Limited-Issue 25th Anniversary Gold Canadian Maple Leaf Now Available
Posted on 11/1/2004
The Royal Canadian Mint’s (RCM) limited-issue, .9999 gold 25th Anniversary Maple Leaf coins, graded and encapsulated, are available from North America’s leading precious metals dealer, A-Mark Precious Metals, Inc.
“The Royal Canadian Mint’s unsurpassed quality shines through each of these spectacular pieces with a special maple leaf design,” says Steve Markoff, chairman and CEO of A-Mark, which serves customers on six continents.
The Royal Canadian Mint produced 10,000 of these gold coins to celebrate its first 25 years as a world leader in bullion production. As a further enhancement, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), one of America’s top grading and certification services, graded and encapsulated the coins, adding proprietary labels that pay tribute to this unique Canadian issue.
For this 25th anniversary issue, a special reverse design was created by RCM Chief Engraver Cosme Saffioti. It featuring a maple leaf between two maple branches that form an open-ended wreath.
The NGC label on one of the first 1,000 struck coins available from A-Mark depicts a Canadian wheat field, while the balance of the issues bear the traditional red Canadian maple leaf. Both groups of coins are graded MS 70, MS 69 or Gem Uncirculated.
Rand LeShay, senior vice president of A-Mark, says, “Over the last few years, there has been an increase in demand for independently graded, modern-issue coins, and we here at A-Mark Precious Metals believe that these Maple Leaf gold coins help meet that demand.”
The Royal Canadian Mint, a global leader in minting, is recognized worldwide for its high standards of quality and craftsmanship. The RCM launched its first bullion product 1979, which immediately gained international recognition for its purity, quality and beauty.
A-Mark was founded in 1965 and today is a full-service precious metals trading company offering a wide array of products and services. The Santa Monica, California, firm is an official distributor for the Royal Canadian Mint and other government mints throughout the world, including the United States, South Africa and China.
