Platinum Canadian Maple Leafs remain one of the longest-running platinum coins in the world today. Despite the halt in production that saw no coins issued from 2004 to 2008, the Platinum Maple Leaf enjoys visibility in the market and popularity among investors that puts it alongside platinum coins from other mints around the world.
The 1988 release of the Platinum Maple Leaf puts it ahead of the Platinum Eagle from the United States Mint, the Platinum Elephant from the Bavarian State Mint, the Platinum Philharmonic from the Austrian Mint, and the Platinum Britannia from the Royal Mint. In fact, these coins all debuted much later than the Platinum Maple Leaf, with the exception of the American Eagle. The Elephant, Philharmonic, and Britannia debuted between 2016 and 2018.
The obverse of 2022 1 oz Platinum Canadian Maple Leafs features a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this design, Her Majesty is shown without a crown. This is a first during her reign and a first for a monarch portrait on Canadian currency since the reign of her father, King George VI.
On the reverse side of 2022 Platinum Canadian Maple Leafs is an image of the sugar maple leaf. Created by Walter Ott in 1979, this image of the national emblem has featured on all forms of the Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coinage since that date.
These 2022 1 oz Platinum Canadian Maple Leafs are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in this listing come with either individual flips for shipping or acrylic tubes of 10 coins.
