Canada Hoard Coin! These coins had not been seen since the outbreak of the First World War. Made from .900 Canadian Gold, much of it from the Klondike region (1912) and Ontario (1913-14); now, you can own a piece of history graded MS-64 by PCGS!
In one of the most exciting and significant developments in Canadian numismatics, the RCM recently began selling 30,000 early 20th century Gold coins that had been in Bank of Canada storage vaults for decades. The 30,000 coins are from a hoard of 300,000 $5 and $10 denomination coins dated 1912, 1913 and 1914, the first years of Canadian government Gold coinage. The remaining 270,000 gold pieces in the hoard have been melted. Coin Highlights:
- Contains 0.48 troy oz of gold.
- Coin comes slabbed and certified by PCGS.
- Obverse: King George V's effigy.
- Reverse: The De facto Coat of Arms adopted in 1868.
- The gold coins in this hoard are phenomenal rarities and hold the unique distinction of being Canada’s first-ever gold coins.
The coins issued in 1914 were the final coins issued in the 3 year Canadian gold coin program. These coins are part of Canadian history, and are amongst the earliest gold coins to come from Canada.
