Renowned 99.99% pure Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins now available in new one gram size, packaged in sets of 25 individually serialized coins
OTTAWA, Sept. 24, 2014 /CNW/ - The Royal Canadian Mint's Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins, one of the world's most sought-after pure gold bullion coins, is now available in a one gram format that is highly attractive to first-time precious metal buyers and seasoned investors alike. Packaged in sets of 25 legal tender coins, the Mint's new Maplegram25™ product is as refined in the precise engraving of the iconic Gold Maple Leaf design in minute scale, as it is for its signature 99.99% purity.
"The Royal Canadian Mint always strives to innovate and diversify its products to offer customers new ways to own high-quality precious metals which set new standards for the global bullion industry," said Marc Brûlé, Interim President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. "The Mint's new Maplegram25TM product gives investors a novel way to purchase Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins in a highly liquid format that preserves and celebrates all the trademark qualities of the Maple Leaf brand."
The distinctive one gram legal tender pure gold coins in Maplegram25TM retain a bullion finish and are packaged in a divisible blister card that individually serializes each coin for added security and authenticity. The card fits in a branded protective sleeve on which is printed an assay certificate certifying the purity and weight of the coins, which are Canadian legal tender with a 50 cent face value. Maplegram25TM will be produced to demand and is now available through bullion dealers worldwide.
In keeping with a distribution model common to the world's major issuers of bullion coins, the Mint does not sell bullion directly to the public. Interested buyers are encouraged to contact a reputable bullion dealer to order the Royal Canadian Mint's Maplegram25TM.
