This Maple Leaf is struck in 99.999% pure gold -- the highest recognized level of purity for an engraved coin! Any purity higher than five nines would result in gold too soft to strike. The Royal Canadian Mint was the very first mint in the world to strike coins in 99.99% pure gold (1982) and achieve a purity of 99.999% pure gold (1998). This gorgeous coin displays the same primary design that has endured since 1979.
The titular leaf, symbol of Canadian heritage, unity and pride, is featured front and center with intricate detail. But, look closely and you'll see this leaf is joined by countless others in the background. Using micro-engraving technology, a pattern of patriotic maple leaf waves fills the background, alternating with Canada's anniversary number of 150. Also, for the first time ever, this Gold Maple Leaf has a reverse-proof finish. Like proof-struck coins, these are still the products of hand-selected planchets struck multiple times with polished dies.
However, these reverse proofs have lustrous mirror-like features and frosted fields -- a stunning switch!
