These $10 Gold coins were minted 2 years after the first gold coins were ever struck in Canada as Canadian coinage. This piece features King George V of England on the obverse and a shield with the Arms of the Dominion of Canada on the Reverse. The gold for these coins was sourced locally from the Yukon Territory, which you may recognize as the famous home to one of the largest gold rushes!
After World War I broke out, Canada used its gold reserves to only produce gold bars, and discontinued its gold coin program. The vast majority of these $10 gold coins were hidden in reserves during the war, and never saw the light of day...that is until the Canadian Mint made an announcement in 2012. The Bank of Canada Hoard would be released after almost 100 years as "High quality treasures of Canada's numismatic past". Now you can own this gold piece full of rich history in a fantastic MS63 grade from NGC along with a stunning and exclusive Bank of Canada Hoard label! Only 1,654 exist and we only have 18 available, so this rare deal won't be around for too long!
