The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is one of the most trusted gold bullion coins in the world thanks to the combination of the Royal Canadian Mint's refining capacity and innovative security features. The extra-pure .9999 fine gold coin is back with the 2016 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Bullion Coin! Each coin contains a total of 1 troy ounce of pure gold and is legal tender with a face value of 50 Dollars.
The reverse design uses Walter Ott's depiction of a maple leaf. The leaf is shown in fantastic detail, with a textured surface and well-defined veins. This image has appeared on the Gold Maple since the series was introduced in 1979. The issuing nation "CANADA" is found at the top rim, while the purity "9999" is placed on either side of the maple leaf. The bottom rim features the inscriptions "FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR." As a security feature, each coin also has a micro-engraved miniature maple leaf privy mark with the number "16" etched within the leaf.
The obverse is graced by Susanna Blunt's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II facing right. "ELIZABETH II" is inscribed along the rim above, while the denomination "50 DOLLARS" and the year-date "2016" are both found at the bottom rim. Both sides of the coin use an attractive radial line finish, which not only is an anti-counterfeiting measure, but also gives each coin's surface an appealing light-diffracting effect.
The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) is known for the exceptionally high quality of its bullion products, but the mint has also striven for the most secure anti-counterfeiting technology in the industry. This is why all 2016 1 oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Bullion Coins have a radial line finish and bear a micro-engraved privy mark. If you're looking for legal tender gold at a great price, get your 2016 Canadian Gold Maple Leaf today!
