Re-live the Klondike Gold Rush with this year’s gold fractional set, which invites you to pan for gold! You’re guaranteed a gold strike thanks to its 1 oz. coin, which is topped with a genuine Canadian gold grain from the Royal Canadian Mint’s world-class refinery. With its gold pan privy mark, each coin represents an important chapter in Canadian history. And unlike the prospectors who made the arduous journey north to dig, sluice and pan for gold, this set offers you a gold-themed journey that’s all reward and no risk.

Each coin’s reverse features two sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves that represent Canada. Along with the double dates (“1896” “2021”) that commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush, each one includes a gold pan privy mark that symbolizes the 1896 gold discovery on Bonanza Creek. The gold pan on the 1 oz. coin is topped with a genuine Canadian gold grain from the Royal Canadian Mint’s refinery. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Klondike Gold Rush, 1896-1899
It was 125 years ago that the first glittering pieces of gold were discovered in a small stream south of the Klondike River. News of this discovery set off one of the most famous gold rushes in world history. Thousands caught gold fever and poured into the Yukon district of the North-West Territories, all hoping to strike it rich. In 1899, gold strikes in Alaska began luring miners away from the region and boom towns emptied. But that sudden influx of stampeders and adventure-seekers left an indelible mark on Canadian history and forever changed Yukon, which was recognized as a separate territory in 1898.
