It is a rarity when coins struck more than a century ago are simply discovered sitting around in a vault. This happened in the United States in the 1960s with millions of uncirculated Morgan Dollars. Shortly after, a similar discovery was made when thousands of Canadian Gold Reserve Coins were discovered in the vaults of the Bank of Canada. Coins from this series are unique and rare. Right now, you can buy 1914 $10 Canadian Gold Reserve Coins online at Provident Metals.

King George V is depicted in left-profile relief on the obverse of 1914 $10 Canadian Gold Reserve Coins. The portrait is the first from his reign. King George V reigned as King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and as the Emperor of India, from May 1910 until his death in 1936. Inscriptions on this face of the coin read Georgivs V Dei Gra: Rex Et Ind: Imp. The inscriptions are in Latin and identify the monarch by name, George V, and his realm.


The earliest Canadian coat of arms is featured on the reverse side of the 1914 Canadian Gold Reserve Coin. The quartered shield comes with the individual coat of arms for each of the founding provinces of the Dominion of Canada: Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. The inscriptions on this face of the coin include Canada, 1914, and Ten Dollars.


The Royal Canadian Mint struck the coins of the Canadian Gold Reserve starting in 1912 and continued to do so through 1914. The coins were struck in the thousands, but due to the onset of World War I, most of the coins were never released into circulation. Countless thousands of the coins were stored away in cloth bags in secure Canadian bank vaults before being transferred to the Department of Finance and later, the Bank of Canada.

When the hoard of Canadian Gold Reserve coins was discovered in the late-20th century, the Royal Canadian Mint selected 30,000 of the best specimens for sale to collectors and melted down the remainder of the hoard.
