Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf 2020 bullion is available for pre-order now from Hard Asset Management. This high purity coin features advanced security detailing.
IN 1988, the Royal Canadian Mint launched what is considered the first widely available bullion of its type in modern times, the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf.
During the first four years, these coins were available in one ounce, as well as fractional sizes. In 2009, the Royal Mint reintroduced the Platinum Maple Leaf as only a one ounce coin. Legal Canadian tender, the Platinum Maple Leafs are .9995 fine Platinum and have a face value of $50.
Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf Proofs struck from 2015 onward also feature micro-engraved maple leaf privy mark, which shows the last two digits of the production year when magnified.
Starting in 2018, the 1 oz Platinum Maple Leaf started featuring a new form of security through the Royal Canadian Mint’s Bullion DNA program. The Bullion DNA program offers the highest security on the market for any bullion coin. Each bullion coin features a textured maple leaf security privy mark, micro-engraved with laser technology and is visible only under magnification. Etched within the maple leaf security mark are the two digits indicating the coin’s production year. Each micro-engraving is encoded, scanned and recorded at the mint for future authentication giving each coin their unique Bullion DNA.
Bullion DNA authenticates coins by scanning them with a Mint’s proprietary Bullion DNA reader verifying that the micro-engraved security mark is a match to the Royal Canadian Mint’s secure database. This process provides each Platinum Maple Leaf coin with the highest security for any coin in the market place. The Royal Canadian Mint’s unique Bullion DNA program authenticates Platinum Maple Leaf coins dated 2017 and later.
