RCM Maple Leaf, Gold & Silver Bars
THE GOLD STANDARD
The Royal Canadian Mint's Gold Maple Leaf (GML) coins are among the world's most popular pure gold coins, having sold more than 25 million troy ounces since their introduction in 1979. The GML was also the first bullion coin to achieve the heightened standard of 9999 pure.
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 (Maple Leaf side) of the coin. In the centre of this mark, visible under magnification is the numeral "19", denoting the coin's year of issue.
