The Canadian Palladium Maple Leaf Coin was first produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in November of 2005. It enjoyed a very limited mintage until 2007 and then briefly again for one year in 2009, giving it one of the shortest releases in Canadian history. This coin also holds the distinction of being the first Canadian coin to ever be minted from palladium. Considering its unique history, its not surprising that it has become such a highly popular and elusive collectors item. Each maple leaf coin has been minted from 1 troy ounce of the finest 99.95% pure palladium. It measures 33 mm in diameter and 2.87 mm in width. Individual coins currently have a face value at 50 Canadian dollars.
- Contains 1 oz of .9995 pure palladium.
- Minted by the Royal Canadian Mint.
- Features the popular Maple Leaf design.
- Carries a face value of $50.
As with other maple leaf coins, the images featured on the Palladium Maple Leaf Coin speak to the hearts and spirit of the Canadian people. The eponymous maple leaf, which has become a symbol of peace and tolerance across Canada, is featured on the front of the coin. The reverse side honors its former British affiliation with an engraved portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Despite its seemingly simple design, a closer look at these images reveals a meticulous attention to detail. From the intricate vein pattern of the maple leaf to the uncanny expression on HRMs face, collectors are sure to appreciate skillful engraving it took to capture every design element.
