Canadian Platinum Coins
The official platinum bullion coin of Canada is the Maple Leaf in Canadian Platinum. It was first produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988 and was offered until 2002 in five different denominations, all of which have the.9995 platinum purity mark. In 2009, a new picture of Queen Elizabeth II was featured on the obverse of the bullion coin in the shape of the 1 troy ounce denomination in.9999 purity. Although the coins are legal tender in Canada, their face values are less than the market value of the metal they are made of, as is typical of bullion coins.
