The Royal Canadian Mint is increasing its fight against counterfeiting of gold bullion coins with enhanced security features on its centerpiece Canadian Maple Leaf Coins. In 2015, the mint introduced radial lines to the background field of its Gold Maple Leaf coins and other metallic versions of the coins.
These unique, light-diffracting patterns make it harder for counterfeiters to replicate the coins easily. This makes the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf series one of the most secure in the world, and with .9999 pure gold content on top of that, its no wonder the coins are such a popular choice each year.

On the reverse of all 2018 oz Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coins youll find the image of the sugar maple leaf. The leaf has featured on the coins with relatively few alterations since 1979 when the gold coins in the series were introduced.
