Currency Exchange International is now offering gold bullion coins (Gold American Eagle Coin 1oz. and Gold Canadian Maple Leaf 1oz.) and gold bars (Royal Canadian Mint Gold Bar (Wafer) 1oz.) for sale to all of our customers. Gold bullion provides an easy way to invest in precious metals, while at the same time holding onto a physical asset that is highly liquid and recognized around the world. Holding investment-grade gold will not only give you the peace of mind of owning a hedge to inflation asset, but it will also diversify your financial portfolio greatly. Each of our gold coin’s purity is backed by either the U.S. or Canadian government, depending on the mint producing the product, providing comfort and security to those who hold them.
First released in 1986, the Gold American Eagle coin has become one of the most popular bullion coins in the world since the implementation of the “Gold Bullion Act of 1985”. The coin’s front features the Statue of Liberty as depicted in the famous $20 gold piece between 1907-1933. The reverse depicts a family of bald eagles and includes “United States Of America”, its weight in ounces and its legal tender value of $50.
Produced by the United States Mint, this coin is made up of .9167 (91.67%) gold and is the only gold bullion coin whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. Created using gold mined in the United States, it‘s currently one of the world’s leading gold bullion investment coins. Undergoing a specialized minting process, the gold is then melted and repeatedly struck so that the images seem to float above a mirror like field on both the front and back side of the coin. The American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin is one of the most sought after coins in the world.
First released in 1979, the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coin has become one of the most desirable bullion coins in the world today. The front of the coin features a maple leaf, the national symbol of Canada for which the coin derives its name. The reverse depicts Queen Elizabeth II to represent the constitutional monarch of the Commonwealth realms and the governor of the Church of England.
Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM), this coin originally contained .999 (99.9%) fine gold until 1982, when the amount of gold per bullion increased to 24 karats at .9999 (99.99%) purity. This coin is currently the purest gold coin in the market. In minting, the coin first gets melted and transformed into a continuous strip. The size, weight, thickness and edges go through a rigorous inspection process focused on perfection. As an extra layer of protection, any coins made in 2015 and after contain a micro-engraving security feature to ensure that no replicas are being made. Due to this, the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coin has become one of the most recognizable coins in the world.
Since 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) has been responsible for minting bullions and collectible pieces alike for Canada and for nations around the world. It’s also the only accredited gold refiner in North America manufacturing minted gold investment bars. The RCM’s reputation and standard of quality make these bars a wise and convenient choice for the portfolios of investors looking to increase their gold as well as for tangible asset purposes.
These 1 oz. bars of .9999 (99.99%) gold produced by the Royal Canadian Mint are refined to the highest standards of fine gold. Each bar contains 24 karats of pure gold and is created in a rectangular design with rough round edges. The front of the bar is inscribed with the words Royal Canadian Mint in English and in French. Below you will find 1 oz. of .9999 (99.99%) pure fine gold engraved with a unique serial number known as the ingot’s certified registration number.

The purer the coin, the softer it is – a characteristic of gold. The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf and Royal Canadian Mint Gold Bar are purer gold, therefore they are softer. The Gold American Eagle has more elements to it to make it stronger and more resistant to scratches and handling marks. However, all products are 1 troy oz. of gold and thus the same amount of gold is in each.
One troy ounce is exactly 31.1034768 grams. The troy ounce is about 10% heavier than the international standard ounce which is equal to 28.349523125 grams.
The market for gold products is based on gold’s market price. Since each gold coin and bar has an independent supply and demand as well as manufacturing process, the prices do vary.
