What is DNA?

DNA stands for digital non-destructive activation, and is the latest in anti-counterfeiting technology. The Royal Canadian Mint started using DNA anti-counterfeiting technology on all of the 1oz Gold Maple Leaf coins in 2014, and on the 1oz Silver Maple Leaf coins in 2015. The DNA anti-counterfeiting technology makes these coins not only some of the most sought after bullion coins, but now also the most secure bullion coins in the world.

The DNA feature contains encrypted code located within the privy mark of each coin. Our DNA bullion authentication machines connect directly to the Royal Canadian Mint and can authenticate the bullion coin in seconds. 

At Canada Gold we authenticate every DNA Gold Maple Leaf Coins validity before we sell the coin to you so you know you are getting the best possible gold your money can buy.
