The Canadian 1oz Gold Maple Leaf, minted by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) in Ottawa, is one of the world’s most popular 1oz gold coins, and is highly popular in gold markets in North America, Europe and Asia.
With a gold purity or fineness of 99.99% gold, the RCM gold Maple Leaf is the highest purity of any gold bullion coin on the market.
The obverse face of the 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin features a modern portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s head of state, with the coin’s face value, 50 dollars, and the year of issue, 2020, inscribed in an arc below.
The reverse of the gold coin hosts a stylised Maple Leaf, Canada’s national symbol, with the words ‘CANADA’ ‘FINE GOLD’ ‘1 OZ OR PUR’, and the gold coin’s purity 9999.
RCM 2020 1 oz Gold Maple Leaf coins features a number of security enhancements to ensure their authenticity in the form of radial lines on both coin faces, a micro-engraved maple leaf displaying the number 20, as well as the use of RCM’s proprietary BULLION DNA anti-counterfeiting technology.
Since their introduction by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979, nearly 30 million troy ounces by weight have been sold worldwide, making the secondary market for Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins one of the most liquid in the world.
As a fully-owned corporation of the Canadian Government, the Royal Canadian Mint guarantees the purity and authenticity of every Gold Maple Leaf coin leaving its minting facility.
Individual gold Maple Leaf coin orders are delivered in a plastic coin flip, while purchases of 10 gold coins are dispatched in their original RCM plastic tube.
