1oz Canadian Maple Leaf Platinum Coin Information

As with all of its Maple Leaf coins series (gold & silver), the design of both faces of the coin has not really changed since it was first produced in 1988. The only modifications have been a few updated portraits of Queen Elizabeth II. This resilience of design has helped to make this coin series one of the most recognisable in the world.

Buy Platinum Coins 1oz Canadian Maple Leaf Obverse

The obverse of the platinum coin features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. It carries the following inscriptions:

  • 50 DOLLARS
  • The coin's year of mintage
  • On the Queen's collar, the initials D.H. (1990-2002) or SB (since 2009)

The reverse of the coin features the world famous leaf of Canada's Maple tree. It's inscribed with:

  • 9995 on each side of the maple leaf
  • 2015 and onwards, the security laser engravings

The 1 troy ounce Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf coin is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and was first struck in 1988 with all denominations being minted to a fineness of 99.95%. Unlike the 1 oz gold and silver Maple Leaf coins, production of the 1oz Platinum Maple Leafs has been intermittent, with nothing being minted between the years 2003-2008 inclusive with smaller denominations being produced until 2002.

When you buy platinum coins from us we can only offer the currently minted 1 ounce coins for trade and we can't guarantee the year of mintage.

It was introduced to the 1 ounce platinum Maple Leaf coins after its successful launch with the 1oz Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin.

If the coin that you buy from us is from 2015 onwards then you can easily have it tested at authorised dealers / distributors, but in North America only.
