The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf is the official gold bullion coin of Canada, and its most famous gold coin. First issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979, it was minted in 99.9% pure gold. This made it and the South African Krugerrands the only pure gold bullion coins minted at that time. The Royal Canadian Mint is known for its brilliant designs and the purity of its gold, making the Gold Maple Leaf coins sought after by both collectors and investors. The weight and purity of each coin are guaranteed by the Canadian Government. The 1980 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coin is currently available for purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Received in a protective plastic flip!
  • Second issue of the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coin!
  • Consists of 1 Troy ounce of .999 fine gold.
  • A profile of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse.
  • The Maple Leaf is featured on the reverse.
  • Has a face value of $50 (CAD) backed by the Government of Canada.

The obverse of this Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin features a right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II. This is a depiction of Her Majesty at 39 years of age. Age-appropriate depictions of Queen Elizabeth II have been featured on the obverse of all Canadian coinage since 1952, when Her Majesty ascended to the throne of the United Kingdom.

The reverse of this Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin features the Maple Leaf. This finely detailed design, clearly showing the texture and veins of the Maple Leaf, was the creation of master engraver Walter Ott, who created this design for the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979. It has remained virtually unchanged throughout the years.

Since issuing the first Gold Canadian Maple Leaf in 1979, the RCM has issued them annually. In the beginning, the Gold Maple Leaf coins were produced with a gold purity of 99.9% and were available only in the 1 oz denomination. By the end of 1982, the RCM had decided to increase the coin’s gold purity to 99.99%, making it the first gold bullion coin to have such high gold purity. This consistency of their design and mintage is what has made them the standard to which other 24-karat gold bullion coins are held.

When the RCM increased the gold purity of the Gold Maple Leaf coins in late 1982, they also began issuing additional weights. First came the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz weights. The 1/2 oz weight was added in 1986 and the 1/20 oz weight in 1993. The RCM experimented with a 1/15 oz weight in 1994 but its poor acceptance led to its cancellation after only one year. A 1-gram weight was added in 2014. Considered to be legal tender, each Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin has a stated face value in Canadian Dollars.

Founded in Ottawa in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. Needing to boost its production capacity, the RCM opened a second facility in Winnipeg in the 1980s. All of Canada’s circulation coins are produced here.

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.

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.

Do you charge sales tax?

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.
