Containing 1 oz of .9999 fine Gold, the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf is considered one of the most beautiful Gold coins in the world, appealing to both investors and collectors alike for its beauty and high purity. They are a beautiful tribute in design to the Maple Leaf, one of Canada's most recognizable symbols.
Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins are one of the longest-running Gold bullion series in the world today. Introduced in 1979, this series has become an icon with its continued use of the sugar maple leaf design on the reverse and its evolving effigies of Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse. The coin began as only .999 fine Gold before increasing it's purity in 1982 to the .9999 purity you see today.
The Royal Canadian Mint's Bullion DNA Program:Since 2015 The Royal Canadian Mint's Bullion DNA program has offered the highest security on the market for any bullion coin. Each bullion coin features a textured Maple Leaf security privy mark, micro-engraved with laser technology, and is visible only under magnification. Etched within the Maple Leaf security mark are the two digits indicating the coin's production year. Each micro-engraving is encoded, scanned, and recorded at the mint for future authentication, giving each coin their unique Bullion DNA. (Photo curtesy of SilverTowne LP)
