About the Design:

The reverse of this .99999 pure gold coin stands as a numismatic tribute to the Royal Canadian Mint's iconic Gold Maple Leaf (GML) bullion coin. Unchanged since its debut in 1979, the single maple leaf design is engraved in outstanding detail to give it a life-like quality, and includes such textural details as the deeply etched veins that run through each of the leaf's lobes. There's an unmistakable shine to the reverse, thanks to the light-diffracting wave pattern that fills the entirety of the field. Micro-engraved with laser technology, the recurring number "150" and the maple leaf add a commemorative element that celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation, while echoing the cutting-edge security features found on the bullion coin.

Did you know…
  • In 1982, the Royal Canadian Mint was the first to introduce a .9999 (99.99%) pure gold bullion coin; its success inspired the 1988 debut of the Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin, which is crafted annually from .9999 (99.99%) pure silver.
  • The bar was raised higher in 1998 when the Mint became the world's first refinery to achieve an unprecedented purity level of 99.999%—the highest standard of gold.
  • Previously only used on numismatic coins, the first 99.999% pure gold bullion coin was introduced in 2007.
  • The Million Dollar Coin was a 100-kilogram coin crafted from .99999 (99.999%) pure gold with a face value of $1 million. Unveiled in 2007, it set a world record as the largest gold coin.
  • A purity level of 1.000 (100%) pure silver or gold produces an alloy that is considered to be too soft for coins and is susceptible to be easily damaged; thus, .99999 is the highest recognized level of purity for an engraved coin—a true masterpiece of the highest degree!
