The Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf appeals to investors and collectors worldwide for its beauty and purity, with the classic maple leaf design in high quality .9995 fine Platinum. The Canadian Maple Leaf series is the most popular annual product from the Royal Canadian Mint and while the gold and silver versions of the coin grab most of the attention, RCM also produces a platinum and palladium version of this sought-after bullion coin.
Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf coins were introduced in 1988, the same year as the silver version of the popular coin series. However, the Platinum Maple Leaf has been impacted more by shifting prices in platinum than the gold and silver were by changing prices for those coins. In 2009, the Royal Canadian Mint reintroduced the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf, which is now available only in this 1 oz. weight. Following a high mintage of 34,650 in 2012, the volume of Platinum Maple Leafs struck by the RCM has declined through 2016.
On the reverse of the coin is RCM engraver Walter Ott’s iconic sugar maple leaf design, along with engravings identifying the nation of issue, purity of the coin, metal content, and weight.
The obverse now features the 2003 depiction of Queen Elizabeth II created by Susanna Blunt.
