- A special 110th anniversary celebration: A stunning reproduction of the first gold coin ever struck by the Royal Canadian Mint (then the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint): the 1908 British gold sovereign coin.
- Fully gold-plated. Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, this tribute piece is fully gold-plated to resemble the world-renowned gold coin.
- A rarely seen effigy: Like its original counterpart, the coin’s obverse features the effigy of King Edward VII.
- An enhanced finish: Unlike the specimen finish of the 1908 British sovereigns, this a proof finish that naturally highlights the intricate nature of this classic design.
- A slightly larger canvas: The 38 mm diameter is larger than the original coin’s 22.05 mm diameter, and provides a better view of the supremely sculpted details.
- A piece for history enthusiasts: This tribute to the original 1908 sovereign represents a piece of our history, and world numismatic history too. It is an ideal addition to any history-themed collection.
