Probably the second highest volume gold bullion coin in sales in the world, the Canadian Mint's One Ounce Maple Leaf Gold Coin has been extremely popular since it was first minted in 1979. The Royal Canadian Mint or RCM mints this classic bullion coin out of 24 karat or .9999 Fineness Gold and strikes the coin with almost proof-like press pressures such that the finished gold coin is indeed beautiful. With one of the tightest quality control programs in existence, RCM bullion products always possess the highest purity contents practical for non-circulating gold bullion coins. Another big plus for the Maple Leaf Gold coin is very aggressive pricing by RCM that puts the Maple Leaf easily 1.5 percentage points lower in premium over spot than its nearest competitor, the American Eagle gold bullion coin. Our neighbor to the North is very skilled at producing pure gold bullion coins at very reasonable prices.
