After introducing a double-incuse platinum-plated Gold Maple Leaf (GML) coin in 2018, we followed it up with pink gold- (2019) and black rhodium-plated (2020) versions. For 2021, we’re taking art to all-new depths! This is the first ever Super Incuse GML, and it marks the debut of a new minting technology. Most incuse-struck coins, including the 2020 Rhodium-Plated GML coin, feature a standard incuse depth of 0.3 mm. Thanks to new technology developed by our Research and Development team, the beautiful maple leaf on this coin’s sits 1.5 mm below the coin’s surface – that’s nearly 40% of the coin gauge! It’s a must-see! And with the addition of the Arboreal Anniversary (“25”) privy mark, your Super Incuse GML is a powerful expression of a pride that runs deep for Canada’s maple tree.
Your coin’s reverse features Walter Ott’s iconic sugar maple leaf design, unchanged since the first Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin issued in 1979. For the first time ever, its famous maple leaf has been struck using Super Incuse technology, which gives it an incuse depth of 1.5 millimetres. A modified reverse proof finish ensures the focus is on the brilliant relief. The reverse also includes the engraved words “CANADA” and “FINE GOLD 2 OZ OR PUR”, as well as the purity standard of “9999” and a “25” maple leaf privy mark in honour of the 25th anniversary of the arboreal emblem of Canada, the maple. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, along with the engraved face value “200 DOLLARS” and the year “2021”.
