The World’s First 24 Carat Legal Tender Gold Coin

The introduction of the 24 carat Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin in 1979 by the Royal Canadian Mint marked a major change in the investment gold production industry. Until 1979, all popular gold coins were made with alloys containing other metals. The reason gold coins have been minted for centuries in this manner is because pure gold is exceptionally soft, thus coins made out of pure gold would be unfit for circulation since they would be prone to dents and scratches.

The idea behind introducing the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin was the belief that investors would in the future rather hoard physical gold as a form of long-term savings than use it for settling commercial transactions, thus the need for handling would become unnecessary. To some extent this assumption has proven to be correct since in recent years the global sales of legal tender 24 carat gold coins have outpaced the sales of similar gold coins of 22 carats. Although the Canadian Maple Leaf was the world’s first gold coin to be exclusively made of pure gold, the coin originally contained a finesse of only .999. By witnessing the success of the coin, the Royal Canadian Mint decided to make another world first by improving the coin’s purity to a gold finesse of four nines. After 1982, all minted Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins have reached a purity of .9999.

The High Tech Royal Mint

Established in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint has in the past couple of decades been one of the market leaders in applying new technologies in the production of gold and silver bullion coins. Not only did they create the first legal tender silver and gold bullion coins that contained a purity of four nines, they also made the first .99999 (five nines) fine gold bullion coin in 2007, named the Howling Wolf. But the mint’s quest in perfecting high purity gold and silver coins did not stop at the one ounce weight mark. In fact, it reached new heights in 2007 by unveiling a Gold Maple Leaf coin that weighed 100 kilograms, had a gold purity of .99999, and came with a face value of one million Canadian dollars.

Moreover, in 2014 the Royal Canadian Mint set a new standard in coin security with the introduction of its latest innovation called “Bullion DNA Anti-Counterfeiting Technology” which includes a process where a unique microscopic security mark is minted onto every coin. The centre of the security mark contains the number “14” (for the year 2014) and is only visible under 5X magnification. This new technology adds another layer of protection against counterfeiting, and all Canadian Maple Leaf gold and silver coins minted from 2014 onwards will contain this new security feature.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Canada’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Canada has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Above the Queen’s effigy is her name “ELIZABETH II” and inscribed at the bottom of the coin is the nominal face value of 50 dollars and the year of mintage.

Reverse


On the reverse of the coin is Canada’s national symbol, the Maple Leaf, and above it the text “CANADA”. On each side of the Maple Leaf four nines are visible, underneath the tiny security mark is engraved and likewise the text “FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR”, where the latter part of the sentence means “1 ounce of pure gold”.

The Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin is 99.99% fine gold. This means that the coin is exclusively made of pure gold and is free of metallic impurities. The Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin weighs exactly one troy ounce (31.1 grams).
