Incuse Gold Maple Leaf Bullion from the Royal Canadian Mint. As a follow up to last year’s extremely popular, inaugural Silver Incuse Maple Leaf, the mint is launching a Gold version for 2019, an RCM first.

DEALERS Pre-ORDER NOW: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com

The Royal Canadian Mint has never produced a gold coin with an incused strike on both sides. (“Incuse” means the image struck/recessed into a coin as opposed to the standard raised relief.) The unique and unusual sunken format is challenging to produce, leading few mints to creating such coins. Thus a “double” incuse is highly unusual in the marketplace.

The now famous Walter Ott-designed maple leaf image is incused into the reverse of this Gold Maple Leaf bullion, giving it a unique look. The obverse image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is also incuse struck!

Enhanced Security
The RCM continues their landmark security measures with the Incuse Maple Leaf coins. Bullion DNATM Anti-Counterfeiting Technology is far beyond basic coin authentication. Every die used to produce GML coins is laser micro-engraved with an anti-counterfeiting security mark. Digital Non-destructive Activation (DNA) is an advanced technology that captures images encrypted with an algorithm signature. These images are saved in RCM’s secure database. Dealers can then use the proprietary Bullion DNA Reader and software to instantly verify an RCM coin’s authenticity.

DEALERS – Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, the entrance to Westminster Abbey was lined with ten statues who “guarded” the way. These fantastical creatures – The Queen’s Beasts – were a line up of heraldic, and in some cases mythic animals, who symbolized the centuries of heritage that the young queen had inherited.

The Queen’s Beasts Collection of coins from The Royal Mint are inspired by these ancestral beasts of that have watched over the Queen throughout her reign, from coronation to Sapphire Jubilee.

The Falcon symbol descended from the reign of Plantagenet King Edward III who chose the symbol to embody his love of hawking. The white Falcon statue at The Queen’s coronation in the 20th century held a shield with a badge depicting a second white falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock. The fetterlock and the falcon were popular emblems in the Houses of both York and Lancaster, as they had descended from Edward III’s younger sons John of Gaunt and Edmund of Langley. The open fetterlock can only be used by a noble with a claim to the throne.

The Falcon is said to be the favorite badge of Queen Elizabeth I.

DEALERS: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The Libertad series was redesigned in 2000 to make them even more attractive to the public. The primary difference is the image of the Angel of Independence monument on the reverse side.

The obverse of the three largest sizes also received a makeover. The redesign features the National Shield in the middle surrounded by different eagle designs used on National Shields throughout Mexican history, including the eagle shown on the Codex Mendocino. The 1/10 and 1/20 coins kept the same obverse image.

There is not a set face value on any of the Mexican Libertad coins; making them some of the few bullion coins, along with the Krugerrand, that have no set face value, even so the coins are considered legal tender.

Banco de México is the central bank of Mexico. By constitutional mandate, it is autonomous in both its operations and management. Its main function is to provide domestic currency to the Mexican economy and its main priority is to ensure the stability of the domestic currency’s purchasing power.

The Libertads are struck for the Banco De Mexico by The Mexican Mint (La Casa de Moneda de México) which is the national mint of Mexico and is the oldest mint in the Americas. It was established in 1535 by the Spanish viceroy Antonio de Mendoza by a decree from the Spanish Crown. The mint is one of the institutions with the longest tradition in Mexico.

These pure gold coins were authorized by the Presidential $1 Coin Act on December 22, 2005.

The original nickel design was first minted in 1913 to salute the spirit of the American West. The Native American who is depicted on this gold bullion coin is a composite of three different American Indians. The sculptor, James Earle Fraser, identified two of them before his death as Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Many people have claimed that they sat for the piece, but Fraser said he was not able to recall the third person. As for the buffalo? Many believe “Black Diamond,” the New York Zoological Gardens’ buffalo was the model for the bison on the reverse.

American Eagles chief unique property is that they are the only gold bullion whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. American Eagles are also valid for precious metals Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).

The obverse (front) design is inspired by artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ celebrated $20 gold piece that was minted from 1907-1933. It is considered by many to be one of America’s most beautiful coins.

The reverse was designed by sculptor Miley Busiek and depicts a male eagle carrying an olive branch as he flies over the nest of his mate and her hatchlings. Gold American Eagle 2021Mid-year the new reverse will be released that features a new design with the profile of an eagle. Jennie Norris from the Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) artist designed the eagle and Mint medallic artist Renata Gordon sculpted it.

According to Busiek, the design was inspired by Ronald Reagan’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in 1980. The theme of his speech was ‘Together, a new beginning.’ In an interview in Coin News Today, Busiek said, “I didn’t think that anyone had ever depicted our national symbol, the American bald eagle, except as a single heraldic eagle. I liked the idea of thinking of America as a caring family, so I put together a sketch showing not just one eagle, but a whole family.”

British Sovereign

This is the 200th anniversary of Britain’s modern Sovereign. For two centuries this coin has been a constant of British coinage and considered the flagship of the Royal Mint. The 2017 release is a celebration of this status.

Pistrucci’s artwork features St George and the dragon surrounded by the full Old French inscription and garter border. For this 2017 edition, the date is shown on the obverse for the first time since 1887. It also features a new shield mint mark, below the slain dragon, to signify the two century anniversary. The coin’s obverse shows the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

British Britannia 2017

The Britannia celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

To commemorate the milestone, The Royal Mint is using the original design by Sculptor Phillip Nathan from 1987 for the 2017 1 oz. gold bullion. In this design Britannia, the heroic female personification of Britain, stands on England’s South coast braced against a powerful wind holding a trident and a shield adorned with the Union Jack. There is a new accent though, the 2017 design features a radial sunburst behind the iconic spirit of Britain.

The figure of Britannia, a warrior queen or goddess, has been used on British coins since the days of the empire. She has often been said to reflect powerful women through the ages, and, in the case of certain British queens, the events and attitudes of their reigns.

During the eighteenth century her image was used to reinforce Britain’s mastery of the seas when she was first seen with a trident.

It makes sense that the Perth Mint’s primary gold bullion features Australia’s most iconic animal, the kangaroo. While it always stars the iconic marsupial, the design changes every year. This year’s bullion features a red kangaroo poised to hop from between two trees under the Australian sun.

In 2020, all Perth Mint bullion began featuring Jody Clark’s contemporary portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. She is shown wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem. Each of these coins also includes a micro-laser engraved letter within its reverse design as a security feature.

The Perth Mint is Australia’s official bullion mint and has over a century-long history. Between its establishment in 1899 and 1931, the Mint struck 106 million gold sovereigns and nearly 735,000 half-sovereigns which were used as currency in Australia. The Mint halted the manufacture of gold sovereigns in 1931 when Britain did away with the gold standard. However the mint and its refinery were kept busy with the creation of fine gold bullion bars and minting Australia’s base metal coinage up until the end of 1983. In 1957, the Perth Mint produced a 13 troy ounce proof of almost six nines of purity: 999.999 parts of gold per thousand, “arguably the purest of all gold.” This feat led The Royal Mint to order some of this gold to use as a benchmark for its own standards.

Chinese Panda – 2017

First produced in 1982, each new issue features a different design celebrating China’s iconic Giant Panda on the obverse side along with the face value in yuan. The image of the Temple of Heaven from Beijing’s Forbidden City is the same image that has been on the reverse since this coin was first struck in 1082.

Starting in 2016, the People’s Bank of China changed the Chinese Panda incremental sizes from ounces to grams.

One interesting thing to note, the Pandas are one of the few bullion coins lacking any identifying marks from its sovereign mint.

The Gold Maple Leaf coin was introduced in 1979 and rapidly grew in popularity as the only alternative bullion to the Krugerrand, which was going through distribution issues due to the boycott of apartheid-era South Africa. Gold Maple Leafs minted between 1979 and 1982 have a gold content of .999. In 1982, its purity was raised to .9999, making it the world’s first 99.99% pure gold bullion coin.

The Gold Maple Leaf’s reverse features a detailed sculpture of Canada’s iconic maple leaf by RCM engraver, Walter Ott. This had been the same leaf design used since the coin’s inception. The obverse features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II. This image has been updated three times since 1979.

In 2013, a laser-micro-engraved textured maple leaf privy mark was added on a small area of the reverse (Maple Leaf) side of the coin. In the center of this mark is the numeral denoting the coin’s year of issue, which is only visible under magnification. In 2015, the radial lines on the coin’s background on both sides of the coin were added.

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 authentication of Gold Maple Leaf coins dated 2014 and later, and Silver Maple Leaf coins dated 2015 and later in real time.

Interesting Note

In 2007, the Royal Canadian Mint unveiled a 100kg Gold Maple Leaf coin that was 99.999% pure. It had a face value of $1 million, but it’s metal value at the time of release was over $3.5 million. Only five of these massive, 50 cm in diameter by 3 cm thick, coins were struck.
On 26 March 2017, one of the five pieces was stolen from the Bode Museum. The heist remained a mystery for over a year. In July 2018, German police arrested members of an alleged Lebanese mob family for the theft.

The Presidential $1 Coin Act authorized the production of these 24-karat coins on December 22, 2005. The design for these coins resurrected the work of American sculptor James Earle Fraser for America’s five-cent coin, which popularly came to be known as the “Indian Head,” or “Buffalo Nickel.” It was introduced in 1913 and celebrates the American West with the noble Indian profile on the obverse and the buffalo on the reverse.

According to the U.S. Mint, the Native American depiction is a composite of three different individuals, with two of them identified by the artist before his death as Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. While there have been many who have said that they sat for Fraser, the artist could not recall the third person. It’s widely believed that Fraser used “Black Diamond,” a buffalo who lived in New York’s Zoological Gardens, as the model for the the bison on the coin’s reverse.

Notably, James Earle Fraser created one of the best-known American sculptures in America. Entitled “End of the Trail,” it was completed before Fraser was 17 years old in 1894 and won the $1,000 award of the American Art Association in Paris. This award brought Fraser to the attention of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the designer of the $10 and $20 eagle and double eagle coins. Saint-Gaudens, a member of the association’s jury that selected Fraser for the award, later asked Fraser to become his assistant.
