Gold Sovereigns - Canada

The Royal Canadian Mint was created in Ottawa, Canada, and designed to look like a traditional British castle, such as Windsor Castle. The refinery opened in 1908 and produced Gold Sovereigns until 1919 (excluding 1912) but only made 628,152 gold coins.

The Ottawa Mint was primarily used by the Royal Mint to smelt down 22 carat Gold Sovereigns into 24 carat gold bullion bars, which were then used to repay the US Government for their loans during the First World War (1914 - 1918).

Coins produced at the Royal Canadian Mint bear the letter C above the year on the reverse. The Mint would become Canada's own refinery in 1931, and the same site is still their headquarters today, though the Canadian Mint has a second plant in Winnipeg for additional minting.
