The first issue of the Canadian Palladium Maple Leaf coin was minted in 2005 by the Royal Canadian Mint. These popular bullion products which remain popular to this day are struck in almost 100 percent pure palladium. Like all bullion products made by the Royal Canadian Mint, the Maple Leaf coin bears a hallmark of superior quality and value. Its content and purity are guaranteed by the Government of Canada. While Palladium as a metal adds an intricate balance to any precious metal collection, its rarity maintains value over time.
The Royal Canadian Mint is a crown corporation that has minted all of the country’s palladium bullion coins since 1908. And has acquired global recognition for minting excellence. Today, their superior technical capabilities enable it to set new benchmarks in palladium coin designs and circulation.

Guaranteed by the Government for purity, weight and face value, the Palladium Maple is recognized legal tender in the country and is worth 50 Canadian Dollars. Moreover, the Maple Leaf is struck in pure .9995 fine Palladium.
