The Royal Canadian Mint issued its first-ever commemorative coins in 1935. In the decades since, the mint has found a way to celebrate everything from hosting the Olympics to honoring the achievements of the Canadian Armed Forces in World War II using commemorative gold bullion coins. Provident Metals now has random-year Canadian Commemorative 1/4 oz Gold Coins available to purchase online.
When you purchase a Canadian Commemorative 1/4 oz Gold Coin in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a coin that is housed in a plastic flip. These coins come with various date marks and varying designs on the reverse fields. While most of these coins will have a $100 (CAD) face value, it is not possible to guarantee this is the face value on all coins, it is a common value for 1/4 oz gold. Additionally, the coins will have either .583 gold fineness or .999+ pure gold. Most modern Canadian gold commemoratives have .999+ pure gold, while older coins have .583 fineness.
Provident Metals selects all coins in this listing for you at random. We cannot guarantee the face value, purity, designs, or date marks in advance. All items are chosen at random once your payment clears and it is possible to get coins with matching dates and designs when you buy multiples.
