Buy 2019 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf! Another much-awaited release from the Royal Canadian Mint, the 2019 1 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin, is now available at SD Bullion.
Launched in 1979, this annual bullion gold coin program from the Royal Canadian Mint has become somewhat of a mainstay in both coin collections and precious metals assets. Collectors love them because of their brilliant designs and quality that sets them a class apart; investors feel confident in the popularity of this series and the four-niner pure gold used to strike every coin.
Each of these gold coins contains 1 troy ounce of 0.9999 pure gold. Moreover, they also carry face values of $50 (CAD), indicating the full backing of the Canadian Government and the coins' legal tender status.
The coin's reverse bears the familiar image of a single, stunning maple leaf. Such is the attention to detail that the leaf looks lifelike -- mesmerizing those admiring the design. This side also bears a nifty security feature – designed to thwart counterfeit attempts. A series of radial lines in the background create a light-diffracting pattern – ensuring that it’s both easy to identify fakes and the design is incredible to behold.
An elegant portrait of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverses of these coins. Created by Susanna Blunt in 2003, the portrayal captures Her Majesty's right profile quite elegantly. This image is the fourth depiction of the Queen to be used on a Canadian coin.
Bullion DNATM Anti-Counterfeiting Technology is an industry first that goes above and beyond coin authentication like no other. Every die used to produce GML coins is laser micro-engraved with an anti-counterfeiting security mark. Our registration process—digital non-destructive activation (DNA) technology—captures images encrypted with an algorithm signature, and stores these in our secure database. Combined with the proprietary Bullion DNA Reader and software, the coin’s authenticity can be verified in an instant.
In 2013, the Mint introduced a new and unique security feature to confirm the authenticity of its GML coins. Derived from the same award-winning security technology applied to Canada’s $1 and $2 circulation coins, the GML security feature consists of a textured maple leaf, micro-engraved with laser technology on a small area of the reverse side of the coin. In the centre of this mark, visible under magnification, is the numeral "19", denoting the coin’s year of issue.
Radial lines in the 2019 GML’s field have been precisely machined to within microns on the master tooling to ensure reproducibility from die to die and coin to coin. The uniqueness of the line width and pitch gives this coin a characteristic look, and creates a light-diffracting pattern that is specific to this coin.
