This gold proof contains .2500 of an ounce. Issued to raise funds for the Calgary Olympic Games, this gold coin actually has one of the nice modern olympic designs. Shown is a fiery torch, with the flames morphing into the Rocky Mountain Range. An absolutely beautiful design. This is the lettered-edge variety. Comes with original Royal Canadian Mint Box and certificate of authenticity.

Comments about Royal Canadian Mint 1987 $100 1/4oz Gold Proof - Calgary Olympics:
This is a very beautiful coin, picture does not do it justice. To my surprise, mine actually came with an elegant display case and a certificate of authenticity from the mint. I'll be purchasing more of these commemorative Canadian gold coins at a small fraction over spot. The interesting aspect about this coin is that it contains .2500 ounce of pure 999 gold, the coin is heavier than that, why? Because according to the COA, it also contains 999 pure silver. It was an added value bonus that was a very plesant surprise. I have to say that dealing with APMEX has been a joy, they've been very good so far.
