Is Maple Leaf the most difficult to counterfeit…

    …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.

    I have not seen any counterfeit bullion except American SE and Chinese Pandas.

    I think so. It only makes sense that the more details on them would surely make them more difficult to reproduce with any accuracy. JMO.

    If there are counterfeit Maple Leafs, they will be the earlier pieces pre-2014 or so. The detail and quality is hard to match. And specific gravity is a buyer's best friend in the end.
