- - Guaranteed to have 0.1 troy ounces of 9999 fine gold.
- - Legal tender in Canada with a $5 CAD face value.
- - 24k gold coin with a fine 9999 gold purity.
- - Bought and sold with a price premium above the world’s fluctuating gold spot price.

1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coin Prices
One tenth ounce Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin prices are based on the world’s fluctuating spot gold price.
When physical gold bullion coin supplies cannot properly meet bullion investor demand, the premiums or price for 1/10th ounce Gold Maple Leaf Coins can dramatically rise over the gold spot price (e.g. fall of 2008 gold coin shortage).
Official Canadian 24k fractional 1/10 oz gold coins also have low $5 CAD legal tender face values (compared to their gold bullion coin market price). This fact assures these fine .9999 gold coins will not actively compete with Canada’s current fiat currency, the Canadian dollar (CAD).
Higher 1/10 oz Gold Coin Prices
In terms of overall sales volumes, 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins are one of the most highly sold one tenth ounce 24k gold coins currently produced by a government mint. Official 1/10 oz Canadian gold coins also demand some of the gold bullion industry’s highest gold buy prices (the price gold dealers are bidding or buying these 1/10 oz gold coins back at from investors).
Gold dealers, like us here at Kitco Metals, generally pay a price above the fluctuating gold spot price when buying 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins back from individual investors.
Canadian Maple Leaf 1/10 oz gold coins demand some of the highest gold selling prices amongst other competing government minted fractional gold coins (e.g. fractional 1/10 oz South African Gold Krugerrand coins).
In summation, a one tenth ounce Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin’s value will usually be slightly higher both when (1) buying and (2) selling them than compared to other less popular fractional 1/10 oz gold coins and fractional 1/10 oz gold bullion bars.
Gold Maple Leaf Coin Design
The one tenth oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin’s front bears the familiar right-profile portrait of Queen ELIZABETH II. Her Majesty’s effigy is framed by explicit engravings of her name, the year of coin mintage, and the $5 CAD legal tender face value of this .9999 fine 1/10 oz gold coin.
The backside of the 1/10 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coin features the iconic Canadian Maple Leaf as well as an explicit stamping of ‘9999 FINE GOLD 1/10 OZ OR PUR 9999’ (English / French respectively).
Anti-Counterfeit Gold Maple Leaf Coin Designs
In 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) introduced micro laser engravings as an advanced security element. From 2015 onwards, all RCM 24k Gold Maple Leaf coins have this security feature (1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/20 oz, 1 gram). A new finish formed of complex radial lines and a micro-engraved laser mark are some visible security enhancements the RCM has included in its line of both Gold and Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins.
The micro-engraved radial lines that have replaced the traditional bullion finish on the 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf has been so precisely printed, to within microns. This new radial finish engraving ensures consistency in die production and coin striking, and is a security technique unmatched to the Royal Canadian Mint. The specific width and depth of the lines burst out of the coin’s central images (the Maple Leaf design on the reverse, and Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse) and form a distinctive light-diffracting pattern.
The Royal Canadian Mint also recently introduced their unique Bullion DNA Anti-Counterfeiting Technology to combat fake gold and counterfeit gold coins. The Bullion DNA program at the Canadian Mint makes sure every 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin is engraved with a textured maple leaf mark. This mark is then micro-engraved with laser technology. This micro-engraving is then scanned and recorded at the Canadian Mint. Investors can then use the Mint's Bullion DNA reading product to scan their Gold Maple Leaf coin mark. This scanning will compare the original gold coin’s mark scanned in the Mint’s database to let the user know if the gold coin is indeed authentic or not.
All these unique bullion industry security features make the Royal Canadian Mint’s Gold Maple Leaf Coins some of the best gold coins to buy for investors concerned about avoiding counterfeit or fake gold items.
