The Royal Canadian Mint’s gold maple leaf coin was launched in 1979 as a competitor to the first modern gold bullion coin, the Krugerrand. Maple leaf coins were minted in a single 1 oz weight, at first (just like the Krugerrand). 

But not everyone can afford to buy gold bullion an ounce at a time! In 1993, the mint expanded the maple leaf line-up to 1/20 oz gold coins. Suddenly, people who thought they could only afford silver were able to buy gold coins – and they did! 

Canadian gold maple leaf coins are recognized, collected and traded around the world, from Shanghai to Stockholm. Thanks to their decades-long mintage history, these fractional weight gold coins have an active market which makes these gold coins easy to resell should you ever want to. Their 0.9999 pure gold content is considered a benefit for many buyers, even though that same characteristic makes them easily scuffed, scratched or otherwise damaged. Handle with care!

We have a number of 1/20 oz gold Canadian maple leaf coins, with mintage years varying from 1993-present (including the current year). Although all share a 0.9999 pure gold content, we can’t guarantee a specific year or design. We’ll fulfill your order from the coins we have on-hand. Because these can change, the mintage years you receive may change from order to order (or within the same order). 

Obverse designs over the years have changed a bit. Depending on the year of issue, you’ll see:

  • 1993-2003: Dora de Pedery-Hunt’s depiction of Her Majesty at 64
  • 2004+: Susanna Blunt’s right-profile portrait of a 79-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, the first numismatic image of the Queen without a crown

On the reverse, regardless of the year of mintage, Walter Ott’s timeless and amazingly-lifelike design of the sugar maple leaf, Canada’s national symbol, always appears on the reverse. 

These 1/20 oz Canadian maple leaf gold coins, in recent years, have incorporated many anti-counterfeiting features:

  • Micro-engraved miniature maple leaf with year of mintage (visible only under magnification) - 2013+
  • Bullion DNA™ authentication at any participating location - 2015+
  • Radial lines in the background (or field) of both sides of the coin, precisely machined to within microns – which have the delightful side-effect of providing a spectacular shimmering effect - 2015+

All in all, this fractional Canadian maple leaf gold coins is a good balance of size and value, affordability and value.

Fractional maple leaf coins sell out pretty quickly, especially during times of economic upheaval when everybody wants to get their hands on real gold. Don’t assume we’ll always have them in stock… Avoid disappointment by getting yours today!

1/20 oz Canadian gold maple leaf mintage figures

Unfortunately, the Royal Canadian Mint hasn’t released mintage figures for this gold coin since 2013. Even so, as you can see from the numbers below, there just aren’t very many of these little maple leafs! RCM makes significantly fewer 1/20 oz gold maple leaf coins annually than 1 oz coins – only about 10-20% as many. Their affordable price and relative scarcity makes these fractional gold coins extremely hard to find…

Yes, on a case-by-case basis. If you need to change your shipping address, please call in at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday and speak with a representative.

How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.

Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time.

How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes.

How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships.

Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.

Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box.

Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.

Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California. We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.

Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.

Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.

Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.

My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection.
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
