The Palladium Maple Leaf is a bullion coin issued by the Royal Mint of Canada from 2005 to 2007 and then again in 2009. It has a face value of 50 dollars, the same value as most of Canada's bullion coinage.[2]

The coin is made of one troy ounce of palladium and was introduced as an alternative for the Platinum Maple Leaf, which discontinued circulation in 1999. The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II] while the reverse features a Canadian maple leaf. It has a diameter of 34 millimeters.[1][2][3]

During the coin's testing process, the coins were tested on two separate planchets. These planchets were known as lots "A" and "B". From these, 290 test coins were struck, struck with a mint mark to show their authenticity. All the test coins from lot A were minted with an "A" mark, while coins from lot B were minted with a "B" mark. The coins were available via purchase through a drawing made by the Royal Canadian Mint. Though they only have a face value of 50 dollars, the issue price of the coins was $1,299.95.[2]
