1913 $5 Hand-Selected Gold Coin – Canada’s First Gold Coins
In March of 1912 the first gold coins that were Canadian in every aspect, from raw material to reverse image design, were struck.
One hundred years after the first Canadian gold coins were minted, they have returned home to the Royal Canadian Mint, formerly the Ottawa branch of the British Royal Mint. Although the world into which they now shed their warm glow is utterly different from their original era—these storied coins retain a moment in Canadian history when progress, hope,pride, and victory burned brightly in the Canadian imagination.
Hand-selected by Mint staff for a high quality appearance, with minimal evidence of wear caused by handling, storage, or environmental conditions, these coins are wonderful examples of Canadian numismatic history. They offer the best combination of quality and affordability which gives a wide range of customers the chance to buy a special coin not seen on the market for nearly 100 years.
