Gold Maple Leaf: A coin that sets new Standards
The Gold Maple Leaf started to be minted in 1979 by the well-known Canadian Royal Mint (RCM). The Maple Leaf 1oz has instantly become a huge success. Moreover, the Maple Leaf 1oz gold coin can be considered as a pioneer of the bullion gold coins. The Canadian Maple Leaf has always had a fineness of at least 99.9% and therefore a level of purity of 24 carats. Furthermore, it was the first bullion coin that reached a level of purity of even 99.99%, whereas, the South African bullion coin that had dominated the market for years has only a level of purity of 91.67%.
The Perth Mint (Australia) and The Austrian Mint followed this pioneering achievement and started to manufacture bullion coins with a level of purity of 99.99% as well.
The Maple Leaf weighs 1 troy ounce (31.10 grams) of pure gold. The consequence of being made out of pure gold is that the Maple Leaf 1oz gold coin can easily be scratched and handling marks are also noticeable.
The Maple Leaf 1oz gold coin is the official bullion gold coin of the Canadian government. Even though it is an official method of payment in Canada, this coin and its other denominations are not really considered as circulating coins because they are sought after by gold investors and by numismatists.
Silver, Platinum and Palladium Maple Leaf
The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Bullion Coin was launched by the Royal Canadian Mint for the first time in 1988 and has ever since been issued on a yearly basis. Containing one ounce of 99.99% fine silver, the Maple Leaf Silver is the purest silver coin in the world. The Maple Leaf Silver belongs to the most famous bullion coins worldwide.
The Silver Maple Leaf was created due to the huge success of the Gold Maple Leaf, and carries the same obverse (front) and reverse (back) design. Its annual production level is based on real demand.
In addition, the RCM minted the Platinum Maple Leaf from 1988 to 1999, and they have started minting it again in 2009.
The Palladium Maple Leaf was minted during the years 2005 to 2010.
Maple Leaf Design
The reverse of the Maple Leaf shows a beautifully designed Maple Leaf, which is a Canadian symbol from which the coin derives its name and that has turned this coin into one of the most popular bullion coins. At the top of the coin, the issuing Country is engraved, “CANADA”, and two other inscriptions in English and French, due to the official Canadian bilingualism: “9999 FINE GOLD” and “1 OZ OR PUR 9999”.
The head side of the Maple Leaf 1oz coin shows a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, official head of the Commonwealth, to which Canada belongs, realized by Arnold Machin and it has changed as Her Majesty aged. The inscriptions are: “ELIZABETH II”, the face value (“50 DOLLARS” for the 1oz gold coin) and the minting year, currently "2014".
The coin design of the Maple Leaf is consistent. However, the portrait of Elisabeth II has changed several times due to age-related changes of the monarch's appearance. Since 1990 the indication of the gold fineness is a little closer to the Maple Leaf.
Maple Leaf: You benefit from maximised security against counterfeiting.
Maple Leaf coins are generally very difficult to forge because their exact dimensions and their exact weight can be checked easily at any time.
To ensure and to increase the security for buyers, the RCM has provided the Gold Maple Leaf with an additional optical security feature since 2013. This visual security feature, produced with the innovative use of laser technology, consists of an intricate micro-engraved design of a Maple Leaf with the indication of the year of issue in two digits, for example "14" for 2014, and was firstly used by the RCM in 2012 for coins in circulation.
