Step into the past with a fully gold-plated 99.99% pure silver tribute to the 1908 British gold sovereign coin, which represents an important piece of the Royal Canadian Mint's 110-year history. With the exception of the amended date of "2018", the reverse design is nearly identical to the original piece, including the same "C" mint mark that stands for "Canada".

The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's neoclassical-style design for the British gold Sovereign, as it appeared on coins struck by the Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint in 1908. Saint George is shown on horseback, his left hand holding the reins while his right hand holds a sword. A dragon lies wounded at the horse's feet. Above the amended date, "2018", a "C" mint mark denotes the country of production (Canada). The obverse features the original legend "EDWARDVS VII D: G: BRITT: OMN: REX: F: D: IND: IMP:" meaning "Edward VII: By The Grace of God, Of All the Britains, King, Defender of the Faith, and Emperor of India", and the effigy of King Edward VII by George W. DeSaulles.

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.
