2018 Canadian $200 The 1908 Sovereign: 110th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mint - 1 oz Pure Gold Coin


Step into the past—our past—with a 99.999% pure gold tribute to the 1908 British gold sovereign coin. The historic piece was the first gold coin struck at our Ottawa facility, in our first year of operation as the Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint. With the exception of the amended date of “2018”, the reverse design is nearly identical to the original piece—including the same “C” mint mark that stands for “Canada.”

A spectacular historical addition to your five 9s gold coin display! Order today!


Features:

A SPECIAL 110TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION! Your coin is a magnificent reproduction of the first gold coin ever struck by the Royal Canadian Mint (then the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint): the 1908 British gold sovereign coin.
“C” STANDS FOR “CANADA!” The reverse design of your coin is nearly identical to the original piece—including a “C” mint mark that denotes Canada as the country of production.
A 5-9S PURE GOLD TRIBUTE! Crafted from 99.999% pure gold, your tribute piece is a masterful recreation of the world-renowned gold coin.
A RARELY SEEN EFFIGY! Like its original counterpart, your coin’s obverse features the effigy of King Edward VII and the original inscription.
AN ENHANCED FINISH! Unlike the specimen finish of the 1908 British sovereigns, this pure gold piece features a proof finish that naturally highlights the intricate nature of this classic design.
A SLIGHTLY LARGER CANVAS! The 30 mm diameter is larger than the original coin’s 22.05 mm diameter, and provides a better view of the supremely sculpted details.
A PIECE FOR HISTORY ENTHUSIASTS! This tribute to the original 1908 sovereign represents a piece of our history, and world numismatic history too. It is an ideal addition to any history-themed collection.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
LOW MINTAGE! Limited to just 500 coins worldwide.
NO GST/HST!


Design:

Your coin features Benedetto Pistrucci’s neoclassical-style design for the British gold Sovereign, as it appeared on coins struck by the Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint in 1908. Saint George is shown on horseback, his left hand holding the reins while his right hand holds a sword. A dragon lies wounded at the horse’s feet. Above the amended date, “2018”, a “C” mint mark denotes the country of production (Canada). The obverse features the original legend “EDWARDVS VII D: G: BRITT: OMN: REX F: D: IND: IMP:” meaning “Edward VII: By The Grace of God, Of All the Britains, King, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India”, and the effigy of King Edward VII by George W. DeSaulles.


Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
