Gold buyers are accustomed to browsing online through a selection of gold coins in bullion and proof. In 2016, the Royal Canadian Mint took the concept of legal tender to a new format with the issuance of a legal tender gold bar. These bars have a face value backed by the government of Canada and feature the same impressive purity as Canadian gold coinage. Today, 1/10 oz Gold Royal Canadian Mint Legal Tender Bars are available to you online at Silver.com.

Mints across the world strike and release gold bullion coins with a legal tender status. The amount of gold included in these coins is always far greater than the legal tender value assigned to the coins, but it is a staple of sovereign minting that continues in every nation to attract investors. The Royal Canadian Mint has taken this concept to a new level.
With the issue of a Royal Canadian Mint Gold Legal Tender Bar, the Canadian sovereign mint changed the look and shape of commonly issued gold bullion. The rectangular bar is similar to other gold bullion bars in all manners, with the notable exception of the face value assigned to the bar and backed by Canada’s government.
All of the 1/10 oz Gold Royal Canadian Mint Legal Tender Bars listed here ship inside of protective plastic, with individually sealed bars coupled into groups of five bars. There is an assay card included for each individual bar, and that card includes inscriptions in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese that note the bars are “Legal Tender Bars.”
The reverse of the 1/10 oz Gold Legal Tender Bar from the Royal Canadian Mint includes a geographic map of the world that features all seven continents on the planet. Outside of that circular design is the face value of the bar, as well as its weight, purity, and metal content.
On the obverse of the 1/10 oz Gold Royal Canadian Mint Legal Tender Bar is Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. The right-profile portrait here is from Susanna Blunt and was created in 2003. Engravings on this side include “Canada,” “Elizabeth II,” “DG Regina,” and the year of issue.
