If you are a collector of gold and silver, you may have been burned in the past. Gold and silver coins can be a great way to invest your hard earned money but you can also be swindled by dealing with shady gold and silver dealers. When it comes bullion coin purchases, one can benefit from working with a Kitchener bullion dealer who is certified by the Royal Canadian Mint. The Royal Canadian Mint actually has a program where dealers can become certified to authenticate their gold and silver maple leaf bullion coins. If you work with such a dealer for your next bullion purchases, then you can rest easy knowing that you will have access to only authentic coinage.
The Royal Canadian Mint has been producing gold and silver maple leaf bullion coins for decades. Over the years, the Mint has been able to develop security features to ensure the authenticity of their coins. The coins are considered to be the most secure on the market today thanks to the special security features incorporated during the minting process by the Royal Canadian Mint. Such features include laser marking technology, advanced engraving and the new precision radial lines.
To help purchasers make authentic buys, the Mint has decided to create Bullion DNA. This is a tool that dealers can use to authentic a customer’s gold and silver maple leaf coins. So whether you are bringing in coins for appraisal or looking to buy, Bullion DNA dealers have the tool needed to ensure that the coins you have are legit. By using the tool, it takes a dealer only seconds to be able to authenticate the coins.
When it comes to the production of gold and silver maple leaf coins, a laser micro-engraving process is used that adds an anti-counterfeiting security mark. The textured maple leaf stands as this special security measure and is easily seen with the Bullion DNA tool. The company uses a digital non-destructive activation known as DNA as the registration process. This technology captures images that have been encrypted in a string of code and the information is secured in the Mint database.
To begin the review process, the coin is inserted into the device known as the Bullion DNA tool. An application is then used to take a high resolution photograph of the coin. The DNA server will then match the photo and be able to tell you if the info is found in the database. This helps to provide peace of mind when purchasing gold and silver bullion. The authentication process is simple but high-tech enough to ensure the coins you purchase are real.
