Bullion Exchanges announces the new 2017 Gold and Silver Maple Leafs are now available

The newest coins in the best-selling and highly praised bullion series, the Gold and Silver Maple Leafs, will be released by the Royal Canadian Mint on December 7th, 2016. These amazing coins are desired collectibles due to their iconic maple leaf design and leading bullion security enhancements.

First created from gold in 1979 and silver in 1988, the Canadian Maple Leafs are one of the most highly anticipated bullion coins in the market. Buyers of all types from new buyers to industry veterans are excitedly awaiting the latest issue of these desirable coins due to their high precious metal content, noteworthy design, and the latest bullion security features.

Silver and Gold Maple Leafs carry the same designs. The famous effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created by Susana Blunt in 2003, is depicted on the coin’s obverse side while the large and incredibly detailed maple leaf is engraved on the reverse side. Notably, the three most exclusive bullion security enhancements are the distinguishing hallmarks that set these coins apart. The Silver and Gold Maple Leafs carry the exquisite radial line light-diffracting background pattern, the micro-engraved maple leaf mark (containing the “17” engraving) and the Bullion DNA RCM anti-counterfeiting technology. By using this innovative technology, every die is laser micro-engraved with a special anti-counterfeiting security mark that is recorded during the coin’s registration and encrypted with an unique algorithm signature that enbles the mint to instantly verify the coin’s authenticity during verification and review.

The Royal Canadian Mint announced the official release date of these new coins on the 7th December 2016. The 2017 Gold Maple Leafs are produced from .9999 fine gold, and they are available in five weight options: 1 oz. ($50 CAD), ½ oz. ($20 CAD), ¼ oz. ($10 CAD), 1/10 oz. ($5 CAD) and 1/20 oz. ($1 CAD). The 2017 Silver Maple Leaf is made from .9999 fine silver and struck in a single size option of 1 troy ounce ($5 CAD). The new bullion coins will be available at Bullion Exchanges in regular mint packaging, and also certified options which are authenticated by the prestigious PCGS and NGC.
