British Sovereign coins have been popular among collectors all over the world for hundreds of years. From the first British sovereign coin minted in 1544 to their popular run from 1817-1917 and their current run from 1980 to present, these coins have been a staple in collections all over the world. For a very limited time, the Ottawa mint created sovereign coins with the ‘C’ print mark. These coins only were minted from 1909-1919 and were minted in limited quantities.

On the reverse of these sovereign coins is the image of St. George on horseback going to battle a dragon. This design was created by Benedetto Pistrucci in 1817. Also on this side is the year of issue, ‘1911’ and the ‘C’ mint mark.
Each sovereign coin has the sovereign leader of the time. Hence the name. This year’s coin has the image of King George V facing left. This design was E.B. MacKennal.
Collectors love British Sovereign coins already but the 1911-C Canadian version gives them even more to love. This coin was only minted in Canada from 1909-1919. These coins were minted in limited quantities and have the ‘C’ mark for the Ottawa mint. These coins are pretty scarce in any condition but to get them in BU condition? A collector’s mind just might explode.
This is a golden opportunity (pun intended) to get a gold coin that is hard to find in a condition that is even harder to find. Get your 1911-C Canadian Gold Sovereign Coin before you can’t.
