Description Technical Specs Extended Information
In 1914, the First World War began and Canada took tight hold of its gold reserves to counteract heavy withdrawals at Canadian banks. By the end of August, 1914, key changes had been made to Canada's financial system that effectively suspended the gold standard, sealing the fate of the Canadian gold coins. The Dominion Government cancelled the Canadian gold coin program in 1915.

Many of the Canadian gold coins produced from 1912 to 1914 became part of the government's gold reserves. In March of 1935, the newly formed Bank of Canada began collecting the gold coins from the Department of Finance and Canadian chartered banks. A vast number of the first Canadian gold coins remained in cloth bags in the Bank of Canada's vaults for over 75 years.

Your 1914 $10 Canadian gold coin originated from the collection stored in the Bank of Canada vaults and has been hand-selected based on its quality. The coin, encased in a capsule featuring silver holographic security seals, is authorized by the Government of Canada as an original strike 1914 gold coin, expertly minted by the then Ottawa branch of the British Royal Mint.
