The purest gold I have been able to find is a Canadian Maple Leaf,
marked 0.9999 Pure.
Check the date. I think they went from 0.999 to 0.9999 after 1984.
I have had to return one coin that was an earlier date.
It comes in one ounce, down to 0.1 ounce and .05 ounce.
An ounce is $437.00
0.1 ounce is $ 50.46
0.05 ounce is $30.03
I roll my own, its easy to do and a 0.05 ounce will make quite a bit
Put it in a rolling mill, and reduce the thickness, annealing every
When you get to the last setting on the rolling mill, that's where
it looks like the rollers are touching, you can stop, or cut the foil
in half, put the two pieces together with a sheet of tissue paper
between them, and go through the rollers one more time. This should
be just about the right thickness. I can easily cut it, punch out
shapes, pick it up off the floor when I drop it (all the time), and
its thick enough that it dosent tear when I burnish it.
The last step before I keumboo, is to scrub it (both sides) with a
mixture of amonnia and pumice to get it really clean and remove the
oils from the rolling mill.
I buy mine from Dallas Gold and Silver Exchange. They are on the Web,
and you can get the approximate price from their web site. You can
buy the coins locally from any Gold and Silver Bullion Exchange or
most local coin shops. The going price for an ounce is 5% over the
spot price of Gold for an Ounce, slightly higher for smaller sizes.
Love and God Bless
