      This is a coin investor or collector coin ?

      • A:

        Only if the price of gold increases. However time will naturally increase the value of older coins, provided the Goin coin maintains its gold value.

        A:

        Hi maple leaf fan,

        Yes, only 1,000 of these coins will be produced. It is a collectable coin, not bullion.

        The Royal Canadian Mint does not provide coin appraisals. We recommend getting coins appraised by coin dealers/appraisers. Here's the link to our dealer locator page;

        A:

        We generally only carry current year coins, or the year immediately previous. So for this year we are selling some 2015 and all 2016 coins. You may also see 2017 coins later in the year.

    • Q:

      Why does the coin say "10 DOLLARS" on it, when the gold is worth a lot more than that alone? Shouldn't it say "100 DOLLARS"?

        A:

        Hi k8,

        All of our collector coins have to have a legal tender associated, so that they are actually coins. The value of a collector coin goes beyond the metal it contains; other factors that influence the value of a coin include design, theme, rarity (mintage), certificate of authenticity, etc

        A:

        Hi Khaled,

        If you ever want to sell it you may do so at a price that you and the prospective buyer agree to. The Royal Canadian Mint does not offer investment advice relating to it's numismatic (collectible coin) products.

    • Q:

      is this coin 1ounce pure gold
      Asked on 2/5/2016 by joe from newfoundland canada

      2 answers

      • A:

        No, it is not. Please make sure you understand how much gold you are buying in grams and/or ounces. This coin is a tiny bit more than 1/4 of an ounce. Some people have difficulty understanding how much quantity of gold is in the coin. I used to teach people with math anxiety yet very bright in other areas. Just check carefully the quantity of gold before a purchase. Many sellers leave out details in order to confuse the buyer.
