HISTORY OF THE 1/10 oz GOLD MAPLE
In 1979. the Royal Canadian Mint issued the world's list 99% pur4k gold bullion coin the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. All that point, the only widely available gold bullion coin was the 22k South Alti can Krugerrand. After 1982, the purity was increased further to a remarkable 99.99%. The Royal Canadian Mint's insistence on using only the finest coin blanks has made the Gold Maple leaf the standard against which all other 24k gold bullion coins are judged. Over the course of the series, special security fen-lures have been added, including radial lines to make Counterfeiting difficult and a micro-engraved security mark Ther Gold Maple leaf is now available in 5 denominations containing 1, 1/2 1/4, 1/10, or 1/20 Ounces of gold. Each of these coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain on the obverse and the national symbol of Canada, the sugar maple leaf, on the reverse.
