2012 Canada $10 1/4 Oz .9999 Fine Gold War of 1812 (in Mint Plastic)
In 2012, the Royal Canadian Mint struck this coin to honor the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. It has a face value of $10, a weight of ¼ Troy oz., and is made of .9999 fine gold. Like many coins from the RCM, mintage was limited. The maximum mintage for this design was set at 2,000 pieces.
The obverse shows a depiction of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was created by artist Susanna Blunt and has been used on Canadian coins for quite some time. The reverse design is symbolic of the War of 1812. An eagle can be seen on the right representing the United States while a lion represents Great Britain on the left. Between them, there is a maple leaf for Canada.
This ¼ oz. gold coin is still sealed in its original Mint plastic. It is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and has not been graded by a third-party.
