The Royal Canadian Mint’s Gold Maple Leaf bullion coins are among the world’s most popular pure gold coins, with more than 25 million troy ounces sold since their introduction in 1979. The GML was also the first bullion coin to achieve the heightened standard of 9999 purity, and one of the few to ever be struck in special issues with a .99999 “five nines” purity. Celebrate its 40th year with a very special double-incuse pure gold coin with selective pink gold plating collectible featuring unique edge lettering. The coin is dated 2019 with a $200 denomination and weighs just over one ounce of pure gold. Adding to the collectability, the mintage is limited to just 350. HST/GST exempt.
The reverse features Walter Ott’s iconic maple leaf design from the original Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin released in 1979. The realistic sugar maple leaf is incuse-struck into the surface of the coin. The reverse features the words “CANADA” and “FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR” as well as the purity of “99999”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Her Majesty’s image is incuse-struck. The obverse features the date “2019” and the face value of “200 DOLLARS”. The coin also bears commemorative edge lettering with the number “40” flanked on both sides by a maple leaf, and selective gold plating on the iconic maple leaf.
