The 50 Dollar Maple Leaf gold coin is the Royal Canadian's (RCM) flagship bullion product. Steeped in history, the Maple Leaf has consistently been a pioneer in the production of investment coins since its launch in 1979, and still leads the way with a 99.99% gold content. The Maple Leaf was the first gold coin to contain a .9999 fineness and is the purest regular-issue gold coin on the bullion market. Manufactured with gold procured from Canadian mine, there is practically no trace of base metals. Subsequently, there are few gold coins that can match the 50 Dollar Maple Leaf as an investment asset. The Maple Leaf are also recognised as legal tender in Canada, although the global popularity means they will be accepted by dealers and coin collectors anywhere in the world. Although the face value is $50 CAD, the actual value of the coins is worth much more in the present financial climate.
The reverse of the 50 Dollar gold coins depict the iconic Maple Leaf, the symbol of Canada that was adopted by the nation in the 18th Century. The intricacies in the artwork by artist Walter Otto give the coins aesthetic value which compliments the .9999 fineness depicted on the back of the coins either side of the leaf. The reverse side also displays the country of origin together with the confirmation that the coins weighs 1oz. of FINE GOLD. The obverse features the familiar effigy of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. The 2014 edition is the right-facing profile of Her Majesty that has appeared on all Canadian circulated coins since 2003. She wears a pearl necklace and earrings but is without a crown. Around the rim of the coins are the words, ELIZABETH II, 50 DOLLARS 2014.
The Maple Leaf was first produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979 and was the second internationally recognised bullion coin that was available to private investors. The purpose of its launch was to help meet the demand for gold bullion coins and to rival the South African Krugerrand which had a monopoly on the bullion market. At the time the Krugerand had a fineness of .992, but the advanced technology used by the RCM allowed them to improve the gold content of bullion coins – the Maple Leaf subsequently boasted a purity of .995. The one ounce gold coins became an instant hit and gold more than doubled in price in the first year of issue. The Maple Leaf was soon tagged as a “buy-it-now" gold product and nothing has changed ever since other than the 24-carat gold coin has more competition from other world mints.
The RCM has a penchant for innovation and providing security for investors is high on their lists of priorities. And in 2014, the refinery raised the bar for bullion production once more by upgrading their security measures on the Maple Leaf coins. Using laser technology, Maple Leaf coins are micro-engraved with a small maple leaf privy mark with the number 14 laser-grafted into the image. The minute detail is only detectable using a magnifying glass, thus any fraudulent attempts will be instantly identified as fake by experienced dealers. The GML Security Feature earned the RCM yet another award for innovation.
