More Canadian Gold Maple Leafs are sold every year worldwide than any other gold coin and the population of Gold Maple Leafs is only surpassed by the gold Krugerrand.

Coins minted between 1979-1982 have a gold purity of at least .999. In 1980-1982, both 999 pure coins and 9999 pure gold coins were minted and beginning in 1983 the RCM switched to exclusively minting 9999 gold coins.
