Canadian Maple Leaf 1 Ounce 24 Karat Gold Coins

The 24 karat gold one ounce Canadian maple leaf coin! The picture says everything. This is the absolute best looking gold bullion coin around. The color and shine of this coin is absolutely stunning. The reason this coin looks so great is twofold: First, the coin contains 1 troy ounce of pure 24 karat gold meaning there are no alloys to change the color as with Krugerrands and American Eagles. Second, the way the coin is finished makes it really shine. Because it is so amazing to look at and hold, I highly recommend that each bullion coin portfolio contain at least one Canadian maple leaf.

The Premier 24 Karat Gold Coin

The maple leaf coin is pure 24 karat gold. Gold is a soft metal and susceptible to scratches and dents. When you handle the maple leaf, make sure to use extreme care. There is a very good reason Krugerrands and American Eagles are 22 karat gold and that is to protect against scratches and dents. Some of the newer date maple leafs come in a protective plastic sleeve. Make sure to leave the coin in the plastic sleeve so it stays is super condition. If you have loose maple leaf coins, make sure to handle them carefully.

Diversify With 24 Karat Gold Maple Leaf Coins

I really believe in the power of diversifying within your gold bullion coin portfolio. In the spirit of diversification, make sure to own both 22 karat and 24 karat gold coins. To achieve this goal, the Canadian maple leaf is one of the best candidates since it is long recognized as the leading 24 karat coin. Also, there is a new variety of the Canadian maple leaf: a 0.99999 (yes, that's 5 9s) fine gold coin. This coin is in high demand, however, and may cost you a premium. For now, my suggestion is to stick to the traditional 0.9999 (that's 4 9s) version due to lower mark up over spot gold price. If you are on a limited budget (like myself), the maple leaf comes in the standard 1/10, 1/4, and 1/2 ounce varieties. Additionally, there is a new 1/20 ounce version as well. I expect the 1/20 ounce bullion gold coins to do very well as gold prices appreciate and more investors are interested in lower denomination coins. It's a great time to start accumulating 1/20 ounce coins. Want to see more images and learn more? You may wish to check out images of the 1/4 ounce gold maple leaf I just purchased.
