One of the Rarest Branch Mint Sovereigns

When gold was discovered in the Yukon in 1900 the Canadian Government applied for the right to produce Sovereigns. A year later the Canadian House of Commons agreed to fund a branch of The Royal Mint in Ottawa and the first coins were struck in 1908. The minting of Sovereigns at the Canadian Mint was never extensive and effectively came to an end in 1919, when fewer than one million pieces had been struck.

This original 22 carat gold Sovereign was struck by the Canadian branch mint in 1911, the coronation year of George V. It bears Pistrucci's St George and the dragon on its reverse, with the Canadian mint mark in the ground beneath the dragon. The obverse features Bertram Mackennal's portrait of the king.
