On the hunt for a precious metal that’s not only shiny and valuable, but also ethically sourced? Look no further than the 2022 Canadian Gold Single Source Maple Leaf Coin! This beautiful is one of the world’s most popular gold bullion coins and has been around since 1979 (only the South African Gold Krugerrand has been around longer). But this year, the Royal Canadian Mint has stepped up their game by introducing a special edition of the coin that’s made entirely from pure gold sourced from a single source: the Agnico Eagle’s Meliadine mine in Nunavut, Canada.
Agnico Eagle is a Canada-based company that’s grown to become the country’s largest miner of Canadian gold and the world’s third-largest gold producer overall. The Meliadine mine, which began commercial production in 2019, is the company’s second gold mine in the Kivalliq District of Nunavut and they’re committed to mining responsibly and contributing positively to the communities they operate in.
This is the Mint’s first-ever single source mine pure gold coin, and it’s paired with the exceptional reputation of the Gold Maple Leaf bullion brand, which is trusted worldwide as the purest and most secure bullion coin on the market. The coin features a privy mark of a globe-cradling hand, symbolizing the single provenance of the coin’s 99.99% pure gold and indicating that the coin is the product of a segregated refinement process that maintains the integrity of the gold throughout its refining journey, from mine to mint. Packaged in a secure presentation card, the 2022 1 oz Canadian Gold Single Source Maple Leaf ships sealed and in a plastic capsule.
On the obverse, you’ll find a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in the fourth-generation effigy of the Queen, created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. On the reverse, you’ll find a sugar maple leaf, which has been a part of the coin series since 1979 and was created by Walter Ott.
