2006 Canada $1 Gold Louis .999 Fine Gold Coin (TAX Exempt)

During the 17th and 18th centuries, the inhabitants of New France faced chronic shortages. Their colony was months away from the motherland, isolated by the Atlantic Ocean whose treacherous waters claimed countless sailing ships. Everything was scarce including coins!

An entire annual budget of coins was lost when Le Chameau slammed into the coast of Cape Breton in 1725, leaving no survivors and bits of broken cargo washed ashore. The story of lost treasure became a vibrant part of local lore, but people could only speculate if gold coins lay hidden in the dangerous waters until an adventurer arrived in 1960. Convinced the treasure was there, he spent the next five years searching.

Finally in 1965 gold! Hidden deep under the ocean, near the bottom of a crevice and below layers of silver coins, lay hundreds of gold coins in near perfect condition. After 240 years, the mystery of Le Chameau's precious treasure was solved!
