Canada 1914 George V Ten Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS63

Description

Drawn from a hoard release of just 24,239 examples, this 1914 George V Canadian Ten Dollar Gold Piece comes from the first series of gold coins ever struck by the Royal Canadian Mint. Depicting King George V on the obverse and the Canadian coat of arms on the reverse, this $10 gold coin was first struck in 1912. However, the series ended just two years later with the outbreak of World War 1, as the Canadian government recalled the vast majority of these coins. Nearly a century later, the Royal Canadian Mint decided to release the finest examples from a hoard of over 245,000 coins, hand-picking just 24,239 out of the hoard while the rest were melted down.

This stunning gold coin contains just under half an ounce of pure gold and has been graded Mint State 63 by NGC. Between its low mintage of just 140,068 examples in 1914, and its hoard release pedigree, this coin is an astounding Absolute Rarity.
