Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf
First minted in 1988, the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and has long been the standard platinum coin in platinum trading. During their mintage between 1988 and 2001, Canadian Platinum Maple Leafs were available in one-ounce and many fractional sizes. In 2009, the Royal Mint reintroduced the Platinum Maple Leaf in only the one-ounce size. The Platinum Maple Leafs are .9995 fine platinum and have a face value of 50 Canadian dollars. Following the release of the Platinum American Eagles in 1988, the Platinum Maple Leaf has become increasingly popular.
