– ROYAL CANADIAN THE MINT HONORS CANADA’S MINING HERITAGE BY RELEASING A BULLION COIN FROM REQUESTED THE KLONDIKE THEME AT PDAC 2022
OTTAWA (ON), June 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Klondike Gold Rush, a turning point in Canadian mining history, and the prospecting methods used to find gold first discovered in Yukon’s famous Bonanza Creek in 1896, recalled in a new 99.999% pure gold (5-9s) bullion coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. This new issue, which illustrates the operation of a traditional portal, is the second in a series of 1 oz. Pure gold 5 to 9 shilling coins commemorating “the last great gold rush” that forever transformed Canada, the Yukon and the lives of the Indigenous peoples who inhabited the land for millennia.
This bullion coin, made from the purest gold in the world, was launched today in Toronto, Ont., at PDAC 2022, the world’s leading exploration and mining conference hosted by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada. It is on display at the Royal Canadian Mint booth and will soon be available through the Mint’s network of official bullion dealers.
The flip side of the $200 1oz Klondike Gold Rush: Prospecting for 99.999% gold. is designed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn, which illustrated a wooden sluice box in action, filled with “paid earth” from which the precious flakes and nuggets of gold are carefully separated. The obverse and reverse background features a series of precisely engraved radial lines that have become a defining feature of the Mint’s bullion coins. The coin’s security is further enhanced by the Mint’s distinctive micro-engraved maple leaf mintmark, displaying the number 22 corresponding to its year of issue.
The Mint’s latest pure gold 5-9 shilling bullion coin comes in an ornately designed credit card-style packaging that includes a certificate of purity signed by the Mint’s assayer.

In keeping with a distribution model common to the world’s major issuers of bullion coins, the Mint does not sell bullion directly to the public. Interested buyers are encouraged to contact a reputable bullion dealer to order new bullion coins.
