1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Coin 2018
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is the official bullion gold coin of Canada, and is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) who excel in high purity bullion coins. This high quality gold coin was first issued in 1979. Since that time, over 25 million ounces have been sold worldwide.
The Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Coin is one of the purest gold regular-issue coins in the world with a gold content of .9999 millesimal fineness (24 carats). That is, unlike some other bullion coins it contains virtually no base metals at all—only gold, from mines in Canada. This makes them one of the best bullion gold coins to buy. Plus they are recognized and accepted by gold bullion dealers world wide.
The obverse face of the gold maple features the beautiful side-profile portrayal of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Just below the portrait is the face value of the coin and year of issue.
While on the reverse side, the centre of the coin showcases the iconic Maple Leaf. Along with the purity and weight.
Innovative Unique Features of the Gold Maple Coin
Unique features of the 2018 gold maple coin include:
- Radial lines which emanate from the centre of the coin on both sides of the coin. These are machined precisely within microns to ensure consistent die production and coin striking. The specific width and pitch of the lines create a light diffracting pattern which makes the Gold Maple Leaf unique among other bullion products.
- On the back of the Gold Maple Leaf, there is a security feature consisting of a textured maple leaf, a security privy mark which is micro-engraved with laser technology. The numeral “18” is visible under magnification denoting the coin’s year of issue and representing the cutting edge in bullion coin security.
