Great Britain gold coins begin with the sovereign. First minted in 1489, the Sovereign weighs in at almost 8 grams. There is also the half sovereign, weighing 3.99 grams. In 1987, Great Britain introduced the Brittania, which comes in 4 sizes (tenth ounce, quarter ounce, half ounce and one ounce).
Canada's gold Sovereigns were issued from 1908-1919 and weighed the same as their British counterparts. Canada also issued $5 and $10 gold coins from 1912-14. At .900 purity, these weighed 8.36 and 16.72 grams, respectively. In 1979, Canada introduced the Maple Leaf, still one of the most popular gold bullion coins. Though the early years only included the one ounce size, currently the Maple Leaf is minted in the most popular 4 sizes (tenth ounce, quarter ounce, half ounce and one ounce).
