1/10 oz .9999 Gold Maple Leaf sealed in plastic.
In 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the world’s first pure 24k gold bullion coin, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. At that point, the only widely available gold bullion coin was the 22k South African Krugerrand. Gold Maple Leaf coins have a fineness of .9999, making them one of the purest gold coins regularly issued in the world. The Royal Canadian Mint’s insistence on using only the finest planchets, or coin blanks, in minting these coins which has made the Gold Maple Leaf the standard against which all other 24k gold bullion coins are judged.
