All 2022 Canadian Prospecting for Gold Coins will arrive housed inside a themed card with an assay. This both allows you to protect the coin and also offers evidence that they were inspected for authenticity by an official assayer at the Royal Canadian Mint. There is a great deal to love about these beautiful specimens, including their 5-9s purity, maple leaf laser-engraving, and splendid historical designs.
The Klondike Gold Rush occurred over a three-year period between 1896 and 1899. The harsh winter conditions made it difficult for miners to reach the gold buried in the bedrock of the creeks. Yet through an elaborate tunneling technique, they managed to break through the permafrost and reach the bedrock, where the gold was mixed with muck and gravel. The miners would pile what was called “paydirt” above the tunnels all the way until spring, at which point they built sluice boxes to sort through the soil and find their treasure.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of 2022 1 oz Gold Prospecting for Gold Coins. This Fourth-Generation portrait was completed by Susanna Blunt for the Royal Canadian Mint in 2003. It is notable for being the only portrait that does not depict the Queen wearing a crown. The Queen’s name and the coin’s denomination are inscribed along the rim.
A mining operation is depicted on the reverse of 2022 Prospecting for Gold Coins. We see a miner standing over a sluice box as the water pours through it and onto a maple leaf design below. Also shown is the micro-engraved maple leaf featuring the number 22 under magnification. Along the edges, you will see inscriptions of the coin’s hallmarks.
