2021 (1896-) Canadian $25 Klondike Gold Rush: Panning For Gold 125th Anniv 1 oz Silver Concave Coin


Go panning for gold with this pan-shaped coin

“Gold!” It was the golden promise that lured more than 30,000 fortune seekers to Yukon’s Klondike region, and you get a sense of the experience with this pan-shaped (concave) pure silver coin. This is one of the enduring romantic images of the Klondike Gold Rush, and the gold-plated nuggets engraved at the bottom of your pan evoke this critical moment. The influx of gold rushers, however, also forever altered the land, uprooting and repressing the traditional ways of living of the Indigenous peoples who lived in the area for millennia prior to the arrival of settlers. Indigenous communities living in what became Yukon still grapple with this legacy today.

Shaped like a prospector’s pan! Selective gold plating frames this snapshot of the past and adds a realistic gleam to this gold discovery.



REVISIT THE KLONDIKE! This year (2021) marks the 125th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush (1896-1899), a critical event in our nation’s history. The theme is commemorated on several coins issued in 2021, including this selectively gold-plated concave coin.
SHAPED LIKE A PAN! Concave coin’s reverse is uniquely shaped to resemble the iconic steel pan used by those who went panning for gold in the Klondike. Engraved details and various frostings complete the look.
GOLD! This was the dream of every Klondike prospector: finding a gold nugget at the bottom of their pan. Your coin’s reverse re-creates the experience by including a few engraved, gold-plated nuggets that evoke Yukon’s gold rush era.
A GOLD FRAME! Crafted from 1 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, your coin also features a gold-plated rim that provides a rich colour contrast and helps frame this snapshot of the past.
LOW MINTAGE! Only 5,000 are available worldwide. Given the theme and the coin’s unique shape, this is a limited collectible that is sure to be in high demand!
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.



Framed by a gold-plated rim, your coin’s concave-shaped reverse features a design by RCM engraver Matt Bowen. A combination of engraved details and multiple frostings help capture the look of the steel pans used by those who went panning for gold during the Klondike Gold Rush (1896-1899). Water pouring out of the pan reveals gold-plated nuggets and flecks, which are engraved at the bottom of the pan. The reverse includes the words “CANADA” and “KLONDIKE 1896-2921” to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the discovery that sparked the gold rush.

The obverse features a face value of “25 DOLLARS” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
