akdrv Posted May 11, 2007 Report Share Posted May 11, 2007 The New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. (NYMEX) will host the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) for the U.S. debut of two new products to the international gold bullion market: the world's first 220-pound (100 kilogram), 99999 pure gold bullion coin with a $1 million face value and a 99999 pure one-ounce Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin at the NYMEX headquarters in Lower Manhattan on May 16. These coins, produced by the RCM in its facility in Ottawa, Canada, represent the highest achievement in gold purity in the bullion market. The RCM's Ottawa facility also operates a gold and silver refinery and produces high-quality collector coins. The 220– pound, 99999 pure gold bullion coin was originally conceived as a unique showpiece to promote the RCM's purest line of one-ounce GML bullion coins. After several interested buyers came forward, the RCM decided to make a very limited quantity available for sale. http://www.exchange-handbook.co.uk/index.c...il&id=66898 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
