History: The Canadian Palladium Maple was first produced in 2005, acting as the first piece of Canadian, palladium bullion with a legal tender value. The RCM has subsequently struck these coins in only four other mintages: 2006, 2007, 2009 and most recently in 2015. Considering it’s unique history, it is no surprise that the 1 oz Palladium Maple continues to be an essential and elusive collector’s item.
Like the bullion it produces, the Mint has a rich history that only lends to its remarkable reputation. While the first Canadian coins were originally struck in parts of England, the Royal Mint was officially founded in Ottawa in 1908, thanks to the patronage of a handful of British noblemen and women. As the Mint continued to grow, it became overworked and antiquated, but it was not until 1976 that RCM opened the Winnipeg branch. Although discussions for this second offshoot began in the early 1960s, the project was unable to move forward due to political tensions and disagreements. After the strain had settled, and the Winnipeg facility finally opened its doors, the Royal Canadian Mint swiftly began to rise in popularity, building the reputation of excellence it holds to this day. The RCM continues to be one of the most renowned and celebrated mints in the world, producing billions of coins every year for over sixty countries worldwide.
Design: Unlike its worldwide competitors, the Canadian Palladium Maple has carried a lasting and consistent design, with only a few minor changes over the years. All coins in the Maple Leaf family have similar, if not exact, inscriptions. The obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, honoring its British affiliations. “Elizabeth II”, “50 Dollars” and the year are also engraved.
The reverse image features Canada’s national symbol, the maple leaf. The significance of this foliage has been traced back to early French Canadian settlers in the 19th century, who were enamored with the leaf, claiming it was the most majestic in the forest. The significance of the maple leaf has stood the test of time and continues to be a symbol of pride, unity and solidarity. The word “Canada” is inscribed, as well as the coin’s weight, purity and content. The skillful and detailed artistry of this design undoubtedly make it an instant classic that is desirable to both investors and collectors around the world.
Composition: Each 1 oz Palladium Maple Leaf is composed of 99.95% pure palladium in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. All Palladium Maples have their weight, purity and content assured by the Canadian Government.
Packaging Info: Each one ounce Palladium Maple Leaf will arrive in a protective, plastic sleeve for your convenience.
