    Nearing the end of its first decade in production, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin entered a period of sustained declines in demand for the coins. What started in 1987 would culminate in an early low point for the series within the next decade as the series hit a mintage of just 143,000 coins in 1996. Now, 1987 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Coins arrive in protective plastic flips!
    • 9th year of availability in the 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Series!
    • Total mintage of 978,000 coins!
    • Contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure gold.
    • Issued a face value of $50 (CAD) by Canada.
    • Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse.
    • Sugar maple leaf features on the reverse of the coins.

    In 1979, the Royal Canadian Mint offered the 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin to investors for the first time. Offered as an alternative to the South African Gold Krugerrand, a coin series that had been available as the only gold bullion coin since 1967. With economic sanctions and boycotts looming for South Africa in the late 1970s and 1980s, other nations began to introduce new gold bullion coins.

    The Royal Canadian Mint was the first, offering the 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf with .999 purity from 1979 to 1982. In 1982, the series delivered .9999 purity in the 1 oz weight and the Royal Canadian Mint added 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins to the collection. In 1986, the 1/2 oz weight was introduced. This makes the 1987 release the first to feature the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins together in the same year.

    Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of 1987 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in the 1964 design from Arnold Machin. The Royal Canadian Mint used this design from 1979 to 1989 on the Gold Maple Leaf and it features the Queen at the age of 39.

    A sugar maple leaf is featured in the reverse design of the 1987 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf Coin. This image of the national emblem is shown on the reverse of all coins in the series, from the gold and silver coins to the platinum and palladium coins. This design was created in 1979 by Walter Ott.

    These 1987 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins are available for purchase with protective plastic flips. The mintage of 978,000 coins was the first below 1 million since 1983 and the highest the series would see until 2001.

When refused, the package(s) will return to JM Bullion for inspection.

    When will I receive my order?+

    When you will receive your order depends primarily on three factors

    1. When we receive your payment (checks and wires must be initiated/sent by you).
      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.
      • UPS 3-Day Air is the fastest and most reliable method of shipping. These are usually delivered in 1-3 business days once in transit.
      • USPS is less consistent in both transit time and tracking accuracy.
    What happens if my order is lost in transit?+

    All packages shipped by JM Bullion are covered by insurance subject to certain conditions. In the unlikely event that your order is Lost in Transit, you need to contact us immediately. Lost in Transit is defined for the USPS as tracking not having updated in 5 or more calendar days. For UPS, it is 3 calendar days. You must contact us within 7 days since last tracking for USPS and 3 days since last tracking for UPS. If you do not contact us by these timeframes, insurance will not cover the package.

    Once you contact us, we research the shipment with the carrier and begin the claim process. The claims process can take 30 or more days to resolve, and many Lost in Transit shipments end up getting delivered late. If the package is delivered, you must notify us within 24 hours.

    See also Section 13 of our Terms and Conditions.

    What happens if my order is damaged in transit?+

    Though unlikely, if your order is damaged during transit and/or any items are missing we require you to contact JM Bullion immediately so we can begin the claims process. If you have taken possession of a shipment that is damaged and/or is missing items, you have 2 days (48 hours) from the date of delivery to contact us as stated in our Terms and Conditions.

Please note, per our Terms and Conditions, once a package shows delivered, our responsibility ends. Please be available and attentive to receive the package when the courier arrives. Due to COVID 19, couriers are not always getting the signature.

    Please note that JM Bullion will not be responsible for reimbursements or insurance claims on packages that are successfully delivered as addressed. Our liability and insurance cease the moment the package is signed for or left at the specified delivery address.

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, Ethereum, Ripple, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history.

If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.
