The Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf
One of only three major platinum bullion coins ever produced, the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf is the official platinum bullion coin of Canada, first minted in 1988. Until 2002, the Platinum Maple Leaf was produced in not only the standard one ounce size, but also several fractional sizes, including a very rare and unique 1/15 ounce Platinum Maple Leaf minted only in 1994. After 2002, production ceased until 2009, when the Platinum Maple Leaf was reintroduced, albeit only in the 1 ounce Platinum Maple Leaf size. The Platinum Maple Leaf is a popular coin among investors looking to buy platinum bullion online, as the weight, platinum fineness, and authenticity of each coin are all fully backed by the Royal Canadian Mint. Canadian Platinum Maple Leafs are also IRA-Eligible Platinum bullion products for investors in the United States.

Investing in Canadian Platinum Maple Leafs
Being one of the very few platinum bullion coins ever produced, the Platinum Maple Leaf is extremely popular with collectors and investors, and even a single Platinum Maple Leaf can be a great start to any platinum bullion collection. All versions of the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf are struck from .9995 pure platinum and are legal tender in Canada, with a nominal face value of 50 Canadian dollars. Naturally, the melt value of platinum in each coin is vastly higher than this nominal face value. The face value merely serves to denote the legal tender status of each Platinum Maple Leaf coin.
