Bullion Coin

1979 - Present



Introduced 1979, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins minted during the first three years had a gold purity of only 0.999.

In 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint's refining technology increased the purity of every Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin with .9999 fine gold, making it one of the purest gold coins regularly issued.

Bullion Coin



Obverse

The 2023 Gold Maple Leaf is the last year of Queen Elizabeth II's effigy on the obverse side.

To commemorate the Queen's reign, the Royal Canadian Mint included the double date of her reign, 1952∙∙∙∙2022.

The four pearls between the dates symbolize the Queen's four effigies that have graced Canadian Coins since her coronation in 1952.

Note: Only three different effigies of Queen Elizabeth II graced the obverse side of the Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin, as seen here.

Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf
Security Mark

gold maple leaf security feature

In 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) started to add a Security Mark to the the reverse side of the 1oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin.

The Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf security mark was designed and produced by the Royal Canadian Mint laser technology. 

Inside the laser-engraved maple leaf is a "numeral" indicating the coin's "Year of Issue," which is more easily visible under magnification.

Note: The Royal Canadian Mint didn't start to put the security mark on the Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin until 2014.

Bullion DNA
Anti-Counterfeiting Technology

Inside each Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf on every Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coin is a unique imprinted security mark.

No two security marks are the same; the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) has given each bullion coin its own DNA code, which can only be cross-referenced with the RCM for authentication.


MINT SHIELD
