When buying platinum coins, there are a handful of options you can choose from today. While some mints have been adding platinum coinage to existing programs, others adopted the metal in their annual-release collections much earlier. The Platinum American Eagle and Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf are examples of early-issue platinum coins still available in the market now. Today, ½ oz Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you housed in protective plastic!
  • First released in 1988 by the Royal Canadian Mint!
  • Available here with various date marks!
  • Consists of One-Half Troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum.

Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coins were introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988. That first year of issue included a 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz choice for investors. The same weight options remained from the RCM until 1993 when a 1/20 oz coin was added. In 1994, the Royal Canadian Mint added a 1/15 oz coin to the collection, but only for that release year.

In 2002, the Royal Canadian Mint suspended the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf coinage in the face of falling platinum prices and flat demand for products made of platinum. In 2009, the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf collection was revived but only offered in a 1 oz coin.

All ½ oz Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coins available to you in this listing come from various years of issue. The ½ oz Platinum Maple Leaf only has possible date marks ranging from the 1988 introduction of the coins to the 2002 suspension of the series. Silver.com will send you a coin with a date mark based upon availability in our warehouse when your order is processed and packaged for shipping. We cannot guarantee or reserve a specific date mark for you.

The reverse of the ½ oz Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coin includes the sugar maple leaf design in the center with engravings of the nation of issue, purity of the coin, metallic content, and weight. This design is from Walter Ott and the Royal Canadian Mint and debuted in 1979 on the Gold Maple Leaf.

On the obverse of ½ oz Platinum Maple Leafs is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The 1988 and 1989 coins have Arnold Machin’s second-generation portrait of Her Majesty which was in use from 1965 to 1989. All other ½ oz Platinum Maple Leafs have the third-generation design created in 1990 by Dora de Pedery-Hunt, the first Canadian to design the Queen’s portrait for the RCM.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
