Canadian Gold & Silver Maples | Wildlife Series
Gold and Silver Maples from Canada are some of the popular bullion coins on the planet to collect.The Royal Canadian Mint, or Monnaie Royale Canadienne as it is known in French, is the Crown Corporation that mints all of the country’s circulation coins. It is the only mint on earth to issue commemorative coins in a .9999 fineness, while also striking medals, bullion coins, medallions and even tokens. It provides gold and silver assay and refinery services and runs a highly-advanced technical refinery.
In 1858, Canadian coins were struck across the world in London. As the country’s population boomed, the demand for coinage also grew, and in 1901, a branch of Great Britain’s Royal Mint was constructed in Ottawa. At the onset of the Great Depression, the mint desired autonomy, and in 1931 it parted from Great Britain, becoming the newly-independent Royal Canadian Mint. It remains so to this day.
Investors are also encouraged to choose from the mint’s Platinum Bullion, Olympic Coin Series or the Silver Wildlife Series which, according to Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint, "...has been a perennial success with investors and collectors world-wide, and we are proud that the market's enthusiastic response to these coins proves once more that the Royal Canadian Mint's products are at the head of their class."
