This sale is for a complete set of 3 $5 gold coins 1912 1913 1914 Hand Selected with cases and all paperwork from the mint

OTTAWA, Nov. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - The Royal Canadian Mint is delighted to put a national treasure back in the hands of Canadians by offering the public the unique chance to buy part of a rare collection of Canada's first gold coins, produced by the Mint from 1912 to 1914 and not seen since the outbreak of the First World War. Stored at the Bank of Canada for over 75 years after becoming part of the Government of Canada's Exchange Fund Account, the highest quality of these $5 and $10 gold coins are now being offered for sale to convert the proceeds into quality fixed-income securities, while less visually appealing examples will be refined into 99.99% pure gold to liquidate the balance of the coin holdings.

"The 1912-14 $5 and $10 Canadian gold coins are at the source of the Royal Canadian Mint's reputation as a world-class refiner and producer of gold coins and we are delighted that these pieces of our history are back in the spotlight after a nearly century-long absence," said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint, "By creating this unique opportunity to purchase Canada's first gold coins proudly displaying national emblems, the Mint is excited to share these important artefacts with Canadians and collectors world-wide with the help of the Bank of Canada and the Department of Finance."

"The Bank of Canada is proud to have safeguarded these national treasures for over 75 years and we are pleased that they have returned to the Mint so that Canadians can collect them as precious historical objects," said Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada. "Though precious metal coins are no longer part of daily commerce, Canada's first gold circulation coins endure as important symbols of our nation's proud heritage."

When it opened its doors for business in January 1908 as the Canadian branch of Britain's Royal Mint, the Mint's Ottawa facility was mandated to produce Canada's circulation coinage as well as convert Canada's growing gold resources into dollar-denominated gold circulation coins. From 1912 to 1914, the Mint therefore produced $5 and $10 coins of 90% pure Canadian gold and proudly displaying national symbols.

While a small number of coins bearing the date 1912, 1913 or 1914 have remained in the hands of individual collectors, the bulk of these coins were kept out of circulation at the beginning of the First World War as the government accumulated gold reserves to help finance the war effort.

Today, the Mint is offering these historical coins in highly exclusive premium hand-selected sets of all six denominations produced from 1912 to 1914, in addition to selling single coins in premium hand-selected and hand-selected quality. The proceeds of this sale, less a fixed management fee, will be returned to the Exchange Fund Account for the purchase of high credit quality, marketable fixed-income securities, in compliance with the fund's mandate.
