The Royal Canadian Mint has made a name for itself worldwide as the respected producer of some of the most beautiful and pure gold coins available. Nowhere is this more evident than in the gold Maple Leaf coin. This coin was originally minted in 1979 as a 24 Karat, .9999 fine alternative to other coins such as the Krugerrand. The gold Maple Leaf continues to be a valued and portable asset of any portfolio.
Starting in 2013 the maple leaf now has a new security feature on each 1 oz silver and gold coins. Each coin from 2013 on now bears a visual Security Feature. Intricately micro-engraved design produced by the Mint’s innovative use of laser technology confirms the authenticity of the coin.
The obverse side of the coin bears the image of Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II in profile, as well as the inscription of her name, the face value of the coin and the year of production. The reverse side of the coin bears the image of the coin’s namesake, the maple leaf, Canada’s national symbol; additionally the reverse side features the inscription of the country of origin, the fineness of the coin, and its weight in ounces.
