Guaranteed by the Government of Canada and traded in world markets since 1979, gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins have become some of the most desirable bullion coins in the world today.
Pure 99.99% Pure Gold
The Royal Canadian Mint pioneered the concept of minting a gold coin without the need for a strengthening alloy in order to produce the gold Maple Leaf in such high purity. Such purity proved to be extremely popular with collectors and investors worldwide.
With heavy emphasis on anti-counterfeit measures, the 2018 Maple Leaf Gold Coins feature radial lines that were precisely machined to within microns on the master tooling from Royal Canadian Mint. In addition, a main security highlight on this coin is a micro-engraved textured maple leaf done with laser technology on the reverse side of the coin. Only visible under magnification or a very sharp eye for detail, the number “18” can be seen which denotes the year of issue for the coin.
Maple Leaf Design
The design of the Maple Leaf has been almost unchanged since the day it was launched.
Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse side of the coin while the reverse depicts a single Canadian Maple Leaf which also states the gold purity of the coin in both English and French, the national languages of Canada.
Canadian Legal Tender
The Canadian Royal Mint first struck the gold Maple Leaf coin in 1979 and since then it is the official gold bullion of Canada and a legal tender.
