- In 1908, the United Kingdom’s Royal Mint officially opened a new branch in Ottawa.
- This was largely sparked by Canada’s increased need for coinage as it emerged as a nation distinct from the United Kingdom.
- In 1931, the same year that Canada became almost entirely independent from Britain, the Ottawa Mint underwent a name change, becoming the Royal Canadian Mint. Many decades later in 1979, it introduced the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin.
- This was, at the time, the sole alternative gold bullion coin to the Krugerrand. The availability was not widespread because apartheid-era South Africa was subject to an economic boycott. Since it was initially issued, the Gold Maple Leaf, has become highly popular among gold investors.
Nonetheless, the coin’s gold purity has, over time, increased from 0.999 to 0.9999 fineness. Furthermore, new security features introduced in 2013 and 2015 bolstered each coin’s authenticity. In the first instance, laser technology was used to add a micro-engraved textured maple leaf to a small part of the coin’s reverse side. This mark’s center includes the coin’s year of issue, which can only be seen when magnified. Two years later, radial lines were added to the background on each of the Gold Maple Leaf coin’s sides.
