The Royal Canadian Mint has released their final sales figures for 2013, and report that both the Gold Maple Leaf and Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins set new sales records!

Gold Maple Leaf sales were up 47.7% to 1.14 million troy ounces, and Silver Maple Leaf sales were up 55.8% to 28.2 million troy ounces. 2014 looks to be another banner year for the historic bullion coins. Interest for the Silver Maple Leaf is even higher this year, with the introduction of the same micro-etched security mark as the Gold Maple, and a new field of precise radial lines that give a shimmering effect when viewed at an angle.
