Gold Maple Leaf Coin Details
The official bullion coin series of the Royal Canadian Mint and the Canadian nation, the Canadian Maple Leaf is one of the world’s most popular coin programs. Introduced for the first time in 1979 as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, these were the first coins in the world to rival the South African Krugerrand in terms of gold bullion demand. No other gold coin, aside from the Krugerrand, had ever been offered strictly for investment purposes.
The obverse (front) design features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. On the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, three different incarnations of Her Majesty’s profile have appeared. These include the following used to date:
1979 to 1989 – The image of a 39-year-old Queen Elizabeth II.
1990 to 2004 – A depiction of Queen Elizabeth II at 64 years of age.
2005 to Present – Susanna Blunt’s depiction of Her Majesty at the age of 79.
The reverse (back) designfeatures the image of the sugar maple leaf. Used on the reverse since the introduction of the gold version in 1979, this image has never changed. The only additions have been security measures, notably radial lines and a microscopic maple leaf privy..
Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins debuted with .999 pure gold content, but were enhanced beginning in November 1982 to include .9999 pure gold. At times, the Royal Canadian Mint has even achieved .99999 pure gold content in its Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins.
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is so popular that the Royal Canadian Mint has launched numerous variants of the coin, including but not limited to:
10th Anniversary coin in 1989.
125th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mint in 1997.
20th Anniversary coin in 1999.
25th Anniversary coin in 2004.
Hologram Gold Maple Leaf coins in 1999, 2001, and 2009.
Colorized Gold Maple Leaf in 1999 (20th anniversary edition) and 2010 to celebrate the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much is a Canadian Gold Maple worth?
The legal tender value of a Gold Maple varies by size between $0.50 to $50 Canadian dollars, but the market value greatly exceeds the tender value, and is determined by the spot price of gold.
Are Canadian Gold Maples legal tender?

Are Canadian Gold Maples taxable?
All questions regarding the taxation of Canadian Gold Maples or any gold bullion should be referred to a tax professional. Countries vary in their tax laws regarding investment in precious metals. Generally, income derived from precious metals held for less than a year is taxed as normal income. However, specific tax laws can change depending on a variety of factors. It is critical for interested investors to consult professionals in regards to specific tax laws.
Are Gold Maple coins a good investment?
Gold Maple Coins make a great investment for several reasons. Primarily, the high-quality gold content found in these coins make them excellent investment pieces. The value of gold has continued to rise steadily over time. While recessions and other economic instability can cause the value of monetary investments to dwindle, investments in gold generally have an inverse relationship with the economy and are consequently a great hedge against inflation. Furthermore, Gold Maple coins are manufactured, recognized, and guaranteed by the Canadian Government.

Technically, Canadian Gold Maples can be bought and sold anywhere in the United States. However, it is advisable to sell and purchase from registered and reputable gold bullion and coin dealers. These professional companies can be found online and throughout the United States.
Bloomberg: Gold Will Likely Soar To A Record Within Five Years
Bloomberg: Gold Will Likely Soar To A Record Within Five Years
“Gold will likely soar to a record within five years as asset bubbles burst in everything from bonds to credit and equities, forcing investors to find a haven”, reported Bloomberg last week, quoting Old Mutual Global Investors’ Diego Parrilla.
The metal is at the start of a multi-year bull run with a “few thousand dollars of upside” in a world of “monetary policy without limits” where central banks print lots of money and low or negative interest rates prevail, said Parrilla, who joined the firm as managing director of commodities last month. He’s worked at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
“As some of the excesses in other asset classes get unwound, gold will perform very strongly,” said 43-year-old Parrilla, who has almost 20 years experience in precious-metals markets. The “perfect storm scenario will mean that gold will perform best when other classes are doing worst.”
While gold has climbed 24 percent this year amid low or negative rates, it slumped more than 40 percent from its record in 2011 through the end of last year to what Parrilla called “very oversold, very distressed” levels. With the downside only a few hundred dollars, the risk-to-reward ratio is extremely asymmetric and skewed to the upside, he said in an interview on Sept. 14.
In the first of two monetary-policy announcements on Wednesday, the Bank of Japan shifted the focus of stimulus from expanding the money supply to controlling interest rates, which some economists deemed as further evidence that BOJ policy had reached the limits of its effectiveness. The Federal Reserve is also due to make a policy decision, with traders seeing the probability for an interest-rate hike at only 22 percent.
Bloomberg: Gold Rising to $4,000 An Ounce ‘Would Not Be an Unreasonable Move,’ Fund Manager Says.
Bloomberg: Gold Rising to $4,000 An Ounce ‘Would Not Be an Unreasonable Move,’ Fund Manager Says,
Stocks and bonds may be in an asset bubble, as record-low interest rates and a tremendous increase in the money supply have sent prices soaring this year. Add gold, which has risen 35% to $2,049 an ounce Aug. 5, to the list.
But Michael Cuggino, CEO of the Permanent Portfolio Family of Funds, says gold can move a lot higher. It would “not be an unreasonable move” for gold to breach $4,000, he said in an interview.
A long wait for a big move
First, take a look at this chart showing how monthly prices for an ounce of gold (per continuous gold contracts on the New York Mercantile Exchange) have moved over the past 30 years:
You can see the triple bottom from the end of 2015 through November 2018.
“Ever since then, it has been gradual move up, then some down. It moves sometimes in big chunks, gives some back, sits around and does nothing, reacts to stimulus, inflation, the value of dollar and euro ... but it has had an aggressive move this year,” Cuggino said.
Gold may extend gains as money is being pumped into the U.S. economy, the dollar is declining, and investors are fearful that inflation may return, he said.
Cuggino warned of pullbacks even during a long-term move up, as did Nigam Arora, who wrote that gold is an appropriate hedge against stocks.
The case for gold being relatively cheap
When looking back at how gold and stock prices have moved over the very long term, Cuggino said gold is still trading at an inexpensive level when compared with stocks.
Different crisis, different response
Cuggino said the quick and tremendous reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic by the federal government and the Federal Reserve was completely different from the actions taken during and after the 2008 credit crisis.
“In 2008, the fiscal policies didn’t matter much for economic gain. GDP didn’t grow because of stimuli. Monetary assistance from the Fed basically stayed in the banking system,” he said.
But now, because of programs meant to help small business, the payments made to individuals and families through the CARES Act and the loan payment deferral programs, stimulus is “much more targeted to get money out to consumers,” Cuggino said.
This points to a long-term concern and bullish possibilities for gold
“Even though we have deflation now, eventually with excess raw materials, in a growing economy, the velocity of all that money can produce inflation risk,” he concluded.
I had a wonderful experience working with this company. The representative I worked with guided me throughtout the entire process, I had no issues with my puchase and I received my metals within the time they told me I would recommend this company to anyone.
I recommend Patriot Gold group for precious metal investments. Mike who was the primary account manager for the investment transactions I made in September is very well informed and professional. Excellent and thorough group of investors. So far all of the decisions I made with Mike's advice have been profitable and successful.
I recently purchased a variety of gold and silver coins. I am completely satisfied with the service I received in dealing with Patriot Gold Group and would highly recommend them to anyone investing in precious metals.
