The first Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin was produced in 1979 by the Royal Canadian Mint, which was founded in 1908. Not only is the Gold Maple Leaf the official gold bullion coin of Canada, but it is also considered to be one of the oldest gold coins on the bullion market today. Due to its purity and quality, it is held in high regard and is often considered to be the standard by which other 24-karat gold bullion coins are judged. Sold as a collectible item, this Proof coin has a mirrored background and a frosted relief. Currently, this 1989 1 oz Proof Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coin Box COA is available for purchase online at Silver.com.

The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin was first produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979, and has been every year since then. The RCM’s first Gold Maple Leaf coins were produced with a gold purity of 99.9%. In 1983, the RCM increased the gold purity of the coins to 99.99%. This made them the first bullion coin to be produced of such high gold purity. Once again, in 2007, the RCM increased the gold purity to 99.999%, however, this was reserved for special edition coins only.

The Gold Maple Leaf coins were initially produced by the RCM only in the 1 oz denomination. Three years later, in 1982, the RCM added 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz denominations. The 1/2 oz denomination was added in 1986 and the 1/20 oz denomination in 1993. The RCM produced a 1/15 oz denomination Gold Maple Leaf in 1994, however, the denomination lacked demand and was not issued again. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Flag, the RCM produced a 1/25 oz denomination Gold Maple Leaf in 2015. This coin’s mintage was limited to just 7,500 coins.

The 1989 Gold Maple Leaf features the 2nd generation version of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created by British coin designer Arnold Machin. It depicts a right facing profile of Her Majesty as a 39-year-old. This was the final year that Machin’s version of Her Majesty appears on the Gold Maple Leaf coin. Since her ascension to the throne in 1952, all Canadian coinage has featured one of the several versions of Queen Elizabeth II.

The reverse of the Gold Maple Leaf continues to feature the beloved Maple Leaf, the unofficial emblem of Canada. The RCM master engraver Walter Ott was the creator of this Maple Leaf design in 1979. Canadians have long considered the Maple Leaf to be a symbol of their pride and nationalism.

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.
