Aug. 4, 2008

Santa Monica, California -- Goldline International, Inc. today announced it has acquired the very first uniquely designed 2008 .99999 pure gold one-ounce Maple Leaf coins struck by the Royal Canadian Mint. These coins have been independently certified by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), one of the premier coin grading services, to be the first seventeen hundred 2008 .99999 pure Maple Leaf coins. The overwhelming majority of these "First Strike" coins are graded in Superb Gem Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. Each graded coin will be sonically sealed in a rigid plastic container to preserve its mint condition. The PCGS certification includes a unique serial number for each coin.

The .99999 Maple Leaf was introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007 as the purest gold coin struck by a government mint. The original Maple Leaf coin was first minted in 1979 and contained .999 pure gold. In 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint increased the Maple Leaf's purity to .9999 (or 24 karat), setting a new benchmark for gold bullion coins. The Royal Canadian Mint raised the standard once again with its .99999 Maple Leaf. The .99999 Maple Leaf features a new, elegant maple leaf gracing the reverse and a 12-sided design.

"When Canada increased the gold content of the Maple Leaf to .99999 fine, it set an unsurpassed standard for gold investment products," said Mark Albarian, President and Chief Executive Officer of Santa Monica-based Goldline International, Inc. "The independently graded and certified 2008 First Strike .99999 Maple Leafs offer collectors and the investment community a special gold coin at a time when investors are seeking a traditional safe haven hedge against inflation and a falling dollar."
