The first Maple Leaf gold struck by the Royal Canada Mint was in 1979. Since then the Mint has dispatched over 20 million troy ounces – making it one of the highest grossing gold coins on the bullion market.
Until the late 1970's, the leading investment coin was the South African Kruger which boasted a lion share of the gold market. But the Maple Leaf immediately captured the attention of investors thanks to a higher purity of gold content.
The first Maple leaf coins featured a fineness of .995, but this was improved just two years later to .999. Already recognised for their innovation and advanced manufacturing techniques, the Royal Canadian Mint went one better in 1988 and produced the first gold coins to boast a 99.99% purity.
And even then, the Mint strived for perfection and almost found it in 2007 when the Maple Leaf was manufactured with an astonishing .99999 fineness, the highest purity of any gold coin in the world.
Although the so-called five 9 coins are only used for special commemorative coins, it should be acknowledged that with the Maple Leaf gold coin, the Royal Canadian Mint has set the standards of gold bullion production as we know it today.
The Royal Canadian Mint has always been seen to strive for innovation and the 2015 Maple Leaf is further evidence of their success. Using the latest advancements in laser technology, both sides of the coin feature security techniques that are essentially impossible to copy, thus protecting investors from receiving counterfeit goods that invariable find their way on to the market.
The unique security features on the reverse can be found in the mini maple leaf privy mark which is engraved with radial patterned lines that cannot be replicated without detection from experienced dealers like the experts at CoinInvest.
