LAST CALL!
Low Mintage Gold Proofs Are HOT, All But Gone!


Iconic Animals #4 - Bold Black Bear Gold ProofMaybe you’ve noticed - investment-grade gold proofs from the Royal Canadian Mint are smokin’ hot! There are a number of reasons for this. First and foremost, the mintages are low - ridiculously, inscrutably low - many mintage limits are below 300! As a result, Canadian gold proofs almost always sell out extremely quickly at the Mint, quickly becoming desperately hard to find.

Maple Leaf Silhouette Gold ProofThen there are the designs - extremely popular themes like wildlife (including the Black Bear and Roaring Grizzly), history (like Queen Elizabeth's Historic Longest Reign), the maple leaf (in Platinum, 5 Ounce Gold, and even Maple-Leaf Shaped), Tall Sailing Ships, and the great outdoors (as painted by Tom Thomson) - all engraved with minute detail and struck with exacting precision. Finally, there’s the price; it’s easy to see why investors have flocked to these superb releases!

Roaring Grizzly Gold - COA #006To make things easy, we've gathered up a fantastic assortment of these rarities for you. First, however, a word of warning - we really do mean "Last Call"! Available only in tiny quantities for everything here, in fact we have only one remaining for many of these beauteous gems. Upping the ante even more, we even offer a few very low and special serial numbers, as noted below! Please act quickly to avoid disappointment!
