Is It Safe To Invest In Gold Maple Leaf Coins?

By Jack Wogan

Purchasing a Gold Maple Leaf coin you can be sure that you have invested in something valuable and safe. And safe investments nowadays are very rare. It is almost the same as buying a gold bullion coin, but this time the government of a country guarantees you an extremely high percentage of purity of material. Besides that, many numismatic collectors want it for their portfolio.

Minted by the Canadian Royal Mint as a symbol of Canada, it came as an alternative to the South African Krugerrand. In 1979 South Africa knew a troubled period of time, and an alternative to its Gold Sovereigns was needed. Originally designed by Arnold Machin, featuring the bust of Elisabeth the Second, the Gold Maple Leaf Coin is very valuable. Its purity is of 99.99%, thing that make it even more priceless. It definitely has an attractive design, easy to distinguish from other Gold Sovereigns.

Being one of the purest gold coins minted, it requires special care and storage. Being so soft, it can show traces of wrong handling very easy. If managed improperly it may get worn out or even torn apart. This is not a major inconvenient for professionals who recognize its value. And it is no regular gold bullion coin indeed.

After the original Gold Maple Leaf Coin stopped being minted, the Canadian Royal Mint minted other special issues. A Stanley Witten design, at a ,99999 purity made the Two Hundred Dollar Coin very valuable among the collectors. Then the 100 kg Gold Maple Leaf Coin was minted in 2007 and it was worth according to its name One Million Dollar (Coin). Other Olympic issues or individual releases were also minted during the years.

Being highly recognized worldwide, they can be considered a sure investment. Add to that the fact that the Canadian government guaranties its purity, and you will have an extremely valuable gold coin. It can turn your investment choices into a tranquil period for you and your business partners. Selling it shouldn’t be a trouble for you, because it doesn’t loose its value over time.

For both coin collectors and investors, the best solution are Gold Sovereigns coins, featuring a traditional engraving and made of 22 carat precious metal.
