…in comparison with American Eagle, Philharmonic and Krugerrand? I am asking because I see that Maple Leaf has a laser-thing engraved with the year it has been minted, and at the same time some radial lines are also added: The others such of American Eagle, Philharmonic and Krugerrand do not have it. So my question is: is Maple Leaf more difficult to make a counterfeit of giving the design? - or is it just a false sense of security in order to make people buy it? I apologize if the question has been asked before. I found none.
