Platinum Maple Leafs are an excellent way to buy platinum bullion. Backed by the Royal Mint of Canada for weight and metal content, each coin contains a full troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum, making it one of the purest platinum coins available.
The Royal Canadian Mint began producing 1-oz. Platinum Maple Leafs in 1988. Production ceased from 2003 until 2009, when it resumed in order to meet increasing demand for platinum bullion among investors. Inscribed with a "face" value of $50, Canadian Maple Leaf platinum bullion coins are easy to buy or sell, and have been universally praised for their purity and quality of minting.
Benefits of Canada Platinum Maple Leafs
Highest quality platinum — Each 1-ounce Platinum Maple Leaf contains a full troy ounce of platinum, minted in 99.995% fine purity.
Content guaranteed — Canadian Platinum Maple Leafs are one of the few platinum bullion coins produced by a government mint. Each coin is stamped with its weight and platinum content, which are guaranteed by the Royal Mint of Canada.
Official legal tender — Platinum Maple Leafs are genuine legal tender. Each 1-ounce coin has a face value of $50CDN, although the actual trading value fluctuates with the price of platinum.
Better than bars and ingots -- We recommend Canadian Maple Leafs over platinum bars and ingots because they're easier to sell, store, and transport. They do not incur the additional costs of assaying when it is time for you to sell.
Perfect mint quality -- Canadian Maple Leaf platinum coins are taken directly from the Canadian Royal Mint press and sealed in transparent cellophane so their quality remains virtually perfect.
Beautiful designs -- The bust of Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse, while the reverse depicts the traditional Canadian Maple Leaf image.
Instant liquidity — Platinum Maple Leafs are saleable at market value anywhere platinum is traded.
Easy to store and transport — Platinum bullion coins are compact, convenient, and easy to store or transport.
