Two Gold Stealth Releases and a Sell-Out Alert!

The Royal Canadian Mint has just unleashed two gold coins in a late January Stealth Release! The annual $100 and $200 gold proofs have been unveiled. Both have extremely low mintage limits, and both sold out at the Mint last year!

The popular Great Explorers series wraps up, commemorating Alexander Mackenzie Reaching the Pacific on the $200 pure gold proof! This year's $100 Gold Proof remembers the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917, when a World War I ammunition ship collided with another, causing the largest man-made explosion of the pre-nuclear era!

Finally, we bring you a sell-out notice - the Timeless Icons Silver Maple & Beaver Piedfort Gold-Plated Silver Proof has proved to be immensely popular, vanishing almost instantaneously at the Mint! Get yours now while we still offer it at a below-issue price!

Canada 2017 Great Halifax Explosion of 1917 $100 Gold Proof

2017 Great Halifax Explosion of 1917 $100 Gold ProofGreat Halifax Explosion 1917 $100 Gold Proof
Ammunition Ships Collision - MINTAGE 1,500
Investment Opportunity!The annual $100 Gold Proof for 2017 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917, during the First World War. The extremely low mintage of just 1,500 virtually guarantees a sell-out, just like last year!

It was the largest man-made explosion of the pre-nuclear era. On the morning of December 6, 1917, the Norwegian ship SS Imo and the French ammunition ship SS Mont-Blanc collided as they made their way through Halifax, Nova Scotia’s busy harbor. The impact ignited Mont-Blanc’s explosive cargo, resulting in an catastrophic blast that instantly leveled the entire district, killed almost 2,000 people, and triggered a tsunami.

The gold proof design commemorates the event by combining two powerfully symbolic elements associated with this maritime disaster: the final view of the munitions ship SS Mont-Blanc at the moment she exploded, sailing westward into history; and the melted face of a clock retrieved from the wreckage, its hands forever frozen at the exact moment of the detonation, 9:04 am. To this day, the Halifax Explosion remains one of the worst North American tragedies of all time.

Lowest mintage limit ever for this series - only 1,500! (That's down from 3,000 in 2011!) The $100 Gold Proof Series is highly collected, and this year's edition proudly celebrates the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917 during the First World War! Last year's Great Parliament Fire $100 Gold Proof sold out quickly at the Mint! We therefore recommend this as a buy-and-hold investment and predict another fast sell-out!

2017 Great Explorers #6 - Alexander Mackenzie Reaches Pacific $200 Gold Proof

Great Explorers #6 - Alexander Mackenzie reaches the PacificGreat Explorers #6 - $200 Pure Gold Proof
Alexander Mackenzie & Native American Brave
Investment Opportunity!Significant precious metal content, extraordinary detail and historic accuracy, and tiny mintage limit make for tremendous investment potential! Get explorer Alexander Mackenzie on the sixth and final coin in the Great Explorers series, on this half ounce pure gold proof with a mintage of just 1,000!

Arriving at North Bentinck Arm in July 1793, in present-day British Columbia, Sir Alexander Mackenzie made history by becoming the first European to cross the northern North American continent and reach the waters of the Pacific Ocean. His drive and determination to succeed exemplify some of the qualities that define history’s great explorers, while the chronicle of his journeys to the Arctic and Pacific coasts would inspire others to follow.

Mintage Limit Slashed in Half! This is the lowest mintage limit ever for this series - only 1,000! (That's down from 3,000 in 2012 and 2,000 in 2015!) The first Great Explorers $200 Gold Proof, the 2012 Vikings, sold out completely at the Mint! We therefore recommend this as a buy-and-hold investment and predict a fast sell-out!

2017 Canada's 150th Anniversary 2 Ounce Iconic Silver Maple Leaf Matte Proof

2017 Timeless Icons - Beaver & Silver Maple Leaf Piedfort ProofTimeless Icons - Beaver and Maple Leaf
Celebrating Canada's 150th Anniversary
High Relief Gold-Plated Piedfort Silver Proof
Sold Out!Two timeless icons - the Maple Leaf and the Beaver - are united on this gorgeous, proof finish double-thick, high relief piedfort, plated in 24-karat gold and minted in one troy ounce of the purest silver on the planet - with a tiny mintage limit of just 7,000!

The beaver and the maple leaf are the defining symbols of the great nation to the north; the first speaks of the past, when the fur trade helped shape Canada, while the second predates the flag as an emblem of this land, its people, and its hope for the future. We reflect on Canada's amazing 150-year journey - and its future beyond - through the fusion of two iconic emblems that continue to inspire admiration by proudly representing all that is Canada.

SELL OUT ALERT! This is the first-ever gold-plated piedfort from Canada, and only the fifth silver piedfort ever from the RCM, with a tiny mintage of just 7,000!
It sold out at the Mint almost instantaneously! Our advice? Get it now!
