2008 Canada $300 14K Newfoundland and Labrador Coat of Arms Gold

Canada may be less than 150 years old, but much of its identity reaches back centuries to a time when knights in the Middle Ages painted symbols on their shields to identify friend from foe. This is how the coat of arms was born, an ancient art form's yours to enjoy with this new collection showcasing Canada's provincial and territorial Arms in stunning 14-karat gold.

The Coat of Arms of Newfoundland and Labrador was originally granted to Sir David Kirke (Newfoundland's governor and head of a private trading company) in 1638. Lost for almost three centuries, these Arms were reintroduced in the 1920s.

Highlights
With a limited mintage of only 1,000 coins per design, the new Provincial Coats of Arms Collection delivers an upscale and very collectible portrait of Canada.

Reverse
A faithful reproduction of the Coat of Arms of Newfoundland and Labrador: a white cross on a red shield dividing it into quadrants featuring two royal lions (England) and two unicorns (Scotland). The warriors represent the Beothuk people, the province's native inhabitants. The elk is unknown in Newfoundland and is likely a European's interpretation of the caribou. The motto Quaerite prime regnum means Ye first the Kingdom of God.
