MINT FIRST! Your coins feature platinum plating! Order today!

As Canada marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the Royal Canadian Mint is proud to celebrate our nation's incredible journey with this commemorative set of gold maple leaf fractional coins beautifully enhanced with platinum plating— our first ever!

Like the early notions of nationhood that first took root and grew into Confederation in 1867, every coin in this set gets progressively larger. The one-ounce coin shines with a platinum-plated maple leaf to celebrate Canada—a nation that is strong, free, and filled with optimism for the future!

Every coin in this set is selectively plated with platinum along its rim, and features a leaf from the red maple tree drifting down onto a bed of leaves. The set culminates with a platinum-plated leaf on the one-ounce coin—a stunning contrast against pure gold that highlights Canada's iconic national symbol for this historic 150th celebration!

Sure to be the highlight of your collection! Order today!

Special features:
  • MINT FIRST! Every coin in your set is selectively plated with platinum along its rim!
  • GORGEOUS ONE-OUNCE GOLD COIN! The one-ounce pure gold coin in your fractional set features a full platinum-plated leaf!
  • STAMPED WITH PURITY AND WEIGHT! As well, the commemorative dates “1867-2017” have been struck incuse!
  • 99.99% PURE GOLD COINS! Your coin set is GST/HST exempt!
  • STUNNING PACKAGE! Beautifully packaged in a custom leaf-shaped maple wood case!
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 600 of the entire set will be made available worldwide.

Design:

All four coins feature a design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan that celebrates Canada's 150th anniversary through a natural portrait of a Canadian icon. A single engraved leaf from a red maple tree (Acer rubrum) gently falls upon a bed of leaves against the reverse proof background. The leaf is lovingly brought to life in impeccable detail, with meticulously engraved veins that run through each lobe towards the leaf's serrated edge. The first-time application of platinum plating creates a pleasing contrast against the gold background, while adding an unexpected shine to the magnificent leaf on the 1 oz. coin and to the rim of each coin. The reverse on all four coins also include the engraved word “CANADA”, the commemorative dates “1867-2017” and the purity, which has been struck incuse.

Packaging:

Your coins are encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded custom leaf-shaped maple wood case.

Comments about Pure Gold Maple Leaf Fractional Set – A Celebration of Canada (1867-2017) – Mintage: 600 (2016):

This is a one-of-a-kind set that rarely happens. Yes, there have been 10th, 20th and 25th Gold Maple Leaf proof sets, some of them very unique, but this set is special because it commemorates Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation with a truly unique set.

The RCM has skillfully merged platinum and gold into this set, the appearance of which is really striking. The visual impact is beautiful, and the actual design of the coins has to be seen to be appreciated.

The RCM has also significantly improved the packaging of this year's GML set, placing it in a unique maple leaf-shaped box made with maple wood. It really enhances the appearance of the set.

I'm so happy to have this set. I am the proud owner of two 1967 RCM mint sets that included the $20 Gold piece, which is one of my favorite coins. The 2017 GML set is right up there with it.

Tres bien, RCM! Bon anniversaire 150, Canada!
