The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf is the oldest of modern 24-karat gold coins in the world, setting an international precedent for gold coins since 1979. It features Queen Elizabeth II’s bust on the obverse (front) side and, as you might expect, Canada’s symbolic maple leaf on the reverse. The gold maple leaf featured a younger Queen from 1979 until 1989 before being updated in 1990 with Susanna Blunt’s more mature design.

These coins have a nominal face value of $25 CAD and are guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint and the Canadian government. Some special editions have had up to 0.99999 or "five nine" fineness, solidifying the gold Canadian maple leaf’s reputation as a coin of exceptional quality and purity.

The Royal Canadian Mint first minted the coin in 1979, adding more security features over the years. In 2013, a smaller laser-micro-engraved maple leaf was added to the reverse side, invisible to the naked eye. In 2015, radial lines were added to the coin’s background to deter counterfeiters.

The gold maple leaf coin’s purity was raised from 0.999 fineness in 1982. With a weight of half a troy ounce and a purity of 0.9999 pure gold, these are among the purest official gold bullion coins on the market, making them highly sought after by collectors and traders alike.

2022 1/2 oz Canadian maple leaf gold coin highlights:

  • From the Canadian maple leaf series, the world's longest-running 24-karat government-issued gold bullion coins
  • 1/2 troy ounce of 0.9999 pure gold in brilliant, uncirculated condition, just as crisp and fresh as when it left the Royal Canadian Mint
  • Includes cutting-edge anti-counterfeiting security features
  • Official legal tender backed by the Canadian government with a face value of $20 CAD
  • Respected worldwide as a reliable coin of exceptionally high gold purity
  • More affordable unit price (and easier to store) than the 1 oz gold maple leaf, offering a compelling entry point for gold bullion investors on a budget!

About the Canadian gold maple leaf bullion coin series

For nearly 20 years, South Africa's gold Krugerrand was the world's only modern bullion coin. Canada's official Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) decided the world needed something better: pure gold bullion coins. In the mid-1960s, RCM began refining gold to 0.9999 purity (10x more pure than the London Bullion Market Association's Good Delivery requirements). Then, in 1982, RCM minted the first gold maple leaf, which was also the world's first 0.9999 pure gold bullion coins. Not content to rest on their laurels, in 1998 RCM upped the ante again by refining gold to "five nines" purity, or 0.99999 fine.

In other words, for every troy oz or 31.1035 grams of 0.99999 fine gold, you'll find 0.00031 grams of something that isn't gold. (It's nearly unimaginably pure. Trust me, I did the math.)

As gold prices rose, RCM began minting fractional gold maple leaf bullion coins to keep the series accessible for beginning investors and collectors on a budget.

  • 1979: the first 1 oz gold maple leaf was minted in 0.999 fine gold
  • 1982: 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz maple leaf coins first minted
    (all coins from November 1982 onward are 0.9999 pure gold)
  • 1986: 1/2 oz gold maple leaf coins were added to the mix
  • 1993: an even smaller maple leaf, the 1/20 oz, was fist minted
  • 1994: for one year only, an oddball weight, the 1/15 oz gold maple leaf, was minted
  • 2014: the 1 gram (about 1/30 oz) baby maple leaf joins the family

There are also a whole lot of special issues and one-off strikes (including the "five nines" pure gold coins, and a 100 kg million dollar coin). The list above is restricted to the RCM's bullion gold maple leaf coins only. 

Why are fractional gold maple leaf coins so hard to find?

Considering how much the price of gold has risen over the history of the Canadian gold maple leaf series (consider: in 1979, a 1 oz gold maple leaf would've cost only $500 or so!) the RCM decided to add fractional coins to its production line. This is a significant expense for the mint! They need new planchets and dies and packaging and logistics for every new coin they produce. Even so, the RCM's mission is to make gold bullion coins accessible for everyone who wants them, even if all they can afford is a 1 gram gold coin. 

Because the smaller gold coins are priced affordably, they're rarely seen outside Canada. Fractional gold maple leaf coins tend to fly right off the shelves.

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.

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.
