The legend of the Canadian Hoard - The 100-year-old gold coin that time forgot

• The first Canadian gold coin

• Locked away since WWI until their discovery when some were released and sold out immediately

• The remaining coins were melted

• Authenticated to be from the Canadian Hoard that was discovered at the turn of the century

• Struck from 16.72g of 90% pure gold



Why I recommend the 1913-14 Canadian Hoard Gold $10 Coin…

This is one of Canada’s first gold coins, but that’s not even half the story…

With the outset of the First World War, the Canadian gold coin program was closed in favour of gold bars. As Canada fought the war, it took a tight hold of its gold reserves, with almost all of the coins produced for circulation never reaching the public. Instead, they were tucked away in the vaults of the Bank of Canada.

Long forgotten or simply unknown, the coins became a myth until their discovery almost 100 years later when some of the 180,000 coins were released to collectors, selling out instantly. The rest were melted.
