1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coin Prices
One tenth ounce Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin values are based on the world’s fluctuating gold spot price.
When physical gold bullion coin supplies cannot properly meet bullion investor demand, the premiums or price per 1/10 ounce Gold Maple Leaf Coin 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 precious metal 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 Buy 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 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.
Higher 1/10 oz Gold Coin Sell Prices
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
From 2015 onwards, all RCM 24k Gold Maple Leaf coins have the micro laser engraving security feature (all sizes: 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/20 oz, and 1 gram coins).
On the obverse or the back of the 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins you can now find a miniature micro-engraved maple leaf below the larger maple leaf. Under magnification one can more easily see struck in the center of this mini maple leaf mark, a 2-digit number illustrating the 1/10 oz gold coin’s 21st Century year of issuance.
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 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coin is engraved with a textured maple leaf mark. This mint 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 one tenth ounce Gold Maple Leaf Coin. This scanning will compare the original 1/10 oz gold coin’s mark scanned in the Royal Canadian Mint’s database to let the user know if the one tenth ounce gold coin is indeed authentic or not.
All these unique bullion industry security features make 1/10 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coins some of the best fractional gold bullion coins to buy especially for those concerned about avoiding counterfeit or fake gold items.
