The Royal Canadian Mint's Gold and Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins are known around the world for their iconic design and unsurpassed purity. They're also the world's most secure bullion coins thanks to security features like advanced engraving, laser-marking technology and precision radial lines.
Now, investors and bullion dealers have the added peace of mind of being able to instantly authenticate registered Gold and Silver Maple Leaf coins from the Royal Canadian Mint.
Introducing Bullion DNA: a fast and easy to use tool, that allows approved Bullion DNA dealers to verify the authenticity of their customer's Gold and Silver Maple Leaf coins in just seconds.
Every die used to produce the Gold and Silver Maple Leaf coins is laser micro-engraved with an anti-counterfeiting security mark: a textured maple leaf. Our registration process—digital non-destructive activation (DNA) technology—captures images encrypted with a string of code, and stores these in our secure database.
Using the specialised device, approved Bullion DNA dealers can easily verify the authenticity of registered Gold and Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins in three easy steps:
|Insert the coin into the device||Use the application to take a high-resolution photo of the coin||The DNA server matches the photo to the image in our database, instantly telling you if the coin is registered with the Mint|
The Bullion DNA technology will be available only to approved distributors and dealers, and must be sourced directly from the Royal Canadian Mint. Enter your contact information here to apply for your Bullion DNA device.
