Introduced in 1979, the Gold Maple Leaf coin quickly gained popularity as the only bullion option to the Krugerrand, which was experiencing distribution challenges as a result of the boycott of South Africa during the apartheid era. 
The gold content of gold Maple Leafs produced between 1979 and 1982 is.999. 
Its purity was increased to.9999 in 1982, making it the first 99.99% pure gold bullion coin in history.

On the back of the Gold Maple Leaf, RCM engraver Walter Ott created a fine sculpture of Canada's national emblem, the maple leaf. 
From the coin's creation, the same leaf pattern had been used. 
Queen Elizabeth II's profile can be seen on the obverse. 
Since 1979, this image has seen three updates.
2013 saw the addition of a laser-micro-engraved textured maple leaf privy mark on a small portion of the coin's reverse (maple leaf) side. 
The year of release of the coin is indicated by a digit in the center of this mark, which is only discernible under magnification. 
In 2015, radial lines were added to the backdrop of the coin on both sides.


Starting in 2014, all gold Maple Leafs featured three distinct, enhanced security characteristics: advanced engraving, laser-marking technology, and precision radial lines. The Mint combines these features with their Bullion DNA to provide instant authentication for registered 1-ounce Gold and Silver Maple Leaf coins. (Bullion DNA is not featured on fractional sizes.) This registration process features Digital Non-destructive Activation (DNA)technology that captures images encrypted with a string of codes and stores them in the mint’s secure database.

The Royal Canadian Mint’s Bullion DNA Reader technology can authenticate of Gold Maple Leaf coins dated 2014 and later, and Silver Maple Leaf coins dated 2015 and later in real-time.
