Specifications

Buy this historical Canadian gold coin, slabbed and graded by NGC as an MS-63. Available for purchase through our online store, we ship worldwide.

For over 75 years a group of Canada's first gold coins were stored at the Bank of Canada as a part of the Government of Canada's Exchange Fund Account. These safeguarded coins became available to collectors in late 2012, allowing collectors a unique chance to own a piece of Canadian history. Each coin was struck over 100 years ago and remained untouched since then.

Approximately 245,000 of the $5 and $10 coins were found with only the top 30,000 coins being kept and made available for public purchase. The remaining 215,000 were melted down by the mint.

Each coin is struck on a 900 Fine Gold 26.92 mm planchet and weighs 16.72 Grams (.4838 oz Fine Gold). The obverse features a crowned portrait of King George V. The reverse bears Canada's Coat of Arms which was originally adopted in 1868.

Highlights

  • Ships individually sealed in a protective coin holder
  • Consisting of 0.4838 oz of 900 Fine Gold

The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
