Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
U.S. precious metals exchange Gold Coin has announced plans to sell one-ounce Canadian Maple Leaf gold bullion coins at spot price from Friday, May 3 through Friday, May 10, 2013, to commemorate the unveiling of the famous 100-kilogram gold Maple Leaf coin. The gigantic Maple Leaf has a face value of $1 million and based on the current spot price of gold is worth over $4.6 million.
Stewart Lawson, vice president of marketing for Gold Coin, believes that the promotion is a sound way to introduce individuals to both the investor and collector sides of the gold coin market. “Only a handful of the [100-kilogram] coins have ever been produced, and the fact that Maples come from an institution as renowned as the Royal Canadian Mint says a lot about the quality and craftsmanship of each piece, be it a one-ounce version or a 100-kilo coin,” Lawson says. "Canadian gold coins are 24-karat gold and their weight and purity is guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint. Lots of investors prefer these coins over [American] Eagles because of the low premium over spot, and we hope this promotion will draw some new investors into the market."
The promotion will last from 9am-6pm CST, beginning Friday, May 3 and ending Friday, May 10, 2013, or when 1000 ounces of the Maple Leafs coins have been ordered. Only one-ounce versions of the Maple Leaf gold coin are eligible for the promotion and there is a 10-coin minimum and a 20-coin maximum per household.
