volatility that marks the stock market, and they are not subject to the massive devaluation that can occur when the market corrects itself or flat-out crashes. Of course, gold is probably the single most popular metal in which to invest, and you have plenty of options out there. However, the One Ounce Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin might be one of the best choices to add to your portfolio.
When you buy Gold Maple Leaf coins, you’re getting a full ounce of .9999 fine gold. That’s really the most important reason to consider these coins – the precious metal content and purity. The Gold Maple Leaf is Canada’s official gold coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, for investors and numismatists alike. It combines both precious metal value with some collectability, although its underlying value is pegged closer to gold than to vintage coins.
The 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin features the image of Elizabeth II on the obverse, with her name, the minting date, and the notation that the coin's face value is 50 Dollars. On the reverse, you’ll find the coin’s namesake maple leaf, with Canada at the top. Under the maple leaf are the words FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR, with the notation of 9999 on both the left and right sides of the coin.
You’ll have a number of options available when you decide to buy Gold Maple Leaf coins. For instance, you can opt for the 2007 Maple Leaf with the assay card. This is the first year the coin was issued, and is generally the most valuable, as it combines both numismatic and precious metal value. The 2015 Gold Maple Leaf coin is slightly more valuable than some other minting dates. If you’re seeking the lowest cost of entry, then consider the current year Gold Maple Leaf coin, which is priced only slightly higher than the spot price of gold (to account for minting costs and dealer markup).
