Description

The Royal Canadian Mint first entered the global bullion coin market in 1979 with its Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin. At the time, the worldwide quality standard was 99.9%purity. Canada’s bullion coins immediately set themselves apart on the world stage for its purity—other metal alloys were absent in our bullion. Four years later, the Mint set a new global standard, a 99.99% pure Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin. In 2007, the Mint again raised the bar by adding the world’s first 99.999% pure gold to its famous Maple Leaf family of bullion coin. Today, our bullion coins are renowned not just for their purity, but also their unrivalled security features.

This stunning collectible is based on the Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin. Unlike any of our other numismatic or bullion coins, this is the first time that a pure gold coin was struck at our facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It carries a “W” mint mark on its reverse to highlight that the coin was struck at our Winnipeg location. The coin also features a unique burnished finish, giving it a ‘matte’ look, making it stand out from our other numismatic coins.

The reverse design for this coin reproduces the maple leaf design of Master Engraver Walter Ott from the original 1979 Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin. To this day, this design remains in use on all Maple Leaf bullion coins. The reverse also features a “W” mint mark to the left of the leaf stem, indicating that this numismatic coin was struck at our Winnipeg facility, rather than in Ottawa, where numismatic coins are typically struck. The reverse and obverse of this coin are feature a unique ‘burnished’ finish. The obverse includes the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
