For over 75 years a group of Canada's first gold coins were stored at the Bank of Canada as a part of the Government of Canada's Exchange Fund Account. These safeguarded coins became available to collectors in late 2012, allowing collectors a unique chance to own a piece of Canadian history. Each coin was struck over 100 years ago and remained untouched since then.
Approximately 245,000 of the $5 and $10 coins were found with only the top 30,000 coins being kept and made available for public purchase. Die übrigen 215.000 wurden von der Prägeanstalt zerschmolzen.
Each coin is struck on a 900 Fine Gold 26.92 mm planchet and weighs 16.72 Grams (.4838 oz Fine Gold). The obverse features a crowned portrait of King George V. The reverse bears Canada's Coat of Arms which was originally adopted in 1868.
