In 1896 gold was discovered in the Yukon Territory of Canada which touched off a stampede of prospectors to the region hoping to find riches. The rush of people to the area put Canada on the map as one of the leading producers of gold. As a result, the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa opened its world class refinery. The Royal Canadian Mint continues to make incredible products and now that they produce a coin of the highest standard in the world, they have set the bar high for their competitors.
The obverse of this coin has Sussana Blunt’s Queen Elizabeth II design. Here the Queen is facing to her left which is the custom but she is not wearing a crown. The result is a more casual look but yet she is still as regal as ever. She is wearing pearl earrings and a pearl necklace. Above her to the left is ‘ELIZABETH II’. To the right of her is ‘D.G. REGINA’ which is Latin for ‘By the Grace of God, Queen. Below her image is ‘200 DOLLARS’.
On the reverse of the coin is the image of a locomotive. The locomotive was integral in moving bringing passengers and supplies back and forth on the White Pass and Yukon Route Railway. Beside the train are a group of miners using a sluice, a long channel made of wood in which water is routed down. The channel has slow spots created by riffles that allow the gold to settle into as the water flows down the sluice. In this illustration, the water runs out and over a leaf inside a circle which happens to be one of the security features of the coin. To the left of this leaf, is another micro-engraved maple leaf that has the number 23 in it which is the date of issue. At the top of the coin is ‘CANADA 2023’. Below the image is ‘FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PURE’. Just above this in smaller font, so humble these Canadians, is ‘99999’.
