The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 to process gold and other precious metals discovered in the Yukon Territories in the late 19th century. Initially used to produce gold bars to fund the British Empire’s war efforts during World War I, the mint has evolved into an entity of the Canadian government and has become a leading innovator in coin design, quality, and security.
These coins are packaged in Thermatron sheets of 25, and mint-sealed monster boxes of 500 coins (20 sheets of 25).
