A tiny dot on a coin can make a big difference—in fact, it is the distinguishing feature of a true rarity: Canada's 1936 Dot 10-cent coin. With only six known examples in existence today, the uncommon coin is the kind of ultra-rare, high-value find that puts any collection into a rarefied stratum, and transforms a collector into a custodian of history. Both the obverse and reverse designs have been painstakingly replicated, and all the original details have been kept intact—even the "1936" date on the reverse. And that's a first for us, because the year of issue usually takes precedence.

This pure gold version is the next-best thing to owning the original. Order today!

Special features:
  • ORIGINAL DATE! To ensure historical accuracy, the reverse bears the original date ("1936") instead of the year of issue—a first for us!
  • A DOT THAT MEANS A LOT! Only six of the 1936-dated coins have survived! Crafted in 99.99% pure gold, this representation is the easiest way to make one of Canada's most elusive numismatic treasures a part of your collection.
  • BIG ON HISTORY! Our engravers went over every element of the original coin in order to replicate its famous design, from the effigy down to the number of denticles that form the border.
  • SIZED UP! Thanks to its 30 mm diameter, this pure gold version is larger than the original coin (18.03 mm) and brings new appreciation for the detailed design.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Only 550 of these coins are available worldwide. Order today!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • NO GST/HST

Design:
Your coin is a 99.99% pure gold reproduction of the rare 1936 Dot 10-cent coin. Its reverse features the crossed maple boughs designed by W. H. J. Blakemore and bears the original "1936" date. A dot beneath the bow is the identifying mark of coins produced with obsolete designs in early 1937 during the transition to the reign of King George VI. The obverse features the year of issue, "2021", and the historic effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal.

"The 1936 Dot 10 Cents is one of the rarest Canadians coins ever produced. The few coins extant are either in permanent museum collections or in private collections and are unobtainable for most collectors. Beyond the actual specimens on display in the Bank of Canada Museum, this limited coin from the Royal Canadian Mint presents an opportunity for collectors to own special representations of Canadian numismatic treasures."  - David Bergeron: Curator, National Currency Collection - Bank of Canada

"The reproduction of such a rare piece comes with its fair share of challenges. Although it required some additional steps during the production process, we were willing to go the distance if it meant we could establish a connection with the past and bring all the original details to today's collectors." - Melanie Luis: Product Manager

A "Dot" Variety: The 1936 Dot 10-Cent Coin
Following the death of King George V on January 20, 1936, preparations began on a new obverse for 1937 featuring the effigy of King Edward VIII. But the abdication crisis in December 1936 caused an unexpected delay, and concerns of a possible shortage of coins led to an extraordinary issue. Marked by a raised dot on the reverse, a total of 191,237 10-cent coins were produced in early 1937, all bearing the old King George V obverse and the "1936" date. It's unlikely that any of these specimen strikes actually circulated. It is believed most were melted down, and only three of them are known to exist outside of museum collections.

Did you know?
  • The 10-cent and 25-cent coins struck in early 1937 featured a dot beneath the crossed maple boughs, while the one-cent coin featured a dot beneath the date. But unlike the rare dot dime and penny, the dot quarter was placed into circulation and many reside in private collections.
  • A total of 191,237 Dot 10-Cent coins were produced. One of the rare surviving specimens resides in the National Currency Collection as part of a 1937 specimen set that includes all three dot coins (it is the only set of its kind that is still intact).
  • How was the raised dot created? A punch was used to add a tiny circle to the reverse die.


Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
