Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins have been available annually from the Royal Canadian Mint since 1979 and have undergone a variety of improvements over the course of the past 40 years. First and foremost, the coins improved from their original .999 content in 1982 to feature .9999 fine gold. That year also saw the introduction of the first fractional weights.
More recently, the Royal Canadian Mint has taken measures to ensure the security of its coins to combat against counterfeiting as precious metal prices increase. The first of these security features was the addition of radial lines in the background that deflect light in a unique way on the coin’s surface. Then came the addition of a micro laser-engraved maple leaf privy mark on the reverse side of Canadian Maple Leaf coins, with the date mark included within the privy mark and visible only under magnification.
Even more recently, the mint undertook the development of a Bullion DNA program. This allows you to independently verify with the mint the validity of your gold bullion purchase when buying gold coins from this series.
On the obverse of all 2019 1 oz Gold Canadian Incuse Maple Leaf coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, this design was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. The reverse face of the Gold Canadian Incuse Maple Leaf continues with the use of the sugar maple leaf design developed in 1979 by Walter Ott for the debut of this collection.
In this listing, 2019 1 oz Gold Canadian Incuse Maple Leaf Coins have a different design strike than the typical Gold Maple Leaf. A double incuse strike, the design elements on both sides of the coin are struck into the surface of the coin, sunken below the surface level rather than being engraved onto the surface as a 3D element. This further protects the design elements from possible damage or wear and tear should they ever be handled without protective packaging.
