The Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf is the official bullion platinum coin of Canada. First issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988, it was available until 2002 in five different denominations, all of which are marked as containing .9995 pure platinum. The bullion coin was partly reintroduced in 2009 in the form of the 1 troy ounce denomination in .9999 purity, featuring a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. These iconic coins are considered the most beautiful gold bullion coins in the world and their fractional size makes them an excellent choice for any investor.
The practice of setting coins as jewels, known as ‘Gemme Numari’ - coin gems or nummary gems - traces back to Ancient Rome. As people journeyed the world, the coins acquired from their travels made for wonderful souvenirs that could then be engraved and set to be worn as necklaces and rings. This ancient tradition of coin jewelry that has an interesting look, showcases cultural heritage and makes for great pieces of conversation appealed to global taste thousands of years later. Coin jewelry is said to bring luck and good fortune to the wearer.
